Summary:Death is coming for you, Anne Moody...

The Oddsmakers have been overseeing the use of magick in Las Vegas since the city's inception. For a dragon sorceress like Anne Moody, who tries to stay beneath the radar while running her cursed pawn shop, the Oddsmakers are the boogeymen she never wants to meet.

Today my first born child turns 3 years old.  THREE!  How did that happen?  Where does the time go?  She was a very serious baby who was ALL about Mommy.  Then she finally crawled at 10 months old and walked at 16 months.  She didn't speak until she was nearly two and a half.  She's a giant Daddy's girl these days.
She likes to help with her baby brother, she likes to snuggle with Mommy or Daddy at every opportunity, and she loves to play outside, usually with a ball and lately she's taken a strange sudden interest in hockey, then tell us all about her adventures.  She has shot up in the last 6 months and everybody mentions how tall she is now.  She still looks a lot like her dad, but there's definitely a little of me that shines through.
