Q. What do you give a 900 pound gorilla for his birthday?
A. I don’t know. But you better hope that he likes it !
George is turning two. He happened to be visiting Grandma with his family for the week-end. George doesn’t live where Grandma lives. So, we gathered up all of George’s cousins who live nearby and even a great-grandmother. Dinner was okay. Meatloaf and baked potatoes. George likes baked potatoes. Then, we went outside for the party !
The little kids seem to do better with cupcakes than cake. That is what I usually make for them. Just like a child, George saw magic in everything. Parents are often busy just watching over their children. That is why a Grandmother with a camera is a good thing.
When George opened his first present from his great-grandmother, you would have thought that it was a pony. SOCKS. Look, socks! He showed everyone. Children are naturally grateful. When he opened the next present from his cousins he hugged it . . . or them . . . PAJAMAS WITH DINOSAURS. I am so grateful to be able to record these perfect, little, lives.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GEORGE !
