Lena's Surprise Party

Lena got what she's (secretly) always wanted: A surprise birthday party!

For her 13th birthday we decided to take matters into our own hands and invite her whole class (it's pretty small) as well as the students from last years class who now go to other schools. In all about 22 teens.

Luckily, all but 5 or 6 of the students showed up to surprise her. It went great! Here's a short video clip filmed about a minute or two after we walked into the room and everybody yelled "Surprise!"

See some pics from the event at my Facebook album, here (friends only).

Presents from Grandma and Grandpa!

Lena and Emili got a package from America with some nice birthday presents inside!

Here's Lena on the phone saying thanks. She's wearing the Oregon University hooded sweatshirt she got from them. You can see more pics of them both at my Facebook album here.

As you can see from the picture below, I really gotta lose some weight! He he. This was also before Lena got makeup tips from a babe at the Body Shoppe, so now her makeup looks much nicer (not quite so much around the eyes).
