You CAN be there . . .

December 15th was the big day . . . Sullivan's first birthday. Since I had just been to visit Tracy, Tyson and Sullivan in November, I wasn't able to talk the hubster into springing for another plane ticket. Sigh . . . anyway . . . next best thing? . . . Skype ! ! !

Come party time I combed my hair, put on lipstick, a nice sweater to go with my pajama pants, booted up the computer and made my Skype call to the party. After greeting a few of the guests, Tracy and Tyson put me (their laptop) in the kitchen with a bird's eye view of the birthday boy so I could watch him dig into his smash cake. He could see and hear me as well.
After cake and refreshments, I was escorted into the livingroom to watch the birthday boy open his gifts.
Happy Birthday, Sullivan. Nana couldn't be there in person but via Skype, I saw and heard it all and Sullivan saw and heard me too. I even got to give Sullivan a hug and kiss by proxy. This one was from Nana. Thank you, Tracy!
