HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COURTNEY!!



Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear Courtney,
Happy Birthday to you!

Yesterday was Courtney's 27th birthday. I wrote the birthday message to him in the sand at the beach yesterday...there will be another post for that. After the basketball game on Friday night we decorated the patio, Katie & I baked a cake and we partied like Rock Stars! We had quite a turn out for his birthday shindig, including the Headmaster of our school (kind of like a Superintendent), the man in charge of finances, housing & is the Pres. of the Board of Trustees, our Principal, our neighbor Charles Rivera, and lots of teachers. The party was to begin at 7:00 but Puerto Ricans are like Brazilians and have their own time. The first guests arrived at 8:00 (yes, we were getting a little worried) and the last guest arrived at 11:45. They brought salsa music so we could dance and they brought lots of alcohol for Courtney...how did they know?! We tried our hands at dancing and had a blast. One of the teachers, Lisa, and her husband, Harry, were salsa dancing champions in the '90s. Harry tried to help Courtney with his moves. Here are some pictures of Courtney & Harry and me and the girls (Lisa, Mariola, Katie, & Kisha).
