My second oldest turned 9 yesterday! She had a great day with lots of phone calls and emails from friends and family, and my sister hosted a wonderful birthday tea party for Cari at her home yesterday afternoon. The food was delicious, and the table settings were very pretty. Cari was definitely "queen for a day" and loved every minute of it. Unfortunately, I cannot find my camera cord to post some pictures, so until it turns up, you can take a look at some snapshots over at my sister's blog.
