Sunday was Old Lady Mary's birthday, so we were all set today in our special birthday celebration duds and with a giant balloon in hand. However, a strong gust of wind blew just as we were exiting the car with the balloon, and it soared heavenward. $9.99 and years of endless delight: LOST. Mary keeps all her balloons and tapes them to her wall once they've flattened. We're going to do our best to draw her a big picture of the balloon so she'll still have something to tape up. I can't afford to have another $9.99 float away.

Still, we looked pretty nice, didn't we? These outfits left Mary thinking that we have giant closets full of clothes so that we never have to wear the same thing twice. Zinashi sang Happy Birthday three times, and then we each did a little birthday dance, followed by a presentation of a pack of Reese's peanut butter cups. This did not keep Mary from thinking she'd had a terrible week (again, as usual), but it distracted her enough to help us get out the door and head home for lunch. Good enough.
