Autumn Is Five!

Autumn Brooke turned 5 today. She celebrated at preschool with her little friends. I brought pumpkin mini-muffins that Amber and I made. They were a hit! After school, Amber gave Autumn her present--a Strawberry Shortcake doll that used to be Amber's doll. Amber knew that Autumn wanted it, so a few weeks ago when Amber was giving away toys to the thrift store, she set aside Strawberry Shortcake and surprised Autumn with it. After Eric got home, Autumn opened the present from us--roller skates. Last month, we took Autumn rollerskating with Young Life and she loved it, so Eric wanted to get her a pair of skates. She was so excited that she took a little spin outside in the dark, with some help! Then we went to Autumn's favorite restaurant for dinner--Sea Fresh. I think she just likes it because of the stuffed fish and big shark on the wall! She had such a fun day that she fell asleep on the 10-minute drive home!
