Birthday fun...

Yesterday we celebrated my sister, Stephanie's birthday.  She will be in Honduras, where she serves as a missionary, on the actual date so we wanted to bless her before she left.  In our home everyone gets to plan their own meal and choose their own cake.  Stephanie wanted meat loaf, mashed potatoes, peas, cooked carrots, salad and rolls.  She wanted strawberry shortcake for her cake.  These are things she doesn't have in Honduras. Stacy prepared the carrots and Shawna brought the strawberry shortcake. There were 14 of us and we had fun visiting during lunch. 

Opening gifts and reading cards always brings laughter!  Our family buys the funniest cards!  Ashlynn loved helping Aunt Stephanie with all her gifts.

Ashlynn loved helping blow out the candles on Stephanie's cake!

Happy early Birthday Stephanie!

We love you !
