Birthday Man in China
The big boy in China is having a birthday today. He hates talking about his age, so I won't give it away...but it does go with lordy, lordy, someone is turning ____. You can tell him...I didn't tell you his age. :-)! It was kind of fun and weird for us to wish him a happy birthday yesterday, when his birthday is today. Well where he is it was already today!! We joke that this big birthday will really last for 36 hours instead of 24.
It's funny when I found out that he was going to China, my first reaction was that we weren't going to be together for his birthday. It's his first birthday in 23 years that we are not together. It makes me sad. But what a way to celebrate your birthday!
The kids and I stood around the computer and sang Happy Birthday to him and marveled that it was tomorrow there when it was still today here. The kids said they wanted to go to China for their birthdays because they last longer over there. They are so funny. Dahlia also told him not to worry if he doesn't have time to buy us anything because everything here says "made in China" God they crack me up! Note to Carmi...bring them something back from China!!! But don't listen to Zach...I don't want any real panda bears!
If you get a chance drop Carmi a line and wish him a happy birthday, too. I know how much he loves the friendships he has developed with all of you.
Carmi, I hope that this coming year brings you all that you are hoping and wishing for. I am so proud of all that you have accomplished and know that only good things will follow. Have a wonderful birthday my sweet. I love you and miss you and can't wait to see you when you get home.
