family holiday

Today is The Day Between Birthdays in my family...

Say happy belated birthday to Dad,
and happy early birthday to my brother Jens!

You see, back when my folks were living in Sweden, Dad asked Mom if she would be so kind as to cross her legs on November 26, seeing as how he'd rather not share his birthday with his firstborn.
Mom, being the obliging creature that she is, did a right proper job of hanging on to my older brother, and did not issue him forth until two days later.

So that leaves us with that day in between (which, now that we've moved to the States, quite often contains Thanksgiving) to catch our breath and not eat cake or pie for a day.

That is, until my cousin Eva was born - smack on The Day Between.

Happy birthday to one and all!
