So now we fast forward one week to the morning of January 17th. Hanna has been skating for 5 years and Jake has been skating for about 5 minutes. Let's see the differences:
But then came the evening of January 17th. The night when everyone came together from near and far (thanks, Ben and Kim) to celebrate mom's 60th birthday.

You say that you are "blessed", but it is all of us that are "blessed" by knowing you and learning from you each and everyday.
So, do you think we surprised her?
