Happy Birthday, Klenda!

 Klenda is 18!  She's officially an adult!

This is super special to me because she nearly died as a baby.  Her life was saved with major surgery, but we were only given a 5% percent chance of  being completely  physically normal- and she hit that 5%!

Actually, she may have overshot the mark a bit!

And here she is, this bright, lovely, talented young woman who brings such joy to our lives!

I imagine turning 18 was pretty special to her, too, so we had a party with her friends
 And a party with extended family.

And a party with "just" the 8 of us!

In which she was given hats, obviously.
