This is a little late. Haley had her first birthday. Wuhoo! I spent about 45 minutes decorating even though we only had one guest. What are you gonna do. I had fun. Haley was a little intimidated by all the decorations- she kept looking at them and crying so we had to move the party inside. She got some fabulous gifts. I think I might have been more excited about her gifts than she was. I'm pretty sure she just wanted to play with the box- one of which makes a great walker. Also, I got accepted to play a song at Hartwood acres Sunday (big big outdoor stage drawing the likes of such well known singers as Traci Chapman and Josh Ritter) It's part of a local musicians night and I'm super excited. Not sure if I will be able to have as much fun as I do playing in my living room by myself but I will try... but not too hard, right..you don't want to over try, or under try, which would be detrimental to the over all success of the...oh I should probably just stop thinking too much about it.
