Happy Birthday

It really is a funny feeling sometimes as your children age and actually catch up to you!! My youngest, Amy, just turned 30. It seems that not that long ago she was born and then hanging onto my leg and not letting me go when she entered the first grade. I had just gone back to work for a dentist and she promised she would sit like a good girl and look at books all day if I would let her stay in the dentist's waiting room. Shortly after that she settled in and actually loved first grade. That teacher wound up by being her favorite of all her school years. She learned cross-stitch and did a simple heart for her at the end of the year. We celebrated her birthday yesterday and had a good time. Here she is with me during a really fun evening.

"Happy Birthday to You", also known more simply as "Happy Birthday", is a traditional song that is sung to celebrate the anniversary of a person's birth. According to the 1998 Guinness Book of World Records, "Happy Birthday to You" is the most well recognized song in the English language, followed by "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" and "Auld Lang Syne".[1] The song's base lyrics have been translated into at least 18 languages.
