We started off her Birthday Weekend with Ice Cream cones on the patio, Friday night
She started talking about what she wanted to do for her birthday party, I think, when I was still pregnant with Mason. Anticipating the craze of a newborn, the 4th child and planning and hosting a 2nd grader's birthday. I did what any mother would do, convinced her to have a PJ movie birthday party ;)
We had breakfast for dinner--french toast with Strawberries and we watched SING! Part way through we paused it and had a dance party and I pulled out a few games I used to play with/teach my students. It was a great time. Sally has wonderful friends, such good kids with marvelous manners!
Headed outside for ice cream and opening presents. Emma thought it was fun to hang with the big girls
Sunday we went to Mass. We're going to be sad to see our NET team leave :(
One last pic without earinngs
On her birthday on Monday, she woke up to a scavenger hunt, a favorite birthday tradition. The last gift was a new gear bike, she was so excited and surprised!
Asked for a quick sibling picture before heading to school
Life is great when you're 8!
Catch up from other days :)
Libby couldn't be more ready!
Mason continues to be the best little newborn. He loves to blow raspberries all day long and only stops when he discovers that he can move toys! [VIDEO]
And that's a wrap on our celebrations, 2 birthdays, Easter, a Baptism and a 1st Holy Communion! Happy May!
