The day before Samantha and I continued our tradition of having a "Birthday Date" on a day near her birthday. For this one, we reviewed all of the previous dates (starting when she was 6 years old). Later, at dinner, I presented her with 78 scenic postcards that friends of mine from around the world sent to me to pass on to her (as well as their birthday wishes).
|We used pictures on the computer and entries in my daily journal to help us recall the details of our Birthday Dates.|
