Last weekend Grandpa and Grandma Leader stopped by and Grandma had made Ashlin a new fleece blanket for her birthday. The new blanket is covered in flowers and matches Ashlin's room.
Grandma also made Ashlin a rice krispy cake and topped it with 7 candles.
Although Ashlin loves her new blanket, she is not quite ready to get rid of "bears". She will cover up with her new blanket while watching TV, but when bedtime rolls around she wants "bears" to go to sleep with. In time we will move to the new blanket, but I will keep "bears" for her in the cedar chest forever.
