all aboard

Part of the fun of starting your own family is beginning new traditions.
One of ours is the birthday train.



It's ridden many birthday cakes the last few years - neither of the children remember having a birthday without it....

Today was Bear's turn. (I am married to an officially old man now.)


Anyhoo. Happy Birthday, Bear! Hope this is the best year yet.

Bear...I know a man named Bear. He doesn't commute to Northern Ontario, does he? Naw, he'd have another wife and kids. That'd just be wrong!

Happy Birthday! Ya, and all those winks and nudges.

Great tradition! We have birthday interviews - the birthday boy gets interviewed on video about his birthday, and this always happens in the same place in the house, so we can run all the footage from all the years together and morph them from "'S my BUFFDAY!!!!!" straight through to "Da-a-a-a-d! Stop that, I want to get my presents!" Happy Birthday to Bear too.

Birthday Train, what a fabulous idea. I love family traditions, especially when they are new ones that you introduce and your kids latch on to them. It makes me feel like I really have my own family (instead of feelin like some impostor faking it all, which I feel like some times:) )

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
