Happy Birthday George !

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 !

journal entry:

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.
