Today we celebrate Lela's 5th birthday, if you can believe that!
We had a little family party at home yesterday. Resli loved reading the cards to Lela.
She also made Lela a wonderful gift, which was a book, "An Alphabet about Lela," in which each page was dedicated to a letter of the alphabet, each with its own sentence about Lela and drawing to match.
Lela also enjoyed the Barbie doll she got from Grandma and Granddaddy,
which came with a birthday tiara for her to wear too.
This is how Mami celebrates...
and, um, how Daddy celebrates?
Nana gave Lela this hysterical book, which we all giggled reading (but mostly Harvey and I!).
And Grandpa and Eleanor gave her a ballerina doll and tutu.
Some other presents are still, er, in transit.
But then today the celebration continued at school!
Ms. Quillan and Lela's friends sang 'Happy Birthday' to her in English, Chinese and Spanish.
And she and all her friends shared the snack she brought in: apples, cheese sticks and little muffins.
All in all, we think it was a good day!
