Remember when I told you that my daughter was amazing? Well I now have proof and I want to share it with all of you. After much pleading (harping) I finally got Jenna, Amara’s Mom and the best daughter ever, to start her own blog Jenna’s Random Thoughts and Recipes.
Yesterday she out did herself in honor of my Un-Birthday!
I was actually born on December 16th — waaaay to close to Christmas for my liking. It didn’t help that my Dad and my sister also had birthdays in December.
Three years ago Jenna, the awesome daughter, not only gave me permission but encouraged me to move my birthday! So I did. To anyone else out there reading this who has a birthday in December I highly recommend moving it! I appreciate Christmas so much more now and I absolutely love my birthdays! The day is all mine. No birthday gifts wrapped in Christmas paper. It has changed my whole perspective on having birthdays.
Now I know you can’t legally change your birthday like you can your name but you can change when you choose to celebrate it! I chose June 16th.
So we celebrated my birthday last night with the kids. I got to request my birthday dinner and my birthday dessert. I requested Chicken Curry and Cherry Cobbler. Jenna has posted both recipes on her blog. Dinner was amazing! I’ve never heard my husband rave about dinner and dessert the way he did last night! The curry was wonderful and the cobbler was superb, the best I have ever had. I’m still kicking myself for not having another bowl of it. Jenna timed everything perfectly so that the cobbler was just coming out of the oven when we sat down to dinner. It was still very warm and was extra wonderful with ice cream melting into it. Why didn’t have another piece?
I want to thank my family, especially Jenna, for making it such a wonderful birthday.Tags: Amara, birthday, Mommy
