Avi woke up on the morning of his birthday to find that the birthday elves had put up two birthday banners. He and Itai were very interested in the Elmo banner. Avi tried to reach it while Itai wanted to be lifted up to give Elmo a kiss only to be set back down.
Poor Avi had to go to school on his birthday leaving Itai to prepare for the days celebrations. Don't you always put on your best heels for a party?
Itai got first dibs on the balloon. Once Avi came home from school there was much less love involved with the balloon. One balloon and two boys just doesn't work well.
What could be better than a balloon? How about a singing Elmo birthday card? Avi says thank you cousins, aunt and uncle for the card! (Itai says thanks too; he plays with it as often as he can steal it.)
And to top off the first celebration? Dinner with Savta and a piece of cake delivered with drums, tambourines and right in the middle of the meal! Yum, yum! One day of celebration down, two to go.
