Dear little Dusty is now two
And it was his birthday party at Russ and Suzy's place yesterday. There was a good rollup with about 12 adults and nine littlies present. One of Russ's friends brought along his 3 daughters, one of whom had red hair and green eyes. I liked her. She was pretty bold, too, which augurs well for her future. But there were plenty of blondie kids too, a couple being VERY blonde, with the paper-white skin that Joey had as a toddler. They all played well together, running around like mad things a lot of the time. It was great to see so many of them.
One thing a few of us noticed was that little Elise has rather brown skin. When Olivia was holding Elise the two seemed to have skin of the same colour. Olivia is Chinese. How the baby of a mother with freckles could have brown skin seems rather mysterious. Even Susan's mother is pretty fair. Yellow skin indicates jaundice so a few tests on Elise might be in order.
Paul was not his usual talkative self due to some drinking with Davey the night before. There was much talk of hangover cures -- with lemonade my recommendation. I mostly talked to Jenny.
Dusty's birthday cake was in the shape of a racing car -- with lots of red icing. He really enjoyed it, as you can see in the pic below. He once again deployed his favourite word: "More".
Russ as usual fed us well with BBQ sausages and lots of entrees.
