53 Years Old!

Dear Kevin (& family)-

Well Dad did it- He survived another year and is now 53 years old! To celebrate he got to speak in church. The meeting was “How having a missionary in the field blesses our family.”  Sis Laney spoke, Sis Jensen spoke, then the YM sang “Armies of Helaman” and dad topped it all off.  Well, I guess you could say that you were really the concluding speaker- dad had your binder of letters with sticky notes on the pages he wanted to read from.  He was a hit when he read “Baptisimo” and raised his arms and fists above his head.  The second time he did that the Lambert boys were all giggling and laughing (along with other kids).  The third time he didn’t have to say anything but just raised his arms up.  It was so good to hear of the experiences John, Matt, and you are having - In totally different places (Salt Lake, Poland, and Brazil) and having great, although very different, spiritual and growing experiences. You guys are really doing a great job and working hard.

We served dad some of his favorites for dinner:  roast beef, mashed potatoes, cauliflower, sour dough bread, and even some shrimp.  We later had cake and sang Happy Birthday with Jennifer on Google + and Jessica on the phone.
