June 24th - I (the BABY of the family) turned 30!!!!!!! YIKES!! It seemed ok when Chad (my brother) turned 30, fine when Jason turned 30, then Silena, but ME - the BABY - that scares everyone!! The baby should never turn 30 - she should always remain the baby! But it happens. Even the baby will turn 30! And it wasn't so bad!
Delilah had a GREAT idea to celebrate. She had heard of a game, "Murder Mystery Party" and convinced me we had to do one. I found a Luau one that looked very entertaining. And boy...was it entertaining. Each person that came was assigned a part about a week before the party. And the parts fit each person PERFECTLY! It really surprised me! A few people really should have got an award for going above and beyond - in costume and in their acting ability. Sandra...NO PROBLEM finding people for the Christmas play - people have been holding out on you!! I thought I was the drama queen at the church - OH NO!! I was outdone by a few drama KINGS who may have missed their calling in life!!
I had a GREAT time playing this game and visiting with friends. I must say - Jae and David won the "Faithful Friend" award. They drove all the way out from Remlap with TWINS to come celebrate with us and they basically knew NO ONE. Not sure it was so much worth it for them - but my heart was overwhelmed and thrilled to see them! All 4 of them! Y'all are TROOPERS! I was so thrilled that everyone came out and then to play this silly game and spend a night with us put me on cloud nine.
BUT...these people don't do the status quo - I was turning 30 and they decided to go above and beyond. They wanted it to be memorable! Well, that's just what it was. About 30 people from the church pitched in and got me a (brace yourselves) MAC BOOK PRO, IPOD TOUCH, a PRINTER to print my pictures, then other friends and family got me - scrapbook, candle, giftcards, money, a facial, cards, etc. I was shocked...SHOCKED I SAY!!! SHOCKED! It was so fun and definitely a night I will always remember! THANK YOU FRIENDS!! Near and FAR...You mean the world to me!!
