    It's her Golden Birthday - but with a twist. Katie Murley will turn 8 tomorrow on Aug. 8.

    In other words, she'll be 8 on 8/8/08.

    "It's my favorite number," Katie says with a smile.

    A Golden Birthday, also known as a Grand or Star Birthday, is one in which a person turns the age of their birth date.

    Katie says the No. 8 has been lucky for her. Her mother, Jackie Livers, says Katie sometimes thinks the No. 8 has been able to get things "changed" for her, such as a "no" from a parent to a "yes."
