happy birthday, joe

Joseph is our next-door neighbor. He and his parents have made us feel incredibly welcome in this neighborhood ever since we moved in last summer. Joseph is about nine months younger than Lucy, so he fits in well playing with our children. One day when he was out with us somewhere, I realized he technically could be our child, age-wise. (Scary when you think about how many kids you could have if you rolled the procreation dice Duggar-style.)

Anyway, Joe's birthday was last week. So on Saturday evening his family invited ours over for pizza and cake. It's kind of interesting because they are Seventh-Day Adventists, so they observe the Sabbath from sundown on Friday until sundown on Saturday. We, belonging to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, observe the Sabbath on Sunday. So we have a narrow window of party time on Saturday night! The kids had a lot of fun with Joseph. He's a great neighbor (and his parents are pretty cool too).
