Last night I threw my parents an anniversary party with my sisters. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. I really enjoy throwing parties but especially when it's for people I love.

Susie also gave my parents a beautiful hand carved sandstone that one of her Navajo friends made. Their town is just south of Monument Valley which has the beautiful red sandstone buttes, which is what the carving depicts. It's so beautiful and I know my parents really love it and were thrilled that she came.
