We had the big party on Saturday, so just a little tiny one yesterday.
It was fun.
Here's the gecko, doing well.
There he is, tiny and sweet.
And here's Lydia--we had cheesecake because she loves it.
Kari, Kari, Kari. Karinka Doodle, mine baby Schnoodle--here you are getting so grown up. Next year: SCHOOOOL!! Exciting. I hope you love it. I hope fourteen is a wonderful year.
All the fun we've had with you in the family--truly, there are a LOT of old Kari stories. Thanks for being ours--our kid, our sister, our buddy. Obviously the whole family would be severely lacking without you.
Lucky us, having you. Happy Birthday, love Mom and Dad and Everybody
