I'm not a fan of birthdays, I never have been. I don't dislike them but I don't really get that excited.
Yesterday was my dads birthday, I got him a book, took him to lunch and made him dinner and a cake. After dinner I kicked his butt at scrabble TWICE! It was nice.
Sunday is my birthday and aside from going to church I really don't have anything planning. Money is tight this year so I'm not expecting anything really. I might go to my aunts for dinner but since I don't know anyone in Big Royal, my real birthday celebrating will happen when I go back to Little Holland with my sister and mom.
I'm excited to go home for Christmas, I'm driving down with my dad on the 19th to have a Christmas with my sister and from there I'm going to Sarnia for a few days with PD and K before heading back to Little Holland for Christmas. Then I'm taking the train back here on boxing day for Christmas in Big Royal with my dad.
It will be my first Christmas since my parents separated so it should be weird. I've debated going back to my old church while I'm home, I love my new church so much and last time I went back I didn't feel like I belonged anymore, I didn't know the new pastor and most of the people i knew there weren't there, I might ask if Peeps is going to Woody and go with him. Who knows.
Today I'm gathering the ingredients I need for my Christmas baking, I've decided that instead of giving them to friends I'm going to give them to people who have really made a difference in my life.
This years goody menu includes Rocky Road S'more's bars (Yummy) ,Snickerdoodles, Eggnog cookies, Chocolate chip pistachio cookies, among other yummy treats :) I can't wait to start baking. Ava! you're first on the list!
CC, Friends, Botanica and Babies!
