I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 13 nieces and nephews (it's about to be 14 because yet another one is due in October!). 5 great-nephews & 5 great-nieces (which is about to be 11 because, yes, there a baby girl due in October "Brooklyn Grace"). And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Not well at ALL! Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 10 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens, Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.

Sally’s lines were almost ruined because of a loose tooth
Of course, hiring children who could barely read to provide the voices for these characters presented a number of challenges. But Kathy Steinberg, the young actress who voiced Sally, almost had to be replaced. Just as they were nearing the end of her recording sessions, she had a loose tooth and the gap in her teeth could cause a lisp in her voice that would sound different from the dialogue they had already recorded. The crew had to rush Kathy into the recording studio as soon as it opened to get the rest of her lines on tape. Her tooth fell out during her very last line.
NASA took inspiration from Snoopy’s Flying Ace
Snoopy’s “Flying Ace” became one of his most famous alter egos, both onscreen and in newsprint. He even became a good luck charm for the NASA astronauts during the Apollo space missions and as an icon for NASA safety. The crew of the Apollo 10 mission even brought a painting of the “Flying Ace” with them into space.
And there's more! Check out the entire list here.
