but in the end... it wasn't the neighbors... it was a room full of julton's family and many friends also, cake and candles and soda. i was so surprised that i nearly jumped back into the bedroom! there i was PJs and all in a room full of friends that were singing happy birthday and taking lots of pictures. what was there to do? nothing but join in, and let it happen. i dont think it would have gone over well if i had asked them if they could possibly come the next night, when i was a little better...
so, that's how my birthday began... with a cake and friends... and ended the same also the next night, with another cake and friends... all in all a pretty good way to spend a birthday. (with a pretty great lunch thrown in the middle, we had a lunch at church on Sunday to celebrate Reformation day, all the cell groups made different dishes and we all shared... yum)
(with Natali, and my alfajore (cookie) cake still a little sick on sunday...)
and to finish off an excellent weekend, we, with jultons sisters and our friend kenedy, took their grandparents out to dine on KFC ( don't get much of that in the jungle.... and its fun to watch them watch everyone eat with their hands in amusement) and... we found the Tomanguillo/Chumbe/Rogers/Paima-Adams Family! :D
