The first family birthday to celebrate abroad. Jamison was in Texas as his grandfather is turning 101. I hope he had some fajitas to celebrate me, that's what I would have had if I had been home. Instead on a dreary day the kids and I stayed in our pajamas, watched movies and had chips and queso (Velveeta and Rotel I brought with me) for lunch. YUM! The sun did come out late afternoon and my wonderful friends here had a dinner and celebrated me!
I do have to note that before I went to the party, Catherine stopped by to give me a birthday run. She said that she knew with Jamison being out of town that I wouldn't get to run. She already knew me well enough to know I would want one. I was overwhelmed with how thoughtful her gift to me was. I got to get out and have a run! Glorious.
Then Colette and Sam graciously hosted a party for me for our home group. I so love the group. Every one looks out for one another and they wanted to make sure that I was celebrated. Sam got the croquet set out and taught my kids. He also built them a wigwam. Dinner was wonderful and my friend, Chrissie's daughter Lucy (Hope's friend) baked me a wonderful cake! It was so great to see everyone even though I didn't get an entire group picture. Thanks Amanda, Hannah, John, Collette, Sam, Chris, Chrissie and Kit for celebrating with me! I am blessed.
