My daughter, Becky, and husband, Harold, and my Dallas family have somehow wound up together making their daughter, Susan, and husband, Jonathan’s home headquarters for the big family celebration. Could be because Jonathan is a great cook and seems to enjoy having us all there. And, of course, baby Sydney is now our centerpiece.
