|Here she is- totally surprised and holding back tears.|
|Kristi is THE most fun person to do something like this for. She wears her feelings on her sleeve- and just LOVES and adores her friends.|
|You can see what a doll she is here!|
|We went to El Tio because we knew it was a place Kristi loved. They brought her the birthday sombrero and she wasn't too excited about wearing it. (If you know Kristi- she's not a big fan of germs) That's as far down on her head as that hat got!!|
|Carol (pictured to the Left of Kristi) made the most amazing chocolate cake. (She's also an amazing cook, gardener, decorator- she does it ALL!) We pretty much died of chocolate cake death it was so good.|
|Here's the whole gang of folks. Kristi has so many wonderful friends- if you knew her you would want to be her friend too. She just has this magnetic personality and is so funny and warm and genuine and I want to be like her.|
Through this past year and all she has been through, losing her husband, moving and picking up and starting a new life in Utah, she has really shown me a true example of courage and faith. She decides everyday to be happy and live her life as fully as she can for her grandkids and family and friends. You are amazing Kristi and we love you!!!
