When we came home yesterday there were a couple of packages waiting on our front step. Glory was so excited to get her first birthday gifts! They were from Aunt Jennie and Aunt Robin. She loved the clothes from Aunt Jennie and wore the dress today to AWANA.
We set up the picture frames from Aunt Robin around the house. My favorite was the one with pictures from Danya's birthday at Frontier City in it. Gloria's eyes lit up when she found 6 whole dollars in one package. Daniel looked nervous because he pays the kids 5% interest per week on any money they save in the "Elliott Bank" we created. Our girls have turned out to be surprisingly frugal. Gloria doesn't know it but she'll be getting a couple more packages from my side of the family later over the next couple of days.
Speaking of gifts, Danya seems "strangely gifted" to me in this photo. I have no idea how she got into that odd position or managed to stay that way, much less why she feels like it's a comfortable position to read in.
