Happy Octave of Birthday!


If you know my family, you know birthdays are a big deal. Growing up we had birthday week and celebrated birthday eve. No, we didn't get presents each day, but it was still fun. My mom and I finally realized that not everyone celebrates birthday week or birthday eve!!! SERIOUSLY!?!?

So anyways, we got to laughing that we should add to our celebration and do Octave of Birthday... anything for one more day of celebration. Well, wouldn't you know, my mom was serious and the other day we got an Octave of Birthday present in the mail for Deacon. Made me laugh so hard... and Deacon didn't get it, but he sure enjoyed it.

Why would anyone ever laugh at Octave of Birthday. No one laughs at the Christmas Octave. OK -- maybe you can laugh at Pentecost Birthday (40 days after the birthday) ..... I love you!, duh .....
