February may be the shortest month, but in some ways it's also the busiest month.

A big Happy Birthday goes out to my younger brother, Sean, who is turning 21 this weekend.

It's crazy how much time has passed. He's come so far in his 21 years and I look forward to where he goes next.

Of course I'm not really sure how this makes me feel that he's catching up in age, but what I do know is I'm proud of the young man Sean has become.

The fun continues a few days later with several cousins of mine also celebrating birthdays.

It gets pretty interesting considering they are a mom, dad and son and their birthdays are closely related.

So I'm also sending a Happy Birthday to Marshall on Feb. 17, Rich on Feb. 18 and Nikki on Feb. 20.

After all of these family members celebrate their birthdays, we get a break until the next round of the birthday marathon.

Luckily none of us get sick of cake that easily with all of these birthdays taking place.
