Well, two years ago we approached Calla's 5th birthday with a sense of foreboding, a feeling that as soon as the party was done our lives would take a turn for the worse...and of course that is exactly what happened. Yesterday however, we celebrated Calla's 7th birthday at Petland and it was a fun time for all involved.
Calla decided, on her own, that she would like to collect ten dollars (as suggested last year) and keep 5 while donating 5 to the Winnipeg Humaine Society. She is very happy and proud to be donating $80 to our local pet shelter. She is also excited about buying herself something but she hasn't quite figured out what that is yet.
Originally, she had wanted a dog this year and while we weren't totally on board we know that one is definitely in our future so we had some long discussions on responsibility etc. Calla is now thinking that she would like to wait one more year before taking on such a HUGE responsibility!! I have no idea how I ended up with such a level headed and rational little girl but she always surprises me. My brother and I were having a good laugh the other day because we fully acknowledge that we would never have thought twice about the responsibility. We just wanted a dog!! Calla is way more mature that we ever were!! LOL
Enjoy the pictures!
