"They Say it's Your Birthday"..

...'Happy Birth-daa-ay to You"!
So goes my favorite 'Birthday Song' from one of the famous Fab Four...
Paul McCartney.  I've sent this rockin' little birthday greeting to many a friend over the years, via You Tube, just to make my point!  You can't help but get excited when you hear this!
'The Birthday Song'
You guessed it.  I'm a HUGE fan of birthday celebrations! 
Any time, any year, any AGE.  Just ask my family.  Ever since my babies were babies (!) I've created a different party each year to celebrate them on their special day, just like my own mother did for me when I was growing up. 
No two parties were ever the same at our house - not then, and not now. 
One of the most memorable parties I've ever seen, still remains with me today.
While I was in elementary school, my creative mother and artistic younger sister re-created the 'Wizard of Oz' backdrop, complete with a hand-painted 'Yellow Brick Road' (on brown paper sacks, of course) that led the party guests from the front door out to the back patio,  where stood an impressive cardboard 'Emerald City'! 
What a surprise for me and my friends.....and what FUN! 
    Over the years, I've created different celebrations, for my own children, some that have even rivaled my mother's creations, on occasion.  Those glorious milestones have been marked by everything from construction hard hats and a real motorized-riding dump truck, to a Barbie doll whose floor-length PINK gown was actually edible strawberry cake!
    We've celebrated inside and outside. On the beach and in the mountains.  By the pool, and in the park.  And with pinatas- almost always with pinatas!  We've even taken 30 fourth-graders (and several parents) to two state parks in one day! (Whew!)  Creating memories of a lifetime, much like the ones I remember as a kid.
    And like most children do, they grow up and so do their parties. Requiring fewer and fewer folks around the table while blowing out their endless flicker of candles.  Yet the day is always 'theirs', no matter how old they are.  Whether they're turning 'Sweet 16' (like me shown here) or 60, my belief is that a birthday should always be special enough to be remembered.
 It really should come as no surprise that I'm in the celebration business.  I guess I inherited that naturally. 
This past week, however, just happened to be MY birthday week, and what better way to celebrate my favorites, the three 'P's - Parties, People and Pink - then with my all-time favorite look-alike cover band- The 'BEATLES'!! (aka 'BeatleMania'). 
My gift to you is this video collection taken by my friend Wallace Craig, while the band was performing downtown the other night.  Hope you enjoy!

Cheers to another year, and no matter what the occasion...
