Happy Birthday Karen

Happy Birthday Beautiful Karen. So many people love you. And now we have the capacity to do a big family circle reviewing why. I'll start:
1. She loves the kids.
2. She's forgiven me seven times seventy.
3. She took great care of dad.
4. She gives fabulous reports.

Have a happy happy birthday Karen. We love you very much.

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I love you so much.
Here are just a few of the things I love about Karen to add to the list.
1. Her wonderful red hair.
2. Her voice—whether talking or singing.
3. She is good at sharing, especially her books and teddy bears.
4. She is Aunty Safety because she loves us all too much to have anything happen to us.
5. She has been nurturing me since before I can remember.

Oh yeah. And she came all the way to Hawaii to be at my sealing, which meant so much to me. Thank you.

"Karen it's your birthday. Happy Birthday Karen." I love you so much too. I love all of the things that Pam and Sienna said and I love the picture of you and Gio. I loved that flight where you walked the aisles with Gio. I wish I had you for my permanent flying buddy.
1. I love that Karen knew me and remembers when I was two.
2. I love that she had an impromptu birthday party for me at Grandpa and Mimi's and invited everyone over, had cake and ice cream, and did a circle for me. It was really nostalgic and fun.
3. I love that she takes good care of Gio when we're around (keeping him hydrated with juice bars which he loves).
4. I love going on walks around the block with her and saying hi to everyone we pass and learning about the houses and the people on the block.
5. I love that she makes it a priority to take us swimming when we come over. I love auntie floaty.
6. I love her piano playing and singing. We had so much fun singing up at the DeMartini's (Danny and Nancy can't stop raving about you) with your accompaniment. And I love hearing you play for the ballet.
7. I love that you love bananas as much as Danny does. He used to eat a bunch a day for lunch in high school.
I love you.
Love, Kaity

Those couple days before our move to Santa Cruz where we stayed with Karen and Mimi will forever be in my heart. I felt so much love! Karen has treated me as if I have always been a memeber of the family. She makes an effort to spend time with Enzo when we are there and will always stay by his side when he's scared to touch the cats. It's a small gesture that means so much to me as a mom. She is a great planner and has so much love for everyone. I love that she makes up songs and isn't afraid to sing them. Karen, I really love you!

Minami says, I like Karen because she bought playdough for us. Mikey says, she let me watch cartoons.

Happy Birthday
I loved reading everyones comments and remembering all of my good memories in Sacramento with you, from our cat Blackberry when I was five or six all the way up to your walks with Enzo at our last visit. You're the greatest and I'm so glad we get to live close to you and see you more often and Enzo gets to hang out with you. We love you a lot.
