A studied disregard for the day, or something like that!

Today is the 25th of December. A Monday. Here is something wild to think of - did you know that once every month there is a 25th day of the month! (that's 12 times a year!!) And after thinking about it I think that August 25 is the only one that needs to be celebrated: Matthew & Analiese's birthdays.

Now don't get me wrong, I like to have a party at the end of December, the best day that several of us would agree on is the 27th. Why that day? you may ask, I will tell you!
The story starts in a town in Upstate New York. The year was 1943 and Raymond & Nina Clegg were expecting
their second child, my maternal Grandmother! So we can now agree that it is a good date to celebrate. =)

(As a latter note - we ate ham, rib roast, sweet potato medley, & garlic mashed potatoes, ending with sweet potato/pumpkin pie in celebration!)
