Happy Leap Day!
Since Leap Day only happens every four years, I thought it deserved it’s own post of recognition. The cartoon below just cracks me up. It perfectly summarizes how I feel about this day.
I’ve always been intrigued by Leap Day. It’s hard to wrap my mind around an extra day that finds itself on the calendar every few years.
I think I’m going to show Ridley how to leap like a frog and we’ll play with his little toy frogs to celebrate. 🙂
Were you born on February 29th? How did you celebrate your birthday?
Are you doing anything special to celebrate Leap Day this year?

Today is my mom’s birthday, since we get to celebrate it every 4 years, I want her day to be special today. We are driving to see her and surprise her for the day. I made these cookies yesterday http://jennysteffens.blogspot.com/search?q=valentines+sugar+cookies.
So I think we will have a fun day. I love the idea of playing leap frog, I think my toddler might get a kick out of that! Thanks for suggesting. Have a great day!
Happy Birthday to your mom! I know she had a lovely day with y’all! 🙂 And those cookies look yummy!
I can’t wrap my thoughts around it either! It is so strange!!

I have a friend who’s birthday is today. I think it is so neat. I love the idea of making the days theme about frogs and playing leap frog.

De-lurking to say that today is my birthday!! I am celebrating #8!! I love having a Leap Year birthday. Here’s why: I celebrate every year on the 28th & people always send me cards & gifts. But, every 4th year, I get extra cards & gifts & birthday wishes because everyone realizes it is extra-special for me. In fact, 4 years ago I appeared on Martha Stewart’s show for her special Leap Day show. Everyone in the audience had a Feb. 29th birthday. Pretty cool, huh??!!
Kelly, that is so cool! And so much fun! 🙂 Happy Birthday!! 🙂
I’ve had fun with my kids today, doing special activities and having some fun treats (frog cupcakes!) I also created a Leap Day time capsule for kids that is really easy to fill out, and then you open it up in four years on the next Leap Day. You can download all the free printables on our blog: http://mysisterssuitcase.blogspot.com
Thanks and Happy Leap Day!
So fun, Holly! Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
Leap-frogging sounds like a great way to celebrate this day!
My youngest son Lee was born on March 29. Leap Year is a big deal to him, because it’s the only time when has an 11/12 birthday! We don’t celebrate fractions of birthdays, but he likes to count down the months until his next birthday rolls around. 🙂
Well, I should say we don’t USUALLY celebrate fractions of birthdays. I did end up making him some of his favorite cookies for Leap Day!

I have always wished that I was born on february 29th, and if possible, I want to get married on leap day… next leap year i’ll be 20, so if I get engaged anytime before that, it’ll be perfect! We would celebrate on march 1, the day we woke up as man and wife, and every four years get a big celebration… maybe a vaca? ummmm and this is a really long comment! annnd I love your blog… just sayin!
