A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Julie's 16th birthday. (I am so behind in my blogging this summer!)
(She also had a fabulous birthday party, in addition to our traditional family celebration, and I will blog about that another day!)
The Family Day
Jimmy was unable to get off work for Julie's birthday, so we stretched her celebrating over more than one day. The night before her birthday, we took her out to dinner at our local Indian restaurant. Delicious!
The night of her actual birthday my parents came for an overnight visit. We were so happy to have them here for the birthday celebration! We enjoyed a birthday supper and dessert and present opening.

a gift from Mama and Daddy (a new Bible with her name on it)

The next morning we all enjoyed a birthday breakfast together, and then we began getting everything ready for the party.
