On Tuesday, our oldest daughter turns twenty. Since Jim and I will be in Frankfurt that day en route to Africa and Anna will be in New Orleans, we are celebrating her a few days early.
Tonight, with the help of our missionary neighbors, we threw a birthday party complete with a yummy supper, some dancing, lots of laughter, several gifts, a time to do "give 20 adjectives to describe Anna" as we'll as "20 favorite memories about Anna", and a Star Wars movie to complete the evening.
It wasn't the fanciest of parties, but it was definitely one of the nicest of Saturdays. But then, how could it be anything less with such a high-quality young woman to honor.
