Laura began her birthday with presents from all of us. I'm pretty sure her favorite gifts were a make your own lip balm kit and a big bunch of gel pens.
Then she went shopping with Grandma and Grandpa for clothes. (Gma Linda took her to decorate a vase later.) She came home in time for her birthday lunch - no dinner since she had to perform that night. She selected salmon, couscous, and roasted broccoli. Instead of cake, she wanted homemade cream puffs.
Our whole family went to see her at Macbeth that night. She was wonderful. Afterwards we all went out for floats at Pop 'n Sweets.

She is constantly in shows and is working so hard at musical theater. She is so talented at singing and acting that it blows me away. Laura is also incredibly kind and still the very top student in her class at school. She is helpful with her sisters and housework and is becoming much more independent. Happy Birthday, and we love you, Laura!
