At the birthday party two weeks ago Mabel Watson Payne with a little assistance from her mother opened gifts from the many wellwishers who brought them to the party -- and that was already a lot of gifts. To avoid overload, gifts from local family were postponed. Yesterday was the next occasion after the party when everybody had a chance to get together again, so that is when the remaining presents got opened.
Out of the pink bag from grandmother came a baby doll. Which received an extravagant welcome but so far has no name. Names cannot be rushed into, especially not the name for a person's very first doll. It will be revealed in its own time.
