Grace’s Birthday Party

We had Grace’s birthday party on Friday the 4th, and went outside for her cake & ice cream and presents (because we only have a flash-less camera at present).

Everyone else was outside first, so we sang to Grace on her way from the front door to the party table:
And we were out of birthday candles, so we gathered 7 candles from around the house and lit them instead:
She had fun opening her presents
And Andrew even stayed awake for part of her party!

Saturday night (the 5th), G’pa and G’ma Smith, freshly home from a trip to North Carolina, came over for supper (with their flash-equipped camera). (Yes, that’s their dog on a stool at the table)

Grace got to open some more presents
And Stephen delivered an almost open-eyed smile (his current trend is the squinty eyed smile)

    Thanks for the super pics! What a fun party! And I love the creativity of gathering candles from around the house!When Clara saw the picture of Andrew in his chair at the party, she said "Kiah" (her name for Hilkiah). 🙂
