Ginger celebrated her 8th birthday yesterday. I am still finding it hard to believe, although she told me she feels like she's 10 (thank goodness she's not-- I find one 10 year old to be quite enough, thank you!).

Pen hand-sewed her a little pouch to put things in.

Sitting with my folks, who came to help her celebrate:

A book she's really been wanting:

Sizing up the cake:

Maybe wishing the candles weren't quite so spread out...

I think she had a great time and really appreciated all of the gifts and phone calls she received. Ginger can't wait to be baptized at the end of the month-- she had her Bishop's interview on Sunday and set out what she wanted to wear several days before the event. Excited is an understatement. Happy Birthday, Ginger!!

What a darling cake. Curty turns eight in a few months -- I may have to steal that idea!
