Hugh was joined by all of his dad, mom, sister, and nanny to celebrate his school birthday on his actual birth day. If only we could have had Nora, his dog, the family dog join us too! Hugh's dad and mom read us Hugh's favorite book, What the Ladybird Heard. Then his sister presented a slide show that she put together featuring Hugh from birth to now, age four, represented by a candid shot taken from her position on the couch. After this we followed our usual process of sharing the committee work and presenting the gift. Ended with Hugh walking around the candle, all of us clapping once the flame was wishfully blown out, and then merrily singing the "Happy Birthday" song in chorus.
Another book is given to the collection: Rosie
