Ginny turned 5 on March 7th. She is a pretty amazing kid. She is smart, funny, sensitive and independent. She has a wicked sense of humor and one of the most infectious laughs you will ever hear. She definitely marches to her own beat. Her fashion sense is in a word - monochromatic. Her top has to match the bottom. She loves to play with Jorja, but is also starting to enjoy her little sister's company as well. The three of them all play fairly well together most days.
Leading up to her birthday, there was a lot of discussion about what she wanted for a gift. When we looked in stores, it pretty much boiled down to she wanted everything. Obviously, this wasn't going to happen. After doing some Internet research, she decided she would like some Lego. That works for me - I love Lego. We got her a couple of sets, and nine days later, she is still playing with it. That's a good sign. Today, she built something with no instructions. Awesome! That's what Lego is supposed to be about. Sets are nice, but we got most of our enjoyment just building stuff ourselves. Here she is with some of her stuff.
Fast forward to the Sunday after her actual birthday to her party. She invited 7 friends from preschool to a gymnastics party. They all had a blast and we had some tired, sweaty girls when we were done.
Then came cake and presents.
Everyone was really thirsty by the time we headed home.
Another great party in the books (and not in our house). Later.
