Jilly got a Lilli for her birthday

Happy birthday to my youngest, Jillian, who got a very special early birthday present this year:

So Jill and Lillianna will share the same birth month, along with my wife, her father, Jesus, Stan Lee, and several other people in the extended family. We'll just call it a party month.

Here are the birthday girls along with dad, Doug Mapes:





Happy birthday, Jill! Something tells me that coffee maker we got you is going to get quite a workout for the next eighteen years or so. Love you guys!

That's sister/aunt Charis in the background. It's my turn to hold the baby, Charis!
