A fun digression: This year our daughter, Amelia, turned 21. She is at university in Australia and our son, Jon, couldn’t be there for the party. He wanted to send her a birthday message so he made this absolutely fun video for her. Maybe it doesn’t really belong on my website but it’s such fun and so darn good I felt it deserved to exist somewhere for awhile!! So if you’re a reader who likes family photos or a reader who gets a little sentimental about your own siblings, the music is great and you get to see a bit about our lives through this little video. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! – Heather
