Girls' 11th birthday

Sunday was Essie and Chloe's 11th birthday.  We celebrated on Saturday night, though, with family.  The girls caught Olympic fever this summer and requested an Olympics cake.

New school shoes

The girls' favorite thing:  Adventures in Odyssey

Grandma Melanie gave them some Adventures in Odyssey devotional books for girls: Candid Conversations with Connie.

Double Dutch jump ropes from Meemaw

And handmade aprons from Meemaw.  These girls are good cooks!

New basketball shoes from Aunt Buffy, since our toes were coming out the end of our old ones

And something the girls have been wanting for a long time - Kindles!

Aaaaand we've lost them.

And the obligatory cute "first birthday party" picture to show you how much they've grown.
