|My sisters-in-law Kathy and Susan are August birthday gals too. We celebrate them whenever we are together in August.|
|Ed's 60th was a blast a few years ago.|
I love how kids look forward to and celebrate not just on the actual day but for months leading up to it. And now they have these things called 'half birthdays'. I think that's a cute idea. Nobody expects gifts on a half birthday, I don't think, but it breaks the very long year up for those wee ones who have a hard time waiting. It makes them realize that they are so special that their parents even mark the halfway point to their next birthday. I love it. Anything that can make us feel special is a good thing, don't you think?
|Dooger, at about 2 I think.|
And I get to make a wish and wear a funny hat if I want to. And I talk to and visit with my family and friends. My sister Cindy and her husband and whoever else is in the house at the time (kids, grandkids) always call and sing 'Happy Birthday' to me. The whole song. Steve puts on his operatic voice, usually. I never answer Cindy's call on my birthday. I let it go to voice mail so I have a recording of the Kahn Family Singers. Then I call back.

And this year, Lily is even counting down to my birthday. I don't know if I will see her and her baby brother Owen on the exact date, but she knows that Grammy's is the next birthday coming up. Maybe they'll Facetime me. I bet they will!
|Owen's birthday this summer was the social event of the season.|
Yes, it's a great day today. And not just for me. It's a great day for Madonna, and Steve Carell;
|Becky's 50th was so much fun!|
Anyway, if any of you are having "YOUR" day today or soon, I hope it's a fantastic one! I am sure mine will be. Happy Birthday, Me!
|Thanks to my sis-in-law Susan for the hat! I love it!|
Have a great day!
