My lovely granddaughter, Olive Noel Macy, turns three today at her home in Roeland Park, Kansas - a suburb of Kansas City. I wasn't able to go this year, but I was in Kansas City three years ago on the day she was born and got to meet Sweet Olive when she was just a few minutes old.
(When Olive turned six-months-old she was visiting me at my home on Okinawa. She has been quite the world traveler!)
Olive had her birthday party yesterday - a costume affair with dinner for the guests. Olive, like her grand-aunt, Gail, is a big fan of The Wizard of Oz, so she chose to be Glenda (the good witch) for her party. Her mother, Erin, was dressed as Dorothy. Tim sent me a beautiful email photo of the two of them in costume, and I have already picked up a couple of prints of it at our local Walgreen's.
Olive, I know you had a wonderful party yesterday and that your parents worked very hard to make your day special. I hope that you are having a really great day today as you turn three. Live it up - you only turn three once!
Watch out for falling houses!
Much love to you!
