It was Philip’s birthday last week and it was wild and crazy as usual. Why change a good thing?! Phil asked for tacos and a heart cake, chocolate with white frosting and his name spelled out in M&M peanuts. We had the entire family here—all 16 of us. We didn’t know that three of them were coming so it was a wonderful surprise. It just added to the excitement of the evening. After everyone was here and the prayer was said we consumed dozens of hard and soft shell tacos. Then there was the opening of gifts which also looked a lot like previous years—a shirt, DVDs, a microphone, money. Now for the finale, the singing of happy birthday (in opera and conducted by Phil) and the eating of cake and ice cream. Ahhh, it was another good birthday.
