First: Happy [early] Birthday to my DADDY! His birthday is tomorrow and I am ever so proud of my dad.

He rocks.
That is him, tired and weary at the hospital holding his grand-daughter as she was kept alive before her surgery.

He rocks.

In other birthday news! The kiddos are having a birthday party together:

I am so proud of that invitation, you have no idea.

I made it entirely from pictures and digital scans of scrap paper and ribbons. The blotted out portions tell you that if you want to come you can comment and I'll give you details in some way that is not quite so public.

**also: my twitter feed appears terribly broken. If you have any idea why, please comment! Much appreciated**

** Also, redux: *facepalm* I cannot believe I made a mistake like that on the date. If only I'd noticed BEFORE I had them printed. I will have to decide if the mistake is worth the $4 to have them reprinted. That should read Thursday, July 2nd 2009
