My birthday was three days after Claire's (here) so we had another celebration rolled out while getting to soak up Max that extra week.
Claire got welcomed into Young Women in church:
Dave whipped up an awesome dinner...
So fun to be able to share that with my brother and his family before they had to take off on their next adventure. We were pretty sad to have them leave...these two were especially sad to have to separate :(
It was like groundhog day from Claire's big day a few days before, except Elle was missing for some reason or another...
Our dear friends we met in China brought me over some Romanian cake.
...and as we watched a family movie and I got my feet and back rubbed from everyone (so nice), our neighbors came over with their own birthday wishes:
They even played the wishes for me on the piano.
My kids all presented me with sweet kind notes at breakfast. Claire's was a whole coupon book (which I'm sure she will follow up on and really do:)
Oh I'm sure glad this girl can spot beauty with those beauty-blue eyes of hers right now and share the wonder of it all with me.
It was a great day.
