Birthday Girl

Happy birthday to my favorite 8 year old!

She celebrated with a skating party at a local rink, complete with pizza, cake, presents and the whole place singing 'happy birthday' as she stood in a sparkling circle of light.

Extrovert heaven!

Leanne practiced her skating, with Mary, Matt and I taking turns escorting her around the rink on her Steady Betty (I can't remember what that thing's actually called . . .)

And to top off an already great day, Naia - who was using $$ she earned at the morning's garage sale to buy game tokens for the little kids -

hit the giant jackpot and won over 1500 tickets!

Way to go! It's going to take hours to feed those tickets into the counter and then spend all her loot. Good thing she has Leia to help.
