birthday fun

The birthday girl started her seventh birthday with pancakes.

And birthday hats.

Lydia had her cookies ready for school. (She insisted on carrying them on to the bus so that Miss Sheryl - her bus driver - would know it was her birthday. Then they'd sing "Happy Birthday" on the way to school after picking up the last stop.)

When she got home from school, Uncle Derek popped in.

We opened some gifts.

Great-Mom-Mom and Great-Pop-Pop shared a favorite movie with Lydia: The Sound of Music.

A sewing machine! (Thank you, ALDI.)

We all love this song, and this painting says so much.

Pop-Pop delivered the birthday rose.

Jesse wanted to learn all about the glitter pens.

Dirt dessert after dinner!

A visit to the birthday ruler.

Happy Birthday, Lydia!!!
