Happy Birthday to Lanton

We took Lanton out to celebrate his 12th birthday last Saturday. He is
the son of Mirriam, our house help. We had a great time eating ice cream,
watching him go up an escalator for the first time or shout out "Superman"
as he went up an elevator for the first time. He is a super sweet boy. On
the way in to the mall, we asked what he wanted for birthday. He said a
football. Lo and behold, that is what we had bought him! As we were
leaving, we asked, "Would you like a cake, a chicken dinner for your dinner
this evening or pizza?" He paused for a moment and then said with
enthusiasm, "PIZZA!" So, pizza it was. It wasn't nearly as awkward as we
thought it might be with 5 girls to celebrate his birthday with, because as
Brady and he said it best, "We are like brothers and sisters."
