Happy Birthday, Elder Reed!

Last Saturday Elder Reed turned 39! We are so glad he is getting younger ever year! Valary and Natalia, whom we have visited and had over for dinner (from the Cold Mountain Branch), invited us to see the ballet, Swan Lake, to celebrate his birthday. We had them over for dinner before the ballet along with our translator. They are such fun to be with even though we have to communicate through a translator. The ballet was beautiful. We are so thankful that senior missionaries are encouraged to go to these kind of events as we serve our missions. We are enjoying these wonderful uplifting productions.

    Hee! Hee! Today is my 38th birthday. Amazing how the age difference is narrowing as you serve your missions. :D Love the picture with the scepter. And nesting dolls are one of my favorites! :)

    Happy (belated) Birthday to YOU too. That sounds like a great plan (especially on your end)! :D
