When you turn ten around here you can stay up later, watch LOTR, and begin Lower School at St. Augustine's. Generally it means the double digits transition you from little kid status to middle kid status. Life is very exciting when you become ten!
Happy Birthday Maria Theresa!
The theme turned out to be 'friends' and the Hobbit cake, made by Monica (homemade fondant and all) to celebrate watching LOTR fits in quite nicely with 'friends'.
