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!!
