Today is Malia's Birthday, but we had her (first birthday party ever) birthday party yesterday. It did not start out so well but she was a trooper and enjoyed herself. It started out Friday night about 12:00 P.M. She woke up crying, so Gary went over and got her and brought her to our room and about 4 minuets after she was in our bed she started crying again and then threw up all over the bed and us. Argh! So we get up clean everything up and give hugs. We noticed that she felt really warm and it turned out she had a 104 temp ! Yikes, this is how my illness started out a few weeks ago. We gave her some Motrin and then we all went back to sleep. We woke up around 7:00 and she was still pretty warm so I gave her a tepid bath and Tylenol, that made her cool down a lot and she pretty much stayed that way all day. I cant believe that she was sick for her birthday ! She has never thrown up since we had her, its just weird

Dylan and Leigh got this neat Play-doh kit.

It's all about Elmo or Momo as Malia would say.

Grandparents always give the BEST presents

Nana got me really cool Elmo things!

Even Lola had a great time.

She tried soooooo hard not to smile when we sang Happy Birthday to her.

After the cake we all went out for a swim.

I have 3 butterfly bushes in the pool area, they really do draw in the butterflies.
