Last Saturday we hosted a big birthday bash for Edda’s 9th birthday. It was an early open house from 9 am -1 pm where we served coffee, pancakes, bacon and sausage. We’ve wanted to do this for many, many years, based on the children’s book, Curious George Makes Pancakes. We tried to invite all the people in our immediate community and we probably had about 80-100 people show up for pancakes. Jeremy flipped about 200 to 250 pancakes made from scratch. I wish I took more pictures. My mom was the amazing bacon/sausage-meister. Edda! and Edda had the most fun of all, she was so social and so happy, a big smile on her face the whole morning and she would walk around leaning on the guests and smiling at them and told them herself with her smile that she was happy that they were there. The event was so heartwarming and special to me.
We asked that in lieu of gifts, for folks to make donations to RSRT to fund research for Rett Syndrome. I’m still adding together all the offline gifts, but I think we are well over $3,000 in donations. Here’s the link in case any of my 10 bloggy readers would like to donate:
