The Double Digit Birthday

I have loved this girl since she came into this world with a bellow, letting us know that she had arrived with gusto. And so, the gusto has remained, and she was particularly gustified in the past few days to enter double digits.

First, the annual collage of various shots from throughout the year.


Her birthday was on Wednesday, but our half of the family mostly celebrated on Tuesday. Here are shots of gift opening.

A hug from Mom with some of hr gifts

More $ for the cruise to come later this year

The trophies

She had decided that dessert would not be the traditional cake, at least not with us, so it was off to DQ.


She had also prevailed upon us to take her actual double digit birthday day, Wednesday, off school. And since Sue and I are worthless retirees, her request could be accommodated. I put the camera in the car for our travels and never thought to use it, so that's the end of her birthday for this year, silly old fool that I am.

Happy Birthday wishes to Danica and a nice collection of gifts she received as well. And, I agree that the ice cream treat is a good choice.

DQ was a good choice to celebrate double digits. My oldest grandie will be attaining double digits next year, I can hardly believe where the time has gone.
