My baby girl turned 8 on Friday! She has had a great time celebrating her birthday. All her classmates made handmade cards for her, I tried to make all the foods she requested all week. We do birthday week at our house, less pressure for that one little day to be perfect! Two of her grandparents visited on her birthday, and aunt, uncle and cousins came yesterday to spend the day playing. It has been a low-key but fun birthday weekend. Which is good, since she's kinda under the weather.
She requested chocolate beet cupcakes, boston cream pie and homemade ice cream.
I made her the customary birthday pj pants. Sorry for the blurry photo (have to blame the hubby!) The fabric is camo with basketballs, baseballs and soccerballs. She was at the fabric store with me a few weeks ago and wanted that fabric, she didn't know I had already bought it for her!
She also got a youth .22. You can see she was thrilled. That morning she had asked her dad, "Can I get a .22 for my 9th birthday?)
We were shooting the toy arrows at the pinata!
Our girl is growing up fast and has become such a responsible, caring and thoughtful person this year.
