SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) _ Patty Roeske celebrates her birthday with babies. Three of her four children were born on April 13 - nine months after her July birthday parties with her husband, Paul.

''Every year we celebrate,'' Mrs. Roeske said Tuesday. ''It's the gift that keeps on giving. For 18 years.''

Mrs. Roeske gave birth Saturday to Kara who will share the lucky birthday with 8-year-old Kimberly and 2-year-old Kristopher.

''I can't wait to see what happens the first time their birthdays all fall on Friday the 13th,'' Mrs. Roeske said.

The children arrived naturally, she said. No induced labor, no Caesarean sections.

Only 5-year-old Katie gets a day to herself, in September.

''She just likes to be the little princess,'' Mrs. Roeske said.
