Anna's Birthday

Anna's 8th birthday anniversary was yesterday. Everyone was there just as we had been when she was born. You see Anna was the first of her generation and we were all so excited and happy about her arrival. I remember well that Nana was on an earlier flight and I went to Austin later to be 'just in time' for the birth. However, I couldn't find the hospital and when I finally got there- all flustered- the baby was born 2 minutes before my arrival.

I'm pretty sure we've been at every birthday since. It is always a great event with Anthony making spectacular theme cakes and Jennifer coming up with pony rides or wild assed games for the kids. This year was very successful and there was a huge turnout. The theme for the party was Star Wars and there was lots of screaming and make-believe fencing using 'lightsaber' swords a la Star Wars.

Here's Anna's cake........
And here are some of the action shots covering the activities....




Happy Birthday to you Anna....

Funny how you have the patience to do all that video'ing and uploading and blogging. Getting pretty mellow in your "old age", Grandad. I'm impressed. Hope you got that microwave working and your workout squeezed into this Monday morning. Sheesh, retirement is busy!

Haven't quite given up on the microwave yet.
It is definitely frustrating me though. I've had it apart and back together, switched the new one with the replacement numerous times but I still cannot make the ribbon contact strip engage properly.
I wish Noel or Anth was here........
