We have a DOB field that shows the full DOB of our employee. We send them a small gift each year so I need to see a list of employees by their month and date but not the year. After their birthday passes it will go to the bottom. So right now, 10-31 it would show birthdays starting in November then show December, Jan, Feb, etc.

declare @employee table(name varchar(30), dob datetime)
insert into @employee select
'waterduck', '20131031' union all select
'waterchicken', '20131101' union all select
'waterdog', '20131201' union all select
'watercat', '20140101' union all select
'waterrat', '20140201'

select day(dob), month(dob), name 
from @employee
where dob >= dateadd(d, datediff(d, 0, getdate()), 0)
order by dob

select 	*, 
	next_bd	= case 	when dateadd(year, year(getdate()) - year(dob), dob) < getdate()
			then dateadd(year, year(getdate()) - year(dob) + 1, dob)
			else dateadd(year, year(getdate()) - year(dob), dob)
from 	@employee
order by next_bd
