It has been an exhausting fall, but we managed to celebrate Maggie turning 5 in grand style, with a real princess, which thrilled her.  Maggie collected many books and toys to donate to CHaD and Toys for Tots.  Her generous and kind spirit is one of the many things I admire about Maggie.  She is funny, quirky, and silly.  She freely bestows hugs and smiles on nearly everyone, is so quick to share her toys with her brother and sister, and cousins, and is always willing to help out with chores.  She can also have quite the temper, be very stubborn, and insist on doing things her way.  Happy 5, my baby, keep growing strong and true.
