Last Sunday, August 30, Dennis celebrated his 72nd birthday. He seemed to thoroughly enjoy all the events surrounding the day! He tried to reply to the many birthday wishes he received on Facebook and by email--that's a first for sure! We enjoyed the Campo Largo Ward Conference at church -- we taught our Temple Prep class as usual, and he sang in the ward choir while I played. That evening, we invited the Elders to join us for my Brazilian version of German Chocolate Cake and ice cream (which fell because our oven went out several times). As a result, we enjoyed ice cream with a chocolate pudding cake with German chocolate cake topping! The ice cream was very soft and was blobbed in big heaps onto the plates. But still, the food was gone RAPIDAMENTE!
The Elders gave Elder Thomas a new tie for his birthday.
Elders Bryan, Fontes, Carvalho, Nunes; brothers Luiz, Carlos
On Monday evening, we hosted the Elders again, with lots of delivered pizza, after their big P-Day at the Vila Velha Park (see our blog post dated July 20, 2015). Wednesday, we again met the Elders at Lacador Churráscaria for lunch--also his choice, for his birthday. It was a great several days!
