Today is my son Sam's birthday.  And as we discovered when
Steven's mother was living in Ottawa, Steven's birthday too.
Some mix up when Steven was born recorded the wrong date.
And he found out that the date on his birth certificate was 

Our solution?  As Sam's birthday was November 7, and 
Steven had celebrated on November 8 for his whole life,
we kept that tradition.  Today we took Sam a cake, and cards,
and gave him a present.

And today it's Happy Birthday to Sam, a wonderful
young man, happily married for a year at the end of
this month.  We love him, and are so proud of him.

Happy Birthday Sam!
