CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - When social distancing kept a little girl from having a birthday party, she found a creative way to celebrate.

Khyla Lanoue lives in West Ashley. On Tuesday, she turned 7 years old.

But since gatherings of people are not a good idea because of COVID-19, Khyla’s mother, Denise, made her daughter a sign she could hold outside their home.

Khyla waved to cars while holding the sign to let people know about her big day.

Even precautions against a pandemic couldn’t stifle her excitement on her birthday!
