Morgan Laux has been looking forward to her 12th birthday for two years now. Not just for the sleepover party she would finally be allowed to have or because she would be the first to have a birthday in her family's newly remodeled farm house.
It's because she's turning 12 today on Dec. 12, 2012.
"I am super excited because I have never had a birthday like this," Morgan said.
Morgan, a sixth-grader and athlete at Fatima Elementary School in Westphalia, has always been a bright student, according to her grandmother, Fran Laux.
