Little girls and birthday parties

Yesterday was Kouryou-chan (elfs & omahas daughter) party celebration of her fifth birthday. A whole herd of kids of about that age, screaming, running, enjoying ice cream cake, playing karaoke, and, of course presents. I think the kids who brought presents got as much joy out of seeing their gift opened as Kouryou had in opening them. She was able to read each card and note.

I got her some wonderfully warped books. The Frog Prince Continued, Baloney (Henry P.) and The Annotated Alice. The last book is a bit much for her, but I figured that she can grow into it, and her parents will enjoy reading it to her. (Nostalgia alert. I still have fond memories of my dad reading the Alice stories to us.)
