lightning bugs and leah

May I have your attention, please? I have a very important announcement to make.Today is the birthday of my girl Leah ! She told me all I've been doing is talking about birthdays and not to mention hers, but I am free to do as I please. It's not my fault that everybody has birthdays at the same time in our family. So happy birthday, Leah!
She is so special that even bugs are celebrating! Do you see them? They are flitting here and there, lighting the sky with happy thoughts of Leah.


I'm going to catch one for her! There is a lot of protein in these little things.
Leah prefers caffeine over protein, though, so I'll eat the bugs and let her drink the latte and not beg for too many ice cubes ~~~ but let me tell you, that will be hard.

Love ya, birthday girl!

We hope that Leah had a wonderful birthday! We are sure she did since she had you to celebrate with Petra.
Our mom says she hasn't seen any fire flies around here since she was a young girl. That was like forever ago, ha! ha!

Happy Birthday to lovely Leah. You were working very hard to get one of those bugs. It would have been the best present ever.

I am sure Leah would prefer the caffeine to the bug but the bug would have been a lovely gift.

I've never seen one of those lightening bugs but watching your video I know they are pawesome!
