"Happy Birthday to You"

This post was supposed to have been posted on Saturday... In attempt to upload video, it froze and refused to thaw out... Until now.....

The past two days were devoted specifically to our little one. Thursday was her birthday, and for most of the day it was just me and her sitting at home feeling my "morning" sickness. Jobi had to be in town all day that day in classes and exams and everything, so it was up to me to make sure Almonds was having a good birthday. Needless to say, she wasn't having any fun and spent a good amount of time crying to me about it.

Luckily we had to go to the chiropractor, so I packed us up into the car, loaded up on snacks and water for the both of us, and braved the trip to Kaneohe. The drive down Kam Hwy on the windward side is bad enough if you aren't sick, but if you are and you're the driver, you end up saying lots of prayers. And thank goodness for prayers, because Almonds and I made it safely to Kaneohe and Jobi, without me throwing up and everything. We had an extra hour before seeing the chiropractor, so I begged Jobi to let us eat somewhere before I pass out. So we went to Farrell's in the mall:

And because it was her birthday, they blew a big horn and the whole restaurant sang "Happy Birthday" to her. Here is her first birthday ice cream:

After we ate there, we had a little bit of time, so we walked around the mall... and guess who we ran into!

For those of you who don't know, it's my oldest brother and his family. He and his wife don't really like being in pictures, so I took of their kids with Almonds. And while she was playing with them in the play center...

Jobi went into Borders to read a book.

So thankfully, her day ended well, and we threw a huge party for her the next day. (Don't even get me started on THAT!!!)
