Holy Week Birthday Boy

When your birthday falls in Holy Week, odds are you are going to spend a good part of it in church.  This new 12 year old got up at 6:30 to serve for the presanctified with his "middle name sake", who also shares his birthday!  Many years to both!

Follow that with birthday shopping with Dad for a new bike (his knees were hitting his chin on the old one :) 

 The afternoon was spent turkey hunting, and boy did he bring home a big one!  Not sure I want turkey for Pascha though, this one might have to hit the freezer.  The birthday dinner will wait for next week, tonight's menu is bean soup!
