Therese turned 10 on Friday. 4/4/04...love that birthdate!
Since Thursday, she has been partying hard. Starting with getting her ears pierced...

Johnny wins the prize for master hip swinger...and he hasn't even had much time to practice...yet.
We ramped up the celebrating with Coffee Toffee Cheesecake and Lemon Meringue Cake...
