You have already read of Ben, Mary and their help with the refugees; the next item on the agenda was Shauna's birthday, so here we go ...
|JJ is designing a card for his mother.
|The cake came in the form of a yule log.
|As Mom prepared to blow out the candles, Danica beat her to it, which she thought was quite hilarious.
|A family snap from around the table.
|Gift time: Shauna laughs over the gift. She had somewhat cheekily suggested that Grandma crochet her a candy cane afghan, which would be a monumental undertaking. So, Grandma has actually begun although it may not be completed until next birthday.
