Quizzical Wednesday - Holiday Cheer

You Spread a Lot of Holiday Cheer

During the holidays, you represent the true spirit of Christmas.

You give freely, and you enjoy this special time of the year.

There's a good chance that you spread cheer every time of the year... not just during the holidays.

You're kind, upbeat, and generous. Anyone who crosses your path is lucky.

Quizzical Wednesday - Wrapping Paper

You Are Dependable and Trustworthy

You approach the holidays with drive and determination.

You're usually the one who does all of the organizing and work.

You love being in charge of Christmas dinner, decorating the tree, and picking out presents.

You know that everything will be perfect, as long as you're the one behind the wheel.

Of all the types, you're the most likely to search far and wide to find the best deal on the gifts you give.

You're also the most likely to have a very detailed system for how you wrap and label presents.

Quizzical Wednesday - Christmas Lights

You Are Gold Lights

Your holidays are a time of abundance and riches.

Even if you don't have a lot during the rest of the year, this is the time that you splurge a little.

Your holidays traditions tend to be a bit old fashioned and dignified.

You like old holiday movies, properly wrapped presents, and family recipes passed down over the years.

Happy Birthday Don!

Lessons in napkin folding, originally uploaded by JewellsinSEA.

Since there is no rule about revealing a man's age and because you outed my age on my birthday, I have no guilt in telling the world that you are 38 today! :-) Thankfully you still know how to act much, much, much younger as demonstrated in the photo above (taken on our vacation in Kauai in July 2009).

Thank you for all you bring to my life! I can't wait to celebrate with you and hope the coming year is filled with great many, many, many wonderful adventures and dreams come true.

Happy Someday Kat!

Magic Kingdom, originally uploaded by JewellsinSEA.

For the last 5 years Kat and I have been having this When Harry Met Sally inspired conversation.

Kat: But I'm going to be 40!
Me: When?
Kat: Someday.
Me: In _____ (fill in appropriate time frame year/month)

"Someday" has arrived and today is Kat's 40th Birthday! Happy Birthday! I can't wait to celebrate with you tonight and for the next week or so! You bring so much joy to my life and I am so lucky to know you. I hope that the coming years are filled with great joy, amazing successes and lots of laughter!

You Are Nachos

You are outgoing and generous. You love to share you life with other people.

You are carefree and light-hearted. You try to always make the best of things.

While you enjoy being with other people, you also value your alone time.

You like to reflect, think, and pick things apart. You like to study everything carefully.
