Mary Ann and Bill

This is my sister-in-law, Mary Ann. When I think of Mary Ann, the phrase "multi-tasking" comes to mind. I've seen Mary Ann wear a tape recorder around her waist, listening to the latest book-on-tape, while moving around the house straightening up. She throws parties, with delicious, elaborate menus, entertains effortlessly and when the party is over, the kitchen is clean and all the food has been put away. She keeps a grueling schedule for work that frequently has her playing catch-up with her sleep, but still finds time to lead a Girl Scout troop and attend Little League games. And more, she carves out time for scrapbooking and for taking pictures. Mary Ann never seems frazzled. She is so even-tempered! I don't know how she does it all.Bill is such a family man. He is totally dedicated to his home and to helping Mary Ann raise their two beautiful children. Bill also has a large extended family to whom he is devoted. A party at Bill and Mary Ann's usually means lots of family and lots of children, and that's the way they like it. When my kids were little, nothing would excite them more than to be told that we were going to visit Uncle Bill. To them Uncle Bill represented fun. Uncle Bill always had cool gadgets, and a basement full of games waiting to be explored. Uncle Bill never changes. He still has the best and latest gadgets, and visiting Bill and Mary Ann is always, always fun.
