26 years ago your big sister and I were watching the St. Patrick's Day Parade on TV, when I felt "funny". We went on with our day, drove to Grammy and Grampy's, dropped off Becky and went to a movie. Still, feeling "funny", your dad and I went to see Splash, but by the middle of the movie, I was having contractions. Your Dad being who he is said “Can’t we just see the end and then leave"? "Are you kidding"? Actually we did stay!! By the time we got back to
Grammy's the contractions were 45 minutes apart, we were an hour from home and a snowstorm was raging. We left you big sister at Grammy's and you were born at 4:18 AM.

Happy Birthday Sweetie,
we love you very much!!
PS Your favorite color was green until you were in High School!!!
