Abby is 6!

Today is Abby's 6th birthday!

She is a fabulous person.  We love her creativity - her desire to make everything beautiful.  She has an excellent memory and is a quick learner.  She is a very caring sister and treats her siblings exceptionally well. We are so proud of her desire to be good and to make good choices.

We had a very nice day, complete with a donut breakfast, a trip to Impressions 5 (which happened to fall on Chemistry Day which proved to be very fun) and lunch at McDonald's.  In the afternoon she helped decorate her cake, spent some time with mom, went with the family to the neighbor's 1st birthday party and rounded it off with a pizza dinner and her own cake!  Busy, but complete.

Impressions 5 is always a favorite of our kids.  We haven't gone for a few months, but were excited to see some of the new exhibits.  There is an awesome building area with all sorts of building materials.  Abby was especially excited about all the special chemistry events.  Students from local colleges and high schools set up displays throughout the museum with fun hands-on activities for the kids.  Mike's work was a sponsor and also had some activities.
This is Abby unwrapping a gift.  She got the bathrobe she is wearing, a couple outfits, a watch, lots of arts and crafts supplies, a movie, the traditional birthday photo book and a pony stuffed animal.  Thanks to all the grandparents and aunts and uncles for the lovely gifts.  (I like this picture because Briton was being strongly encouraged to keep his hands to himself while Abby opened her gifts.  He was just way too excited for all the festivities!)
