It was so miserable out we didn't even get my birthday takeout. I made a small crockpot of bean soup instead. It might not have been a winter wonderland outside but the house smelled warm and cozy all day.
I should also mention that in the crowd of family December birthdays today is Number One Son's. 43 years ago I went to the hospital instead of going to the birthday party my parents were throwing for me and he was born soon after midnight. Best birthday present ever-even better than some snow.
