Birthday Bonanza of Blessings

*Superboy received his birthday blessing after daily Mass last week*

Isn't it interesting how families end up having clusters of birthdays at certain times of the year?

Well, we have one of our clusters right about now...We have a series of 4 birthdays in our immediate family within a 6 week period!  Angel Baby kicked off the bonanza, followed by Dad, Superboy and Army Dude.
This makes for a busy Lenten season and trying to keep our eye on the ball in the midst of the celebrating...
~Dad caught up with me and turned 45~
Superboy turned 8 and was thrilled to get his first new bike!
Now the 3 youngers all have wheels...
We're ready to roll:)

Up next is a new teenager in the house come St. Patrick's Day!
We had a shared birthday celebration with all the grandparents this weekend...We cherish those moments while we have them!
The two March birthday boys shared a cake...
They don't mind sharing when it comes to Baskin Robbins ice cream cake and a football team that they both love!
It was the perfect Sunday afternoon with family around the table...good memories made, indeed!
The birthday bonanza of blessings always remind us of the dignity of human life.  We are all made in His image and likeness for a special purpose here on earth.  Birthdays are a great reminder of this!
Human life is precious...Each and every one!


  1. Sending prayers for many blessings and happy birthdays your way! I have a very excited, soon-to-be 7 year old my self (March 8th). :)

  2. What fun! I just love celebrating birthdays! May all your celebrants receive abundant blessings throughout this next year of life! P.S. Thanks for the birthday card ;) Lovely!

  3. Funny, I just posted today about a birthday, and we have the same thing, the start of birthday season at our house! Over the next 6 weeks or so we have 4 birthday's. Two fall during Lent, which is a challenge, but one falls during Easter week - that's fun!! Enjoy your birthday celebrations!!

  4. Happy Birthday to all! Love all the pictures! +JMJ+

  5. Wow that is alot of birthdays in a short time!
    We cluster around this time of the year too. One in Feb, three in April and then one around Memorial Day. My youngest actually had his birthday on Ash Wednesday and my oldest will have his on Good Friday this year. Makes for an extra special Lent! Superboy looks so proud of his new bike! It looks like you all had so much fun and a super yummy looking cake too! Thanks for sharing :D

  6. I've received a few requests to open up Pay It Forward to posts from a bloggers own blog. Being open minded ... I thought I'd give it a try. Although the original idea was to share what you've seen elsewhere on the internet, I fully recognize that each time we post something on our own blogs we are also sharing Good News, great tips, wonderful prayers, fabulous photos, scrumptious recipes, hilarious humor, unbelievable books, stories of goodwill, or good things that have knocked our socks off. So let's give it a try—shall we?

    I'll leave the March linky open until March 14th. Enter your links below or on the original post. (Entered links will appear in both places.) I can't wait to see what gets posted!

  7. Happy Birthday's to your family! You've had much love and celebration as of late. You're blessed to still have grandparents involved in your children's lives.

  8. Happy birthday to everyone!! my, that IS a lot of birthdays bunched together. makes for some hefty celebrations. (you look beautiful, btw!)Must be that west coast sun and sea air!
