Abigail's 7th birthday celebration

We had a wonderful time celebrating Abigail's seventh birthday with her.  We have a tradition of a birthday gift  at breakfast, so she opened the new sundress I had made for her.
Mid-morning, she got her main gift from us so that she could use it the rest of the day!  She was completely surprised by it -- we had noticed that she was too big for her old bike but we had mentioned it to her -- it was a great birthday surprise!
How did she get so big?!
  She also got some bug-hunting equipment from her brother.  They even caught a butterfly that afternoon!
Karen and Noah came over to share the evening's birthday festivities.  We had Abigail's request for her birthday supper...ravioli, salad, asparagus, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower (she has always been our vegetable queen!).
Her birthday cake this year was a Cinderella doll cake.  Although she had a purple princess in this style a few years ago, she really wanted this and so she got it!
After dinner was birthday gift time.  She was thrilled with a beautiful new dress (in her latest favorite color to wear) and a craft kit from her great-Grandpa and -Grandma O'Gorman.
There was a loud yell of excitement when she got birthday money from Uncle Chuck, Aunt Connie, Amanda, and Alicia!
New ballet slippers from Grandpa and Grandma Minota earned an "oooooh!" and an immediate performance.
 We had a wonderful celebration to mark a wonderful milestone!  To be continued...

She is so precious! I love the sundress. It reminds me of a pillowcase dress which I think is so creative and cute!
