And here's a picture of a crown she and I worked on together that she'll wear tonight with her birthday dress:
The crown is very bejeweled and sparkly which sad to say doesn't show up in the picture. I gave her this little kit that makes several crowns with "stick by number" jewels that you glue on and she loved it. I always feel like my presents are pretty much dumb, but this one really hit a home run.
And, one can only imagine what talents Sophia will develop during her fifth year based on her incredible interior decorating skills as evidenced in this picture of the table arrangement she made on mom's dining room table for Christmas!
I asked her mom "you mean she even did the candlesticks?!" and, yes, she did. I'd say the flair is there. :)
Tonight Aunts January and Maggie will come up, have their Christmas with Heather and Alex and the kiddies, and Sophia will get to open some birthday presents and then we will have an ice cream cake (mm-mmm).
Meanwhile, Johnny trundled off to school this morning with his cello on his back and tonight we'll go watch him at his fencing class!! Amazing...
