Our family birthdays are obnoxious!

There are 5 of us kids.  4 of us have kids of our own.  In total there are 6 grandkids.  The oldest, Ryan, is seventeen although no one in my family will claim they are old enough to have a 17 year old. 

Ok, fine.

He's mine. 

So we've had a lot of birthdays over the years and I don't remember when it started, the cha-cha-cha.  I even think I've written about the cha-cha-cha before.  But I don't remember that for sure either.  It sucks getting old.  Anyway...

In our family we always get together to have a family dinner and cake and celebrate the person having a birthday.  Pretty normal.  But when it comes to singing happy birthday we get all crazy.  We get...obnoxious.  We sing the traditional birthday song but add a huge CHA-CHA-CHA to it. And we're really LOUD.  And we drag it out.  A lot.  Today is nephew Mason's birthday. 

Happy birthday to you CHA-CHA-CHA
Happy birthday to you CHA-CHA-CHA
Happy birthday dear Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssssssssssssssssssssssssssoooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Haaaaappppyyy birthdaaaaaay toooooo yoooouuuuu.

See, obnoxious for good.  Not for evil.

If someone in my family didn't get the cha-cha-cha treatment for their birthday, they would probably feel let down and disappointed and possibly unloved. Ha, I kid.  Kind of.  And this is not exclusive to the kids, either. 

It's very hard to go to a "normal" birthday and not cha-cha-cha somebody.  It's a bit awkward when you accidentally do. 

Ahh, well.  There are more obnoxious things in life! :0)
