As I've mentioned before, Jackie likes to celebrate birthdays all month if she can. Another tradition that she has is to have breakfast for the birthday child. Carmen picked cinnamon rolls and chose a rather late time for breakfast. We ate around 10:00 AM and she had opened most of her presents by 10:30.
I was particularly proud of the items that Carmen put on her list. I was even happier when Jackie supported the developing of Carmen's analytical mind with the purchase of a Wireless USB Mouse, USB Flash Drive (with necklace), and the best of all a graphing calculator for algebra and geometry.
This afternoon we will be going to the movies to see "The Guardian". Tonight the kids will be going to a bonfire. The bonfire is for the entire youth group and One Way, but Adam and Robin will be sure to make everyone aware that it is Carmen's birthday.
