We are very proud of the person she has grown into. Apparently her father and I did something right through the years. Being an only child she did NOT get everything she wanted, but she was spoiled in that she did not have to share our attention with a sibling of the human kind anyway. (She would tell you she did have to share with the dog and cat!) I remember many weekend trips to grandma and grandpa's house where I'd hear "Fritz - move over - you are hogging my half of the seat!" "Mom - Make Fritz move over - he has his paws on me." It was funny and makes me laugh when I think about it.
She grew up, married a wonderful man (our son-in-law) and they are happy with two cats and two gerbils in their life. They are all very special to us.

|We had a wonderful family Birthday celebration yesterday with our SIL'S brother and wife, SIL's parents, and of course the birthday girl, SIL, and Don and I. We are fortunate in that our extended families are all small, thus for birthdays and some holidays we can all enjoy them together.|
Take a look at that cake! It was every bit as good as it looks. It came from a new Guatamalen Bakery that had recently opened in their city. I think it might become a new family favorite.
