My sister Merilee was born on our mother's birthday. We've always enjoyed celebrating their birthdays together. All four of us siblings were able to attend the party this year at my house and many of the grandchildren and great grandchildren. Also mom's sister, Aunt Norma and Uncle Skeeter. Norma also had a baby on the same Dec. 10 day - our cousin Jami. We always called Merilee and Jami the twin cousins. Mom and Norma were living in different cities and didn't even know each other had had their baby. Long distance calls then were prohibitive and rare.
