Groundhog Day

I always think of my aunt Sharlene this time of year. While I have many very kind, loving aunts, Sharlene is my coolest aunt. Why? Here are a few reasons:

1. She's been on the ski patrol for more than 20 years.
2. She used to be a river guide in the summers.
3. She used to work at Robert Redford's ranch and on one Christmas Day when she was working on the ski patrol, he skied up to her and gave her a kiss. This was not a big deal to her.
4. She used to have a cousin party for us every Christmas.
5. She celebrates Groundhog Day.

So, when I saw this today, I e-mailed her the link immediately. This is probably the cutest treat I've seen in a very long time. Check out the link and celebrate tomorrow!

I like Groundhog Day and the movie is one of my all time favorites so I celebrate by watching that movie every year. Cook cupcake!

i love that it wasn't a big deal to your aunt when she was kissed by robert redford! what DOES it take to impress her?
she sounds very cool. every kid should have a cool aunt.

Michal - she is not easily impressed. Because she worked for Uncle Bob (as she calls him), she doesn't think of him as particularly famous or special. I think it's hilarious.
