Yep, our String Bean turned 8 years old on March 1, 2008. She missed being a "Leap Day Millenial" baby by about 9 hours ... I actually went into labor with her on February 29, 2000 but she decided to put off an appearance until St. David's Day!
The carnations behind her were from the two younger boys; her older sister Kotch spoiled her all day; her at-college brother and half-sister both called her to wish her many blessings of the day; and she received cards and wonderful gifts and wishes.
What a treat this child is! Many, many blessings to our little String Bean!
