My husband was born days before CHRISTMAS. Truth be told, this is why he dons the name of Dear Mr. Clause. As all near born christmasers know.....it's a scandal to have to celebrate your birthday and your Christmas on the same occasion. See.....in our family, Mr. Nicholas takes the day off of work for birthdays. It's usually a pretty big deal, involving food, and sometimes a "staycation" in a hotel, so the kids can go swimming, order ice cream room service, sleep in and watch movies in bed. I always get really great birthdays. His...wellll let's just say they have been lacking...BUT NOT THIS YEAR BABY. Bags are packed, kids are sleeping, Grandpa is in the house and we are on our way to NEW YORK in an hour and he has NO IDEA! I'm dying from the surprise keeping...but there you have it...we are out the door, and he thinks he's going to pick his mom up from work!!
