freddy and pat hung laurel's swing she got for christmas. she LOVES it. thanks, buddy!

yep, i think he loves it too!

party time! laurel had a cupcake party. everything was pink and brown and white.

the big girls made party hats.

here are a couple of the finished products.

so many people love this little girl and came a long way to wish her happy birthday. both of our families made the trip, although we missed chris, merrill, and merrill III. thank you friends and family! we love each of you so much.
