"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Its a party!

Alina celebrated her first American Birthday on Saturday, April 2nd. She would say 'thats my party!' or 'My birthday!' when she seen her presents waiting in our closet or her birthday stuff, but she had no idea what that meant. When everyone sang to her, she danced and smiled. Opening gifts was fun too, she had so many fun and new things to discover!

Happy 4th Birthday Alina!

She loves Hello Kitty

A little pre-party snack

Alexander took all the gift opening pics!

Anthony was a big help. :)

Pillowpet from Anthony

I think she had a great day, and is a happy girl! <3
