Happy Birthday, Dear Lainey

We woke early on Sunday to open gifts and celebrate with our big 7 year old.

Guinea Pig book from Aunt Mary was a big hit!


Caroline sent a plethora of gifts associated with the guinea pig, too.






Lainey donned her guinea pig shirt from Caroline and a cute sweater from Britney for CCD that morning. First day of CCD on Lainey's birthday? Lucky girl. :)


Laine got her first 'young adult'-ish book about Frozen with chapters. It's quite advanced. Proud of our strong reader.


Time for cake!



And, we finished the evening at the beach with a sunset picnic. It was lovely.






The sported a shirt given to her by Pa and Mae Mae for her first day back to school after lots of gifts.....so proud of all her new stuff.


Two more big celebrations planned. She has a Mermaid Party on the beach with friends at the end of the month and then also the Elsa makeover will come early October. Starnes children enjoy about 12 birthday events. Nothing wrong with that. Childhood happens only once.

Happy Birthday, lovely Lainey! She is the precious girl we never knew we wanted. What a gift she is to us.
