Unfortunately, she had about three minutes to eat it, before she and Tiffany rushed out the door for school! (In fact, she left so quickly, that she forgot her lunch!) Amber is student teaching at the school where Tiffany teaches and where Joe goes.
That night after church, we stuck some candles in her favorite turtle brownies and sang Happy Birthday to her at the top of our lungs, first in English . . .
and then in Chinese!!!! :)
Then, Amber opened her present from her Mom -- a Kindle Fire!!! (Is it OK to admit here that I'm jealous??) ;)
I hope she had a good birthday, even though she is hundreds of miles away from home . . .
There was more fun and celebrating on Thursday night . . . check back tomorrow to read about that and see more pictures!!!
