October Birthdays

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.

Run, Jennifer, Run!

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!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

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!
