Who doesn't like to celebrate a birthday? Wednesday, December 12th was my oldest son, Jeremy's birthday. Having a baby in December is difficult as this is also the month we celbrate the birth of Jesus Christ. When Jeremy was younger, We never put out our Christmas lights or decorations until after his birthday party. Gayle and I felt everyone deserves their own special day.
When Jeremy was born in 1970, new mothers and babies stayed in the hospital for 7 - 10 days. Jeremy was 10 days old when we took him home and naturally we dressed him in a tiny Santa suit - so adorable!
Jeremy's friend Casey wanted to surprise him with a dinner at one of his favorite restaurants in Lexington - Carrabas. The family gathered at the restaurant a few minutes early and surprised him when he came in. Chloe ran up to him at the entrance and was saying "Uncle Jeremy, we're here!"
