We celebrated Lucy's 9th a month after the fact, but what's better than dragging out birthday fun?
She wanted a dachshund party, with face painting and a craft. So, that's what we did.
Our good friend, Miss Beth, graciously painted everyone's face with the animal of their choice.
Here are some things about Lucy at age nine:
She loves dogs. Especially dachshunds.
She recently became a vegetarian.
She's an avid Harry Potter Lego player on the Wii.
She is tall and wears a woman's size 6 shoe.
She is generous and always keeps a box of trinkets to give away to friends who visit.
She likes to play the piano.
She is a hard worker and loves to save and spend her money.
She loves to wear high heels when she can and has been putting Sun-In in her hair all summer to make it blonde.
She loves to draw.
