As you know, we had a very special birthday this past weekend. You also know that we had a big bash with tons of goodies and amazing guests. What I didn’t mention is how generous all these guests were.
Friday was L.L.’s official birthday and we started off the with five packages just for her. One from Ohio, one from Denver, one from Florida, one from New York City and one from Pittsburgh (WOW!). Thoughtfulness knows no bounds with this bunch. All of them were awesome gifts, but I have to say that my favorite will probably end up being the “One Love” book that my sister sent. You all know the Bob Marley song, right? Well, that is it and I have no doubt that there will be numerous nights where we sing along with that one.
Plus, we can’t forget our visitors from Denver either. That was a very special, as L.L. loves all people close to her size. We love being able to spend time with our extended family.
I’m sure you can imagine the big score was on Saturday. With all of the running around, cooking, decorating, visiting and celebrating I couldn’t bring myself to open the gifts while everyone was there. Plus, I didn’t think that L.L. could handle it either. So, we waited until the next day. It was very fun for me, and started out fun for L.L., while I think Gil just enjoyed watching us have fun with it. L.L. lost interest part of the way through and only wanted to gnaw on the packaged candy that she received. She started gaining more interest as toys came out with flashing lights, buttons and fun sounds.
For this part I did manage to take pictures so I will let those tell the rest of the story.
