There are many "first" celebrations in a humans life. So here is to Karis' and her first half birthday. Will she have a half birthday party every year? Heck no, but it just so happened that her half birthday landed during our Thanksgiving vacation in California. So why not enjoy some half pies for a half birthday with all your besties?
We rented a space in McKinley Park right next to Sacramento's beautiful rose garden. Both friends and family came out to get together, enjoy some pie, coffee, and a beautiful day in the park. Karis is LOVED by so many amazing people that she does not get to see on a daily basis. I plan to make a huge effort every year to come home and allow her to build her own special relationships with the people I love most. A huge thank you to my family and all of my friends for taking the time to love on us and pray for us even when we live so far away.
