happy birthday amanda #40

Last evening,
in the midst of a raging thunderstorm
that left half of Savannah without power,
with granddaddy at home
recovering from a mean ole stomach bug,
we all pulled together to celebrate
Amanda's 40th birthday.

We gathered at La Parillo,
our favorite Mexican Restaurant
where they really know how to party.

The excitement level was through the roof
as we finished our tacos
and awaited the huge, bejewelled sombrero
to be placed on the honored's head.
The children could not contain themselves,
nor could the adults.

We hear them!!
The wait staff appears,
clapping and singing and working us up into a fevered pitch.
the birthday girl was sombreoed
and given a dessert!!!

We laughed till we cried...
so much fun!

Thankful for Amanda's birthday,
family together,
fun and laughter,
lots of chips and salsa.

"Every good gift and every perfect gift
 comes down from the Father of lights 
in whom there is no variation or shadow of turning."
James 1:17
