Bill and Elyse's birthday are just days apart. Bill loves keeping his birthday low-key. Having a daughter at the same time has further helped his cause. It was a beautiful September evening and Elyse and I had made Daddy a birthday cookie earlier that day. I was inside getting dinner ready and Elyse was happily playing outside. Bill poked his head in and said, "You have to come look at this..."
She'd found the bucket of bubbles from her birthday party and decided Libby was dirty. Poor ol' Libby is such a trooper.
