Happy Birthday, Stephanie.

My oldest niece, Stephanie, turns 15 years old today. She is also the oldest of all the nieces and nephews. I wanted a nephew in the worst way, and announced to my co-workers that if it was a girl, I would have nothing to do with her. I wouldn't hold her, play with her - nada. Man, I ate those words! They reminded me of those words when I would parade her through the bakery when my sis was in. She was followed by 2 more nieces, and I didn't get my nephews until 6, 9, and 12 years later. By that time, she and her 2 sisters had me wrapped around their little finger.

So, happy birthday, Stephanie. Your Uncle Mark loves you a lot and I'm proud of the young lady you have become.

Below, a video of Stephanie playing Canon In D on the piano and violin - she recorded the piano part first
