Grandma Char gave Daphne a necklace....Aunt Jen put it on her....Daphne admires it

Daphne opening her gifts....Laura asked Erin if they should buy the beautiful egg for Daphne...
Erin replied "No, buy it for Me!"

When Daphne opened the book Grumpy Bird from her Grandparents, she exclaimed, "I know this book!"
And who doesn't love a pop-up book?
Daphne's gifts
An autograph dog from her teacher, Miss Jeanne.  All the students signed it!

And so, the first party ended.

     Grandpa Terry took Alex and Hannah home, Jimmy took Daphne and Erin home and Jeff took Brendan and Owen home.  So Grandma Kathy, Becky, Bill and Jean decided to spend the night with Laura.  We played several games and laughed a lot.  Grandma Kathy, Becky and Bill went to bed at 2:30 while Jean and Laura were up until 5.  They were outside having a bonfire when they heard the early morning birds sing!

Jean....Laura....Acting out a clue....Kathy and Shamus (the puppet fireman) try to think of an answer

Murphy outside....Jean and Bill....Shamus and Jean

Bill wondering if he will ever go to one of the "Ward Girls" parties again.

The chalkboard the next morning.
Jean got a ride home to Lowell from Kathy.
Bill has a very good idea.
Kathy got to edit out what she called her darling daughters.
