Poor Crackers (aka my mom, Pam), has lost her birthday. Seven years ago Joe and I chose to get married on her birthday - June 27th. She was thrilled, and said that she was so happy to be getting Joe as a son-in-law for her birthday. She said that it was the best gift she could get. Well last year, Joe and I somehow managed to give her an even better birthday gift on June 27 - grandchildren! So poor Crackers has lost her birthday, but she says she is more than happy to hand it over to Charlie and Lily. This June 27th we'll be partying hard for Charlie and Lily, so we decided to celebrate Crackers' birthday tonight. We gathered at her house for cake (her favorite Fudgie the Whale) and presents. Charlie and Lily had a blast helping Crackers blow out her candles and tasting all her birthday cards (for some reason they love chewing on cards and envelopes). They even each had a tiny bite of vanilla ice cream. It was a fun evening! Happy Birthday, Crackers - Charlie and Lily love you!
