Great’s Christmas Birthday 2010

Dec 2010 046
Great was definitely surprised when the mariachi’s started to rattle to the tune of Happy Birthday!

 Our family tradition is dinner and a movie (or two) on Christmas Eve to celebrate's Great's Christmas Birthday.  It started when the kids were small and funds were sparse. Disney dollar movies and 99 cent burgers were an anticipated delectable treat! Over the years, as funds allowed, we expanded to various establishments of fine dining with linen napkins and the works.

Now, with grandchildren (and great-grandkids for Great), we've compromised to all eating together and then those that can to continue on to the movie.  We've had great years with Bond and Narnia and countless Disney Princesses.

This year, for Great Papa, we opted for the IMAX 3-D TRON.  However, though we ALL enjoy the 3-D, we'll let Great choose her own movie choice for next year.
 
And, it's a safe bet that the fiesta dinner will be a repeat:  Our family LOVES Mexican for our family dinners!

Our INSPIRATIONAL FAMILY FOCUS is from an address by Elder L Tom Perry: 
The Importance of the Family
In a world of turmoil and uncertainty, it is more important than ever to make our families the center of our lives and the top of our priorities.
Families lie at the center of our Heavenly Father’s plan.”

I wish I'd known! I love that top picture of Grandma- it's priceless! One of these years we will have to have a double b-day party for Sam and Grandma for sure.

Yes! That's a must do! And probably sooner than later or Great might not be able to enjoy the double birthday party with her Great Grandson! Now that you know, it's an every year tradition on our end, so you can make your plans to join us for next Christmas!
