Happy 22nd!

So Elena wanted a birthday party with lights, hot yummy things, singing, and with a few friends. It was a hit!
At first it kinda seemed silly that Elena was planning her own party but it wasn't that big of a deal (plus, she knew exactly what she wanted).

Aunt Gaby and the birthday girl!
Our lovely Aunt Gaby and Grandma graced us with their presence and added a "specialness" to the party

As the sun begins to set, the lights come on!
Originally a ton of people had said they were coming, but sadly some of those people didn't end coming. And afterwards we remembered a bunch more people we had forgotten to invite (isn't that how it always is?). I guess we'll know for next time...

The night was chilly, but we had hot soup and beverages to warm your inside, as well as extra scarves and hats handy!

Getting ready to sing to Elena
After the majority of people had their fill of cake, we all moved into the living room and sang some hymns, then had a sweet moment of prayer.It was a good night.

Happy Birthday, Elena!
