When we arrived in Ft Wayne, Azaan hugged me and then immediately asked,"Grammy will you cook some Grammy food for us"? I was thrilled at the request and told him of course I would! A couple days later I went to his school and read, There's an Owl in the Closet and he...

Getting older, getting better!

Getting older, getting better!
