In my family everyone has their birthdays between the end of July and early November except for me (all by my lonesome over in February ... well, I guess I'm not quite all alone as my newest niece was born in March) Anyway, August has the closest birthdays with my sister E on the 18th and my brother J on the 21st. In all their life they have only had one joint birthday party, so it makes for a busy week.
I had already given my sister her present, but I thought that since she really likes olives, I would include a jar with her birthday card.

If you know my brother J at all, you know he is pretty fun loving and keeps us all laughing. He also is doing courses so he can join the film making community sometime.

Since J enjoys movies, some of us decided to get him a couple more to add to his collection. After dinner, we watched Iron Man on the big screen (my parents have a projector).
