Happy 1st Birthday, Joela!   2 comments

On January 11, Joela celebrated a fun first birthday. I can´t believe just a year ago, I was so excited for her to be born and now she´s walking! She brings Josué and me joy every day!

Josué´s family threw a party for her, inviting relatives and friends. They had saved for one year and worked hard all day yesterday decorating, cooking, and preparing. Daniel took off work to lead the games with the kids.  We had a poster made of Joela, marking each month of this past year. The giant heart made of balloons, the piñata, and the cakes made the party shine, as did the birthday girl in her white dress. In the piñata was flour, confetti, and candy, so it really made a mess! Joela blew out candles (but she ate Josué´s homemade banana bread), hit the piñata open, and opened presents. She loved the attention and the gifts.
