That’s right baby. Brandon turned 30 this week.
Seeing as how I just love birthdays-I am a huge fan of the birthday week-so I had to make sure that happened for Brandon. He’s not so much a birthday celebrator (I just don’t understand you people) so it was a tough balancing act. I mean, you have to do up big for the big 3-0 ! But living here makes it a little harder to fun stuff, get good gifts, party party.
Don’t worry I had some help. First, we had a team here and they packed in all sorts of goodies to help us celebrate. A little bird (aka Janet who came on a trip just a week before them-photos still to come-I’m so behind having been sick with Maleria!!) had me write up a ‘wish list’ of stuff for this team to bring in. She and another sweet girl went out and bought all sorts of things for him-candles, balloons, streamers, presents, (even a card for me to give him!!) They were so thoughtful, and it made it so fun to be able to spoil him on his special day!
He started the day off with some homemade cinnamon rolls. And yes everyone sang to him which was awesome.
Manette got in on the fun too. I told her it was his birthday and she had some surprises of her own! One was a special fruit salad that has some authentic Haitian flavor to it!
Don’t worry, more birthday photos to come. We had more birthday celebrations all week long!
And, more photos from the last team, this team, and all in between! I’m back, not sick anymore and malaria is hopefully gone forever.. so watch out, here come the blogs!!
