10 years ago this very night....

I was surprised... with a 50th birthday party!!!  
(Wow, I was feeling so old then - little did I realize how young I was.)

It was after music team rehearsal in the auditorium... and somehow someone said I needed to go into the children's room at Bear Valley for some nebulous important reason.

I recently found these pictures.
Some of you are in them... you'll see.

Wonderful Jennifer Howes planned that whole surprise party.
We didn't get a good picture of her at the party.... but here's a picture around that time with some sweet young ladies who so looked up to her (and still do)....

Thank you, Jennifer!
I so enjoy reliving that big surprise!

(Don't you just love reliving wonderful memories?)
(They say it's good for your health.)

(No wonder I'm feeling so good.)

I loved planning that party for a wonderful woman. I have many fond memories of staff dinners around your table. Love and miss you.
