Happy Birthday Leigh Anne!
Today (April 24th) is Leigh Anne's 25th birthday! The celebration included having a few friends over for dinner and a song fest. Rob and Anna were there and Rob brought his guitar and played. Margaret and her daughter, Mercy, are from Kenya and rode the train down from Sacramento. Mercy is receiving treatment at the Shriners' Burn Hospital. They have been in the United States for one year and may be here two more years. Father James, a Kenyan priest, and good friend of Doug and Leigh Anne's also came but was called away before the singing began. Leigh Anne and I had cooked, baked and cleaned on Friday so all was ready. Doug even had some cupcakes/candles to celebrate his birthday next Saturday (May 1).
Margaret and Mercy spent the night so they could go to church and a movie with Leigh Anne on Sunday. Leigh Anne will drive them back to Sacramento Sunday afternoon (with me tagging along). Doug is back in the "study mode" with finals coming up soon.
