Did ya'll know that I actually have an alias name?
Most people who know me say it suits me perfectly!!
Pro Crasti Nation.
But I like it when everyone calls me by my first name
since it sounds so positive!!
It sound upbeat and skilled.
I hear you groaning!! :-D
Last week Son #1 and Cousin #3 had a birthday.
Son #1 turned the BIG 3 - 0!!!
He's officially "old" now!!
Last year I was more creative (read: had more time on my hands)
and posted lots of pictures.
You can see them here.
This year you can see what keeps him busy...
Cousin #3 turned 19
We have a few shared birthdays in our family. I was born on my mom's birthday and my mother-in-law's is just the day before--plus my sister-in-law's is a few days before that. Son #1 and Cousin #3 share the same birthday just 2 days after my dad's. Son # 3 and Cousin #1 share a birthday (a day apart) several days after Christmas and is a few days after Son #4's birthday and Son #1's wife's birthday and a week and a half after Grandson #1's birthday and over 2 weeks after my oldest younger sister's birthday (put it this way... December is our all time "Birthday Month"!!). Daughters #2 and 4 are just a day apart and 1 day after my step-dad's. Son #6 and Cousin #2 are just a few days apart. And my youngest sister shares a birthday with Cousin #5. Interestingly enough, Grandson #1's birthday is 9 days before my daughter-in-law's birthday and Grandson #2's is 9 days before my son's. :-)
In many ways it's easier to double or triple up and have a combined birthday party. It's always lots of fun when you get to share your days anyway. I can remember how exciting it was for due dates to be on or around someone's birthday. The months without at least one birthday is pretty much nonexistant!! :-)
I don't like to give out exact birthday dates--just to protect everybody. So that's why I'm usually late in posting birthday wishes. That and the need to live up to my name. :-)
