Trav's sister, Alicia, celebrated her 40th birthday in style.
Rather than dread the big day, she threw herself a birthday bash!
My kind of a woman!!!!

I don't just love this picture - I FREAKIN' love this picture!
He wasn't camera-shy in the least.
Love this kid.

I only got a few pictures, darn it, but the room was full:
family, friends, neighbors, and fellow autism-moms.
All who love Alicia and wanted to celebrate her.
I deeply, deeply admire this woman.
She's an incredibly strong, determined, patient, forgiving individual.
She never expects anything from anyone yet she's always giving of herself and her blessings.
She is a fantastic mother - I can say this honestly as I have observed her with her children.
I truly think we could all learn a little from this beautiful 40 year old. :)
Happy 40th, Alicia!!!
