Oh there was cake...

Most November 28ths of my life have been spent with this guy...

...celebrating his birthdays. And although this year he wasn't with us, don't you worry, folks-there was celebrating in TN! The birthday card I sent him in South Africa said that we'd bake a we did!
...And this girl never even knew that the reason for our celebrating was on the other side of the world!

Joey, oh how we miss you! We miss your funny, funny stories, we miss your big, fun spirit, we miss your wisdom and we miss seeing you all the time. I am so proud of you- you have always been one of the strongest leaders in my life, and it does not surprise me one bit that God has called YOU to South Africa to lead those precious people there. I pray for you daily and I love you so much. I hope your birthday was the MOST special one yet...and can't wait until we're together again to celebrate many more!

PS...the cake was STRAWBERRY...your fave! :)
