Today is Princess Bink's 9th birthday. My thoughts this morning are returning to her first birthday with us when she turned four.
She had her third birthday just three days before we adopted her so she'd waited a full year to have a birthday celebration as part of our family. Here are some of the pictures from that day back in 2006:
Making the cake with Anna
Dad decorated the cake, a family tradition
Princess Bink only weighed about 20 pounds as she turned four
She loved the big dog that came out of the big box. She still sleeps with him every night.
As she waited for the candles to be put on her cake she paraded in her Dad's shoes
We all delighted in being the first to provide birthday delight for this former orphan
