Happy Birthday to my son.

I can not believe it has been 29 years since your birth. I still remember you being overdue and going to play minature golf on April 1st and the pains starting and getting to the hospital to be told April Fool’s!! I was just dehydrated. It would be eight more days before you made your appearance.

In every life there are ups and downs, highs and lows, but overall, you have been the ups and the highs of my life.

Happy Birthday!!!

Our Anniversary–for the house

In our family we celebrate our house anniversary–the day we moved into our house. In our old house, it was St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th. So, no corned beef and cabbage for this Irish family, we had a nice steak dinner.

Today is the first anniversary of our new, built just for us, house. So we are having a nice steak dinner, red potatoes, salad, rolls, and wine to toast our first year here in Reno. Can not believe a whole year has passed since we got the keys and moved from our apartment with several inches of snow on the ground and soooooo cold.

Happy Anniversary to our home.


Do you celebrate in offbeat ways in your family?
