Allison turns 22!

F33A5C3E-9349-4AB9-874F-ABBC36104FB8 Allison had a Covid party.  Yes.  We are all officially in quarantine but decided to celebrate her special day with a cake outside.  Special cake delivery by her favorite uncle and Auntie made it extra special.  She loved seeing Abigail and Charis!   63D543D0-5BDD-4420-9E98-41F9B3447936 455AC70F-330A-448A-B600-F39391BBDD40
Love this picture of Allison and her pretty smile.  I can't believe she is already 22 years old.  She will be graduating from college in a month and she is going forward with her education this fall in Loma Linda.  She is excited to announce that she will be in the master's program studying Speech-Language.  She is a joy and I thank God for giving me such a wonderful daughter to love.  She is a perfect combination of mom and dad.    What a treat it was for us to spend this birthday at home with friends.  She would have been in Loma Linda but due to Covid-19, she came home.  She came to a realization during this time at home, that she really loves being at home.  She's not such a social butterfly.  She's a homebody too!

Summer of 89, I returned back to US after a year in Korea as a student missionary.  I was not allowed to spend a night in Honolulu at ENK's house so I spent 12 hours with him on my way home from Korean to LAX.  ENK took me out to a nice dinner at the Royal Hawaiian and took me to the airport.  Ah, the 80's....  


Chocolate chip cookies anyone?

Lindsey and Allison likes to bake.  Not me.  I make my one or two things and that's it.   When ENK wanted something sweet....  I told him that the girls are not even here!  They are no longer home to bake muffins, cookies, cakes etc...  I just had to look up a recipe for crispy cookies and baked 2 dozen!  Overall, I think it turned out okay.
