Happy Birthday

My dear sister. I miss you terribly.

An enjoyable month

I must say this month has been pretty darn enjoyable.  We had our family vacation trip to DisneyWorld, which rocked of course.  My dad and nephew came down from MI to visit.  My nephew actually lives in MO, but he decided to stay with us for a month or so.  We enjoy having him around.
