We were able to go back to my family's farm in South Dakota on the 16th. The kids were excited to ride in the combine with grandpa and we had a little birthday celebration there with my family. Her birthday was Wednesday and I think everyone who Luella saw heard all about her turning six! I brought special birthday donuts to her classroom and Luella was so excited to share them. On Wednesday night she opened presents from us and Grandpa and Grandma Johnson, then we celebrated with pizza at Pizza Ranch. The real big fun happened on Saturday when Luella had a party with all of her friends... eleven of them! The theme was Tangled / Rapunzel and Luella had a terrific time!! I was concerned that a seizure might disrupt her day since she is right at the one month mark and is "due" for one. We are so thankful for all the extra prayers to get her through the day. It was so much fun to see her enjoying herself! This was her first "friend" party and her friends treated her royally! I wanted this birthday to be one that she always remembers and I think we made that happen. Now she's already talking about turning seven...
