Only 25 more days until we leave for Arizona. We are really looking forward to this vacation... we get to see Gary's cousin Wayne and his family. It's always fun when Hannah has the opportunity to visit with cousins she doesn't see very often and that are her age.
Today is my 44th birthday. Of course, my dad called me early this morning to tell me for the 44th time about the day he brought me home from the hospital in his shirt pocket, while a blizzard raged and he and my mother had to walk through deep snow to get into the house. I've always loved that story.
Growing up, I always requested tuna casserole on my birthday... much to the dismay of everyone in my family. I love the taste of pasta, creamy sauce and tuna mixed together and have withstood years of ribbing about it.. However, this year I am mixing it up a little... I requested... Shepherd's Pie! I know, I know.... I'm living on the edge aren't I?
