birthday party!

St. Mary Kevin knows how to put on a party, I must say! The festivities started at 2:30 and didn't end until 7:15. There were fantastic decorations, amazing dancing and musical performances, speeches by many people (including a few political dignitaries), a delicious dinner, cake, lots of singing and gift giving. Our recent college graduates were honored, too. Even some of my jaja friends (grandmothers) from the village showed up! It was a proud and very fun day for this Mama G.
