All household birthdays (not to mention several holidays!) fall between Oct 29th, and Jan 10th, so this is a festive, if busy season for us.
My Kaira-girl had her 6th birthday yesterday! Several times today she’s commented that she feels very grown up now. She dined on steak and lobster tail (her choice, and a rare treat), and opened presents of doll clothes, books, and a special gift from our guest, Kristy–a colorful scarf! Last weekend we’d gone to the Butterfly Pavilion with my parents, and yesterday’s quiet little party at home was low-key, but joyous.
