For the first time in 19 years on this particular date, we didn't sneak up our stairs in our nightwears and with our hands full of birthday flags, into Anne-Sophie's room. We didn't sing the birthday song while she was waking up in bed - instead she heard our morning husky voices singing for her in her cell phone.
Later we will go to Anne-Sophie's and Tim's appartment for tea and birthday layer cake, and when it's time to have supper we will go to a Chinese restaurant. Anne-Sophie loves Chinese food (and so does Emil ).
So I'm getting ready to celebrate her. The presents - and LOTS of hugs - are waiting to be given away and now I only need to write the birthday card.
A very important thing...both Emil and Anne-Sophie place great emphasis on those cards. I know that they have all their birthday cards hidden in drawers and boxes, so it's with great pleasure that I write them.
Now the sun is shining beautifully on this snowy day - a very happy birthday to you my sweet, precious Anne-Sophie.
