Most of our family have Winter-time Birthdays, congregated between the last days of November until mid-March. Toveli's was the final one of them....and she wanted to get her ears pierced. So, that's what she got.
It's helpful, because they can remind each other to clean them 3 times per day, and it alleviates some of the pressure from Mom to do the remembering (which stresses me out, because there are soooooo many things to try and remember).
On Saturday we had our best friends come down island to share a meal together.....but unfortunately I forgot to take photos!!! But we had a good time. The children went down to the river, walked to the 'gravel pit' (one of the 'visitors' named it that), walked their dog, ate too much, etc. Us adults shared our hearts, books, ideas, computer knowledge. We laughed and cried, and parted with hugs and "can they come back here tomorrow?" and wanting a date on the calendar of when we'd see them again.
Big sister, Rauchelle was here for the weekend too, but sadly had to go back today ;( We always hate to see her go, but then that just means we'll be Soooo excited when she comes back again ;)
Toveli says "It was crowded in the house, some of us sat on the front deck to eat supper. It was actually a really nice weekend. I enjoyed it!"
Happy Birthday, Toveli!
