17 - Opal's Spa Party
Opie wanted a party with massage. So we transformed our bedroom into The Precious Jewel Spa. Each girl received a pedicure from Mama, a facial from Kivi and Grace and a full massage from Miss Toni! We had tea and treats and the girls soaked in the hot tub between treatments.
After opening presents we had birthday brownies and watched Ella Enchanted. This was the quietest, most peaceful party we've ever had!
We love you, Opal! You've been learning massage this year from Miss Toni so it's fitting that you chose a spa party for your 10th. You love to relax. Sometimes you wish you could just relax all day instead of do your work - which has led to quite a few consequences this year. But you are working hard in T&T, help with breakfast a lot and love to take care of the babies. You still love your Nay Nay, playing make-up with Pella, painting nails and sleeping in. You have a strong persistence and we know God is going to use it for good in you. You will change the world for Him, O! Happy 10th Birthday, Opie!

28 - England, here we come - in first class! We flew Norwegian Airlines and Peter unbeknownst to me put in a bid that got us bumped up to first class! So we were able to eat a free lunch in the premier club at the airport and have lots of room on the plane. We tried to sleep on the plane but ended up watching movies instead. Dinner was beef, potatoes, salad and macarons and lots of “fun drinks” for Dada.
