Here's the group admiring the beautiful cake (minus Albert, who is taking the picture)
Amber, Mark, Sara, Holly, Micah, and me
Looks like I'm going to get my wish!
After we ate and talked and talked. It was a lot of fun. Then Albert insisted that I open all my gifts a day early since he worked on Saturday. He gave me a nice watch that is solar powered -- getting your batteries replaced is so expensive that I always end up just buying a new watch, no more my friends! He also gave me a travel pillow for our trip to N. Carolina this weekend and a set of beautiful scriptures...just like I wanted...blue and silver with my new name engraved on them. Plus he had already given me a new set of pots and pans that are really nice.
