I had an awesome birthday on Wednesday. But how did I celebrate you ask? Well let me tell you…
Nicole woke me up at midnight to let me know it was my birthday. I didn’t stay up for long. But Nicole did. When I got up, I opened my door and found lots of balloons.
Nicole had been busy.
She had even left a few snacks out for me
Then she made me breakfast
And Klesti brought up his gift…at 8am
It was the sweetest gift:
3 pictures he colored, candies & 2 strawberries from his garden
Then Nicole & I went out for pizza & ice cream with a friend.
mmm ice cream!!
She got me a New Testament in Albanian!
I also got two videos for my birthday. One of Ensi saying I love you & singing happy birthday and the other written just for me & sung by Jacob. Talk about feeling special!
After English, Nicole, Jacob & I went down to the volga.
We started with coffee
Then had dinner & dessert.
Later that evening, we came back home. My Albanian mom came for a birthday visit and gave a gift. Then I skyped with my family. It was a great birthday! Yesterday, we had a cookout to celebrate May birthdays & Grace gave me this:
She painted it herself!
So that’s how I celebrated my birthday. Food, friends & fun!
