We celebrated the rest of the July birthdays at a fun party this evening. Alyse has had a great birthday week starting last Thurs. with a dinner with girl friends. Then Friday I took her for a birthday lunch and some birthday shopping and she got to have dinner with a mission companion and a woman they worked with in the mission field who is in town visiting. Sat. she spent the day with her boyfriends family who is in town visiting. Today was her family party. Tomorrow her boyfriend has a special day of birthday fun planned for her. Lucky girl! Alyse likes theme birthday parties and we have all been princesses, pirates, cowboys, Hawaiians etc. This year her party theme was Masquerade. She shared her party with our oldest granddaughter. She asked everyone to wear black and white and we provided the masks for everyone. My grand-kids cracked me up they were so excited about the masks. When they wore them they really thought you couldn't recognize them. It was so cute! We had a fun time.
