Getting Ready for a Birthday Party

Posted by on Aug 21, 2010 in community, fellowship, personal | 1 comment

As I mentioned in a few of my Ethiopia itinerary posts, I missed my daughter’s, Miranda’s, birthday because it was my last day in Ethiopia. (I drank a soft drink called Mirinda in her honor that day.)

Miranda and her friend Lindsay decided to have a joint birthday party between their two birthdays to celebrate. That joint birthday party is today, and I’m certainly NOT going to miss THIS!

They have a big day planned. They’ve invited over forty of their friends. They’ve asked some people to plan some games for everyone. Everyone will eat pizza and cupcakes. Then, when it gets dark, we’re all going to watch a movie outside using a projector that they’ve borrowed.

Yesterday, while we were getting ready for the party, we had to test the cupcakes and the projector outside. It was so much fun hanging out with our friends and getting ready for the party. It was almost a party getting ready for the party!

Anyway, I wish we could invite all of you to join us today. I think it will be a great day to celebrate these two young ladies.
