And Now We Are Nine

This evening we celebrated Anne Marie's 9th birthday! With her new boots and hat, she looks like a teenager!



                      Here is the cake I picked out for her, because it is different, wild, and colorful!



Here are the balloons I got.

Here she is shaking and opening her presents. One is a Lego set, and she got to work right away building it!




And here is Anne and her dad, at the end of a happy day.
