A special day for a small girl
It's been one year with Sayuri and even though she's our smallest family member, she has impacted our lives in a very big way!
Before we see her big celebration, Rei has put together some of our memories together!
Sayuri's first appearance.
Don't be fooled by that cute face.
One of Sayuri's favorite hobbies is drawing. She thinks she is much better than Rei!
Sayuri especially loves getting her picture taken!!
Her first little friend, cthulu!
One of my favorite pictures of her...such a sweet Sayuri!
The first attempt at making clothes for her!
Our first vacation together. Here's Sayuri in Iowa!
Second attempt at clothes for her! Afterwards she had a pajama party!
Sayuri tries to do her summer homework...but she can't write a thing!
Climbing a tree at the Japanese friendship garden!
Getting hugged by Rei! So sweet!
Family portrait for Thanksgiving!
Sayuri's first (physical) encounter with Mikila.
Sayuri enjoys her first Christmas!
However, Mikila and Sayuri are always fighting over toys!
Sayuri gets her name from the Kanon character named Sayuri. ^^
Sayuri loves playing with her toys most of all!
Being small never stops her!
Although it's easy to pick her up!
Thank you again Cazzie for this wonderful gift! She loves it!
Sayuri and Mikila are always fighting!
At her first PHXCC she's already wanting beer. ^^;
And now here she is today...
Sayuri: Thank you everyone for being here.
Sayuri: You are all my dearest friends! Aren't you glad you came to the birthday event of the year?
Sayuri: What? Can't you see I'm busy here?
Mikila: You're dressed really cutely! Is it a special occasion?
Sayuri: Why yes. I am wearing this gift from Uncle Cryx.
Mikila: Ooo! Let me guess!
Mikila: It's NATIONAL DONUT DAY!!
Mikila: Eh? It isn't that?
Mikila: What could it be...?
Mikila: Hmmm...I have no idea!! You just felt like it?
Sayuri: Just get out of here you baka before I hit you with a Sakura beam!
Mikila: Okay! I'm going~
Sayuri: *sniff sniff* no one remembered my birthday...
Me: Rei...how are you feeling?
Rei: Nnn... a little better from yesterday I guess.
Me: Your fever seems to have gone down a little bit, but you have to stay in bed.
Rei: Poor Sayuri. Today is her birthday and she probably thinks everyone forgot...
Mikila: Sorry to intrude...Is Rei doing alright?
Rei: Yes I'm doing better thanks for checking on me. ^^
Mikila: Oh thank goodness.
Me: Mikila, I thought you were off playing with Sayuri?
Mikila: She got upset at me... Apparently I forgot something very--
Rei: *shiver* Uuu~ It hurts.
Mikila: Rei!! Are you okay? You need to rest.
Rei: It's okay...
Rei: Please give these gifts to Sayuri so she doesn't think I forgot. I wish I could have given them to her myself.
Rei: Please...Mikila...do me a favor.
Mikila: Of course! Anything, oneechan!
Sayuri: Time to open!
Mikila: Awww! Hugs for you too!
Sayuri: ...umm...Thank you, Rei!!
Rei: ...awww... It's weird to see this gratitude out of you, Sayuri.
Sayuri: Hmph, don't get used to it.
Sayuri: Look at all these presents, Cthulu!!
Sayuri: Hello, Rei. We're having my party in your bed.
Rei: Yay... I don't have to miss it!
Sayuri: *sniff* *sniff*
Cthulu: ... ...
Rei: It's her birthday today.
Mikila: EH?! I didn't know that...I'll give them to her right away!
Mikila: Please forgive me, Sayuri-chan. I didn't know it was your birthday today....
Sayuri: I don't believe this...how could you get all these presents so fast?
Mikila: Well...they're from Rei...
Sayuri: Let's go over to her and have the party. No sense in having one if the only one who cares doesn't show up.
Sayuri: Rei!! Thank you for all these great gifts. ^^
This was the best birthday ever!!
BUT WHERE'S MY CAKE?!
