Abigail's second 7th birthday celebration :)

My dad- and mom-in-law had planned to be here to celebrate Abigail's birthday with us, but they got hit with a nasty cold virus and had to postpone their visit so they didn't share more with Abigail than just her gifts!  Abigail thought it was fun that she got two birthday celebrations this year!  She opened her presents from Grandpa and Grandma McKee (see some of them on the table by her?!) and then got another birthday dessert and serenade!

My mom-in-law and I took the kids and went to the Margaret Mitchell house (the apartment where she lived and wrote Gone With The Wind).  It was full of history and quite fascinating.
This is the the front door of Tara from the movie set.
Margaret Mitchell and her husband lived in the apartment on the bottom left.  That's where she wrote her famous book.
I realize in retrospect that I didn't take any pictures of both kids with both grandparents -- grrr!  While we were gone on our field trip, my dad-in-law did some puttering around the house for us.  By the end of the day, I had under-cabinet lights on my coffeepot counter!  Doesn't it look nice?!  We love using it every morning.
 We had a wonderful time together and Abigail thoroughly enjoyed both of her birthday celebrations!
