Tomorrow is Grace's first birthday, but we celebrated it a little early. Joe's parents and grandma came over from Idaho to celebrate with us, and we were also joined by the Horton clan. Not to leave my side of the family out, we will be having a joint celebration for Grace and my brother Joel who is graduating from high school this coming weekend.
