Today is my nephew and Dad's birthdays! (We seem to share A LOT of birthdays in this family).
It also happens to be Texas Independence Day as well as Sam Houston's Birthday. What an awesome day for two native Texans to be born on!
Just remembered it's also Dr. Seuss' birthday. Fun!
Today my father turned 69 and my nephew 22. HOW did that happen?
As I always say, no matter his age, in my mind's eye my nephew Luke will always be that sweet little boy singing and dancing in our living room to Gene Kelly's Singing in the Rain.
Even today, 22 years later, his spirit is just as sweet.
FYI: The audio and video quality is poor because I re-filmed it, from the tv, with my digital camera on a tripod.
Goodness, how I miss those days!!!!!! They were so MAGICAL. I just wish I got to enjoy them a little bit longer before they moved. To this day I still grieve over that and have this fear that the kids don't remember those days very clearly because they were so young back then. (The thought of that kills me. It's a dagger through the heart).
Well... at least I know and remember, even without all the journals and videos I made of them.
And there were A LOT of those. Good Gracious, with documenting their childhood I think I broke a record or two, or three... or ten.
Best thing I ever did.
