SURPRISE!! Happy Birthday!

Our Eagan friends, Steven and Allison, hosted the SURPRISE birthday party for my wife, Anne, at their house on pre-Autumn like Saturday, August 29. Many friends gathered for a potluck, picnic barbeque style backyard party! We even watched a DVD about Anne made by her sister-in-law, Denise. Allison held a drink while Ann held Anne's arm. Ann, the other sister-in-law, missed this photo!

    Happy birthday, Anne! I like the crown on your head!

    Nice to have good family and friends. Especially during those long, cold, Minnesota winters!

  16. Dear Leif,
    Happy birthday and best wishes to your wife - Anne, from Herat Afghanistan. I wish her all the best and happiness in years to come. Even it says 40 but very younger than that and more like a very pretty queen.
    All the best for Anne and you,

    Aref Noorzai, Herat Afghanistan
