20 joyous years

It seems like Joy's birthday was ages ago, but really it has just been a couple of weeks. And I couldn't let it pass without getting the pictures from that fun night, posted here. So, here they are:

I still can't believe that she is 20!

 There was pizza,

pokemon hunting downtown and sight seeing with some of her best friends and siblings.

And cake!

 -Gotta love when your kid grow up and wants to make her own cake and it is prettier than any one that you could've bought for her!

There have been some song lyrics that have become like a prayer to her during this time of grief and healing. And when I was trying to learn handlettering, she asked me to make a picture for her with them but I didn't really get the hang of it and didn't make the picture. But for her birthday, I asked a gracphics design artist that I know, to design a print that I could frame.

Well, she didn't actually do that. To my surprise, what she did was PAINT the words!
On wood, no less! She wrapped it for me and when Joy opened it, I was as shocked as she was!
 I love these next photos:

We believe God is going to make it all count
 and even better, somehow work for good! : )

Happy Birthday, sweet Girl!
