Happy Day Day!

You may recall Rudy really mastering the words to “Happy Birthday” last spring with our family’s string of four birthdays between February and May.  After all the birthdays were over, Rudy made the song appropriate for everyday singing by changing the words to “Happy Day Day to you.  Happy Day Day to you.  Happy Day Day to you-ooo!  Happy Day Day to you.”.  He’s been so diligent in wishing everyone a “Happy Day Day” in recent months, he had a hard time finding the right words to wish Olivia a “Happy Birthday” this morning!  🙂  He still couldn’t quite get it right by this evening but Olivia (aka IYA) felt well celebrated by his effort nonetheless…

It’s hard to believe our “little” girl is eleven.  We’ve had alot of fun celebrating her the past few days with a family dinner at a favorite local eatery on Friday night, a luau party with friends on Sunday and cupcakes with her class at school today!  My, oh, my!!    I remember being so thrilled the night she was born and we found out we had a girl…the perfect compliment to our two beautiful boys!!!  Rudy’s right…it was a happy day indeed! 🙂

A burger on the beach was Livy's choice for her family bday dinner!  Yum!

But wasn't too thrilled when  famed hula experts "Kiko and Bernice" crashed the party to lead the girls in a little hula dancing!!

We promised the boys (aka Kiko and Bernice) that we wouldn't post this pic on FB but Rudy's Beat is definitely fair game!!!

  1. Happy Birthday, Indeed! Can Olivia be 11 already? It is such a blessing to be able to watch you grow into a lovely young lady, Livy !! Rudy, you have a very special sister. I may be getting older–way older–but it is such a blessing to be able to watch you and your siblings grow and mature. I am SO proud of your family!

  2. I’m definitely hiring Kiko and Bernice for my next Hawaiian-themed party! Fun pics. Rudy seems to parallel my friend’s son Seth (same age) who just put a full pepper shaker into a washing machine loaded with white clothes the other day. A mess of black and white when those clothes were done with their cycle! See you soon!

  3. Thanks for sharing the family celebrations. You’ve got quite the family. Was this Kiko and Bernice’s first show or do they tour the Santa Barbara circuit? (I would have sworn I saw them doing a gig at The Cave or The Wildcat Lounge…)

  4. Livy made a good choice for burgers on the beach! Hope she never has to live away from one! Your older boys are just hilarious! They are also very brave.
