My Birthday

Hello, lovely readers!  November 5, last Wednesday, was my birthday!
When I woke up, I was surprised to not to see Chrissa and Georgia in bed.  Normally, I'm the first one up.  Then I remembered: today was my birthday!
"Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!" Georgia said.
"Mom and I made you cinnamon rolls for breakfast this morning." she gestured to the yummy bread.
"Oh, thank -"
"Happy B-day, Elizabeth!" Chrissa shouted, throwing her arms around me.
"Thank you!" I said, laughing. "But you don't need to yell."
"Let's eat, girls.  Your dad needs to get to work." Mother said, guiding us into the dinning room.
After that delicious food, Mother said I could open one of my gifts.
"Which should I open?" I wondered out loud.
"Why not that big white one in the back?" Mother offered.
"Oo, you're going to like this!" Chrissa rubbed her hand together.
"Oh, how pretty!" I said, lifting a sweater out of the box.
"Chrissa and I knew that you wanted a gold sweater to go with your new skirt." Georgia said. "So we told Mom, and well - here it is!"
"Now I want to get dressed, and then I'll do some school-" I started.
"WHAT?!" Chrissa interrupted for the second time. "Why on earth would you want to do school on your birthday?!  You don't even have to!"
(Side note: we are home-schooled, so if we want to have a day, like a birthday, off, we can just work ahead.)
"Well," I replied, "I was going to work on my Globe model, which fun to do.  I don't know about the other subjects, though."
"You did work ahead, Elizabeth." Mother commented. "So I think there's no reason for you to work on your birthday."
Do you like my new sweater?
I did work on my project until lunch, which was at twelve o'clock and fun and fancy.
Following that, Chrissa wanted my to open her gift, so I did.
Then, my grandparents called to wish my happy birthday.
Next I opened a gift bag to find ...
"A Nook?" I asked.
"Don't you like it?" Georgia said. "Considering how much you read, Mom and Dad thought you'd like it."
"Like it?" I laughed. "I love it!  Thank you so much. Mother!  And Father, even though he isn't here."
I quickly started downloading some books. and happily read all afternoon.
After dinner, I finished opening all my gifts.

When ever I pulled up Google Chrome that day, the search engine wished my happy birthday!  It was very nice.
Oh - an update on the Doll Wardrobe Contest.  I did not win, which was not too surprising.  Here is a link to their post of the winners:
