Laura at 9 Years Old

We celebrated Laura's birthday before we left for Disneyland. She went shopping with Grandma and Grandpa and got presents from us. It was the birthday of crafting bracelets and tween-y things. She also got a lava lamp and CDs.

But I think her favorite present was going shopping with us to pick out the birthday outfit that she is modeling below!
Laura is currently 52 inches tall.  Here are the results of her birthday interview...
Best Friend: Lily, Mia, Halie, Keilani, Angelena
Favorite Toy: Swings
Favorite place to be: Disneyland
Favorite movie: The Secret World of Arietty
Favorite music: One Direction
Favorite food: salmon, sushi
Favorite treat: Hershey's Bar
Favorite activity: playing with friends
Favorite TV show: Good Luck Charlie
Every day after school Laura diligently practices her piano and voice. She has become exceptional at both and has scads of musical talent. She continues to get straight A's; in fact the standardized tests she took last year had results of 100% (zero missed answers) on the math, language arts and science. Yep, she was perfect on every aspect that was tested by the state. She is reading at a 10th grade level and does math at a 5th grade level. Laura is sweet, perceptive, and strong. She is also brave, funny, and friendly. I'm so proud of the exceptional girl Laura continues to be!


  1. I couldn't agree more. Laura is one amazing little bug and we are blessed to have her in our lives! I love you my Laura girl!!!

  2. Wow, she is looking so grown-up. I love the new outfit. It's hard to believe that they are becoming tweens!! Hope you had a great birthday Laura! Oh, and I love the pictures with her sisters, so loved!

  3. What a special time Grandpa and I had with Laura celebrating her birthday. She is so sweet, thoughtful and fun to be around. No wonder she has so many friends and no wonder her little sisters love her so much. We all do!!

  4. Laura you are such a special girl and we love you dearly!
    You are the best!
