It's absolutely incredible how much of a difference in our lives she's made already, even at this young age. We figured out fairly early on that she is one of those people whose personality just will not quit.
We have a full day today -- Open House at her school, a school-sponsored Ice Cream Social after everyone else gets out of school, and then a family celebration at dinner. I'll post pictures of that later.
In the meantime, here's her present from Tim and me:
My first foray into the world of two-color freezer paper stenciling. I got the idea from Knitting Iris here, who said she saw them originally here at chrysanthemum. Perfect for a butterfly birthday, I thought. This is the back of the shirt.
But I had a lot more trouble with this one than I've had with others I've done. There was a noticeable amount of bleeding from the freezer paper not sticking as securely. Not sure what caused that. Maybe ironing freezer paper to a painted surface doesn't work as well. But a few touch-ups later and I think it will be fine.
