Happy Leap Day!

On the list of crazy stuff that's happened, the Henriksen family's Leap Day trifecta ranks near the top.

On February 29, 1960, Heidi Henriksen was born. Four years later to the (Leap) day, she was joined by brother Olav. And on February 29, 1968, the Henriksens achieved the improbable with Leif-Martin. Today, the Henriksens are celebrating their 12th, 11th and 10th birthdays. (Leif-Martin was kind enough to send us that family photo.)

Other people celebrating a birthday today (who didn't send in a photo): Ja Rule (February 29, 1976), former Law & Order star Dennis Farina (February 29, 1944), former linebacker Bryce Paup (February 29, 1968) and motivational speaker Anthony Robbins (February 29, 1960).

Last year, we learned that a few readers are also in this exclusive club (or at least are close to a Leap Day baby): Kate's mom (they turned 11 in the same year), Sandy, Alex, Moonablaze's friend, and Julie's boyfriend. And happy 4th anniversary to Jo-Anne and her husband!

Since last February, our audience has grown considerably. So I'll ask everyone born on this date to speak up and assure your place in our Leap Day 2012 post.
