Family Birthdays Get Me Every Time

| all photos via |

Isn’t it funny that out of 365 days, two of my family members’ birthdays just happen to fall on the same day? It’s true. And actually, this isn’t the only case of such coincidence.

Today, August 23, would have been the 100th birthday of the better-known relative, Uncle Gene.

More importantly though, it’s the fourth birthday of my eldest nephew, Liam. Perhaps he’ll grow up to be movies like his birthday buddy. Or maybe not. All that’s important is that he’s happy and that today, he eats a honkin’ slice of cake. (plus some for me, since we live on separate coasts)

Happy Birthday Liam, Uncle Gene and all the other August 23rd birthday people.

The other coincidence is my brother and a different nephew (from the Mr.’s side of the fam) who were both born on Thanksgiving day, twenty-some years apart.

The birthday celebration continues tomorrow. Come back to see what Liam will be unwrapping later today!

    Try when you have triple family members…twice. That’s when you know you’ve made it. 🙂 3 grandparents on the same day and 2uncles and an aunt on the same day. Our family doesn’t like to spread it out, just get it done all at once.
