I am terrible with dates. It's embarrassing. I never know if Georgia's Mom's anniversary is on the 11th or the 12th, so I normally call whichever day it is NOT. Of course. I know Mikkee's birthday only because it is a national holiday. Is Aubrey's birthday the 14th or the 16th? Isn't Mary's sometime in early December? And Carrie, Janet, and Laurie, who all have birthdays in the same week - I don't even attempt to pretend I remember what day belongs to whom. So it is with much humility that I admit either Elizabeth - my dear dear friend, and Silas' godmother - had a birthday yesterday, or has a birthday today. I really can't be sure. I definitely remember a Birthday Dinner one year on this day, but I can't remember if that was on her actual birthday or not. So. Happy birthday Elizabeth! We love you even if I don't know exactly when to post this.
These are my most recent pictures of Elizabeth. See that Very Young Small Early (and so very cute) Asher she's holding? That's how long it's been since I've seen Elizabeth. Sadly. BUT - she will be home in December, and we already have a trip planned for January. Praise Jesus (seriously) for the internet. Through the miracle of modern technology, I talk to Elizabeth as much now as I did when we lived in the same town.
So. Happy Birthday. We love you, we hope your second birthday in Hong Kong is more fun than your first (or was, if it's already happened), and we're excited that you will be closer to home very soon.
