An amazing treat on my birthday!
Actually, I got a few treats on my birthday! The first was from my husband who let me buy a nice little china cabinet at the Northern Store sale. It now holds our little collection of carvings. Then last night (my birthday) we had a spectacular thunder and lightning show! This is only the second time we have had a storm like that since we got here 15 months ago. The next treat was all of the people who showed up for my birthday bbq! I needed a good excuse to get everyone together. Then the final treat was unbelievable! A friend made me a birthday cake that was out of this world! She made me a muskox cake! The pictures don't do it justice! We are really blessed with the friends that we have here. Another friend of ours put it very well- he said that we all have relatives, but up here, the people that we surround ourselves with- are our family. I liked that.
