II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Happy Birthday to You--Cha, Cha, Cha

My sweet baby is 2 now and what a fun day we had! We started the day out going to a parade, then we headed to Chuck-E-Cheese for his birthday party which was a lot of fun for everyone (even me for a change---usually I'm too preoccupied with being the hostess that I don't get to enjoy myself). Then it was home for a few hours so he could nap (and the girls could lay out) then we got cleaned up and went to the festival/carnival thing that is going on here. Matt and Brookyln rode the Ferris Wheel and Brooklyn rode a pony. Even though Grant was mezmerized by the ponies, we couldn't talk him into getting on one. I think there were just TOO many people and TOO many lights for him. As a matter of fact, uncharacteristically, he sat in the stroller the entire time we were there. (My back says thank you!) As lean as the little guy is, it is still hard to carry him around everywhere...and he is way to fast to put down in an environment like that where there are hundreds of people. He can be gone before I even notice he's moved. Anyway, I have to keep this short because it is really late and I am really exhausted...but I did want to explain the title of this post. This morning when he woke up, we sang Happy Birthday to him and Brooklyn added in "Cha, Cha, Cha" after each line, so it went "Happy Birthday to you-Cha, Cha, Cha. Happy Birthday to you-Cha, Cha, Cha. Happy Birthday dear Gra-nt, Happy Birthday to you-Cha, Cha Cha!" Then today at Chuck-E-Cheese, a lady was commenting on how cute he was and we told her that it was he turned 2 today. She said, "Oh! It's your birthday?" and he answered, "Cha, Cha, Cha!!" It was hilarious! As the day progressed, he picked up on the whole song and will glady serenade whoever is willing to listen! I hope I can get my video camera out and catch him doing it, because it is so adorable! Okay, well, that is all for tonight but I will post LOTS of pictures tomorrow. I am too tired to mess with all that tonight! later gators!
