Eku Ojobi Charles!
Happy Birthday Charley!
Charles started off the day with a special breakfast, complete with GRAPE JELLY! Grape jelly is a valuable commodity here, but it happened to show up at the grocery store this week (Only one jar and it wasn't even expired). Since it is rarely found here, I saved it for his birthday breakfast. We also met friends for lunch at the Cactus restaurant, and spent a few hours just relaxing and visiting. Tonight, we had another treat - chocolate birthday cake with chocolate icing - all brought in my suitcase from the states (Cake mix and a can of favorite frosting). We learn to appreciate the little things when we are far away from home! Oh, he got a Kindle for his gift - We sure do hope it works in Nigeria!
