    Hi all,

    It's time to wish our October Birthday babies a Very Happy Birthday. Let us know when yours is so we can all help you celebrate it.

    I'll start...mine is the 13th, hubby's the 18th and my Dad's is the 21st....

    Happy Birthday Hugs,

    We used to have 3 October birthdays in our family, but now we're down
    to two. I'd better get a couple cards.

    The Oct. birthstone is the opal. Comes up in crosswords. I think it was
    back in the 60s or 70s someone figured out how to make opals in the
    lab. I have one. A dramatic fire opal. This teaches us that we can
    have beauty in our lives without spending a lot of money.

    So many happy returns to all you Oct. babies.

    Mine is October 26th. My big brother is on Halloween.
    No fair! I wanted a Halloween birthday!!!

    I was born just in time to spoil his party though, by being the center of attention! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think he ever quite forgave me for that. hahaha

    (Even if you're not a Scorpio!!!) LOL!!!
    (My sis-in-law is an October baby, but a Libra.)

    My yearly retreat used to be my gift to myself, but since I can't get there lately...

    I'm gonna treat myself to a trip to the science center to see the Titanic exhibit, lunch in my fave restaraunt (Cunninghams' on 4th St), & a ghost walk (which is mostly outdoors, on sidewalks, where I can roll the chariot).

    Mom always makes me a cake - either devils' food, or banana walnut - & gets me a small gift.

    My brothers all send cards and/or give me a B-Day phone call.

    3 friends, in other towns, also send a small gift.

    What do y'all do for your B-Day?

    In 24 years of marriage, I doubt if my husband's been home for 3 of my birthdays. Since the beginning of the fiscal year starts in October, there's always money to send him somewhere other than here during this month.

    This year he's already been gone for almost 3 weeks at a school in DC and he won't be back home for another 3 weeks so my birthday is usually just another day for me.

    I don't mind it at all, birthdays beat the heck out of the alternative!

    My b-day is October 26!! October is just my favorite month of the year. I just love the fall colors and the cooler weather. I wonder if it's because I was born this month?

    My anniversary is October 11. It will be 13 years!! OMG...I can't believe it was that long ago already.

    Hey Pippi! It looks like we share the same b-day! How cool! Scorpios rule!!

    Happy Birthday to all October babies!!

    Once I checked to see if any famous peeps shared my (our!) B-Day.

    The only person who popped up was Hillary Clinton....

    And yes, Scorpios rule! Especially in my family. LOL!
    Poor Mom! 4 outta 6 kids are Scorpios!!!!!
    (2 late Oct. & 2 early Nov.)

    Happy Birthday Month!!!!!!

    Sorry, but I think I am a Libra. Does that count??

    We don't do a whole lot for our birthdays. Maybe DH and I will go out to dinner, either that day or the weekend, which ever works out the best. We usually do not buy each other presents (maybe it is because we never had much growing up) parties and lots of presents like many kids do, esp now days.

    I will probably get calls from kids, some cards and maybe a gift or two from the kids. None are that close so it is hard to just pop in.

    Yep Nancy, birthdays are much better than the alternative :) !!

    our tradition is to celebrate "the birthdays" with a weenie roast on a crisp fall evening, for the 5 (includes a SIL) with b-days within a 2-week span.

    Big Fun is had by all!


    PS: Granni: Yes, Libras count too, as y'all actually have most of the month! LOL!!!

    Some other famous people who share our birthday:
    Mahalia Jackson
    Jackie Coogan
    Bob Hoskins
    Pat Sajak
    Jaclyn Smith
    Lauren Tewes
    Cary Elwes
    Mike Hargrove

    We still celebrate birthdays in my family complete with cake and singing. My mom usually cooks a nice dinner, and she always bakes my favorite Dutch Apple pie. yum! We usually have a Halloween type theme for my b-day since it is so close to Halloween. I usually like to carve the pumpkins with my kids that day too.
    (I don't know what will happen this year though, because my SIL and mom are still not talking and our family is breaking apart over it....so I don't think they will get together to celebrate my b-day this year, which makes me sad.)
    I am getting to the age that I really am not too excited about birthdays though.....because I just keep getting older. Bleh.... AND I have to get new license plates and an AIM test for my car. Fun, fun!!
