We celebrated October birthdays Saturday. Jennifer's birthday was on the 10th., Liz's is on the 20th, and our friend Christy Brawner's was today - the 12th. It was a lot of fun having everyone over for roast, mashed potatoes, corn and biscuits. Of course there was strawberry pizza and a new recipe that Liz found for pumpkin crunch for dessert. I love hanging out with my family. Beulah ( aka Grandma) and her "friend" Ray. It was his first Shackelford get together. Hopefully we didn't scare him off.
Yesterday was Jennifer's 30th birthday and she celebrated by running in a splash and dash here in Memphis. Fred and her good friends Cory and Melody ran with her. We all went to watch. I was very impressed with all four of them. After the race we all went to eat some yummy barbeque.
And on a side note, this morning Zach and Liz had a birthday party to go to for a friend of theirs. It was an 80's skating party and they dressed for the occasion. They were really funny! Jack was actually scared of them--with good reason!
Friday was my dad's birthday. He is 75 years young. I tried to tell him that he was 76 because he was 19 when I was born and I am 56. But after doing the math I realized that not only is he 75, but I am only 55. That was a nice present to me. But it did make me wonder - who is getting old and senile? It appears that it isn't dad!
