I can't believe my family forgot my birthday

I'm 41 today so I'm not trying to whine and cry over my family forgetting my birthday like a kid or anything. It just would have been nice if they said something, ANYTHING. I live with my brother and his family. I woke up kind of late and everyone else was sitting in the living room. I have to go through the living room to get to the bathroom. My nephew said good morning to me and that was it. My brother and sister-in-law said nothing. An hour went by before my nephew said something. He said, "By the way, Happy Birthday." I gave him a hug and thanked him. My brother was right there and all he could say was, "I just thought it was Memorial Day." That was it. No Happy Birthday. Nadda. No gifts, cards, nothing. Has your family ever forgotten your special day? How did you handle it?
