Eight is Enough, Part III: The Evening
At last it was time for the goods! Clare made out very well, and she was so gracious about each one. Donna and Larry gave her these beautiful youth atlases that I think we will all love perusing - Clare had a hard time putting them down, but Danny was eager for her to continue opening the Egyptian Playmobil sets. She was delighted to get a couple of sewing projects (an interest she does not get from me), clothes for her American Girl, clothes for herself, and some sticky mosaics that the cats thoughtfully gave her. In short, everything on her list - and we haven't even had her party yet!
As always, the cake was a big hit, too, though Clare had been so engrossed with her presents that she had forgotten about cake. If you know Clare and her sweet tooth, this is really saying something!
Clare proclaimed it "the best birthday ever" several times, so that pretty much sums it up.
Next up: a party with 12 8-year-olds.
