WW: Violet's 10th Birthday

 A quick note from Daddy made for a perfect start to the day.
 She has excellent choice in cakes.  Miniature chocolate bundt cakes with chocolate chips inside and chocolate icing with more chocolate chips on top.  Delicious!!
 I let each of the kids choose a gift for Violet from the dollar bins at ToysRUs.  She loved Jessie's marbles
as well as Benny's bubble items and Henry's play dough.
 There were things to make and things to read.
 There was even something to play with.  Note the shocked expression when she received a fairy doll from DH and I.  What can I say?  At least it will already have a home in the fairy tub on the shelf.
The best gift cost me nothing.  A little bit of sneakiness got the second Harry Potter book home from the library without detection.  I successfully deflected suspicion by suggesting Henry might have put it in the crate when they found it while pulling out their own books.  (He really does know where to find the books in the library.)  The look on her face when I handed it to her and said she could read it now... priceless!
