Girl of the House Turns 14

A pile of presents~

Plus a birthday pie made by Girl of the House herself~

Plus a gaggle of girls. Two specimens~

Plus warm birthday wishes~

Equals a very happy birthday!

  2. What presents did the birthday girl get? :)

  3. Let's see . . . from us she got a bulletin board, the two latest Connie Willis books, The Princess Bride and West Side Story on video, and a Swiss army knife. What in the world she's going to do with that I don't know, but she really wanted it, and Man of the House thought it was a good idea, so . . .

    She seemed very pleased. :-)

  4. Cut open packages, trip candle wicks, un-do knots, and things like that with it. ;)
