A Holiday Birthday

Aside from the merriment that accompanies the holiday season, December also happens to be a busy birthday month in our household.  Last Sunday, we hosted a very casual and intimate family gathering to celebrate my older son's twelfth birthday!  I think it must be "hard" especially as a child having a birthday so close to a major holiday, so I try to keep each occasion separate and special every single year.

We ultimately set-up the food on the kitchen island, which is also where the kids ate...

It is always fun when our family gathers, but welcoming them into our home during the holiday season brings a more festive dimension.  Our warm and cozy holiday home was filled with even more love, laughter, and family on this special evening!

The four of us ended the night with a movie and sleepover in our family room... although my hubby escaped to a comfortable bed in the middle of the night... hmmm.

We continued the birthday fun at an amusement park on Monday, my son's actual birthday!

I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season with your loved ones!
