Happy Birthday Dad!
We celebrated with a big homemade feast by my mom! Dad’s birthday officially kicks off the birthday season….Mavie’s next, tomorrow, he turns 5!, then me on Feb 20; the very next day my brother; three days later my grandpa turns 90!, and eight days later on March 3 my mom celebrates her birthday, and finally 12 days later Jennifer! WOW! That’s 7 birthdays in the span of just over a month! The next birthday cluster is the fall, with Grampy, Annika, James and Selena, all within two months!

Dad got David and I an early, priceless, birthday gift. Throughout our childhood, my dad kept a scrapbook for David and I, and collected all of our sports, school and dance achievements. The books got so overfilled that they started to fall apart. Unbeknownst to us, my dad spent the last while restoring these scrapbooks for David and I and presented them to us at David’s surprise party. Very special, and something that I’ve always appreciated, and will always be cherished by myself and my kids.
