Although the title of this post may look like I've been hitting the sauce, it's actually how Elise says "Happy Birthday". Or rather, sings "Happy Birthday to You". Which she's been doing over and over since she turned two a few weeks ago.
My poor, sweet child must be so confused over this birthday stuff. First we haul her off to another city and tell her it's her birthday. Then we come home and tell her we're going to have a big party on the weekend to celebrate her party. Except we don't, and I can actually blame it on the rain (blame it on the sun...). And the fact that Fred and I were running temperatures over 102.
So then we start telling her we're going have the party the following weekend, and she's been singing "Happy Day You" ever since.
So we actually pulled it off, and I've got to say... it was a lot of fun. Ulcer notwithstanding, I'm glad we decided to throw a big celebration. Especially with what we've been through over the past year. It was sort of like saying, "suck it diabetes!"
The best part was seeing all the people that came out to help us celebrate Elise's life. We were so touched and so blessed by everybody just being there and having fun. What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon/evening, surrounded by wonderful friends. Thank you for being a part of our little girl's life!
