We’re celebrating another birthday at our house. Janna is 16 today. To honor her we finally went to see WICKED. Last night 12 of us converged on the Pantages Theater nosebleed section for the evening performance. Our enthusiastic group of friend and family still had a good view of things in spite of being in the last two rows of the theater. (Ohhh.....Mommy is always trying to save a buck!) Janna was pleased and we all had a nice time.

We plan to do some more celebrating tomorrow. Chicken Tetrazzini (Janna‘s favorite), asparagus (that was my choosing), and chocolate cake. Happy Birthday Janna! I love you!
