This past week, my precious girl turned 8!!! I just can't believe it that this little nugget:
has been a part of my life for almost a decade! She is such a happy soul and makes us laugh daily...actually, more like hourly!
Lily was very successful at stretching her birthday out for a week! We first celebrated at our favorite Mexican restaurant on Saturday....
Feliz Cumpleanos, Lily!
Then we celebrated on the 16th at home with what else, but...take out Chinese!
She wanted me to surprise her with the desert, so I made her favorite "petit fours" (I use that term very loosely!)
The birthday week concluded with her big celebration this past Saturday with her friends at the skating rink!
This blonde haired cutie is Abby. She and Lily Clare have been friends since 3 yr old preschool. But even better, they share the same birthday and were born in the same hospital! So, we can only imagine that they were next to each other in their incubators starting their friendship!
Lily requested a red velvet cake...complete with cream cheese icing!!!
Such a fun time and such a sweet group of girls! Happy Birthday my sweet Lily!
May all of your birthday wishes come true~
P.S. The birthday princess was brought back to reality when we went in for her dental check-up. Someone needed a couple of teeth pulled to make room for the adult teeth coming in. Guess who?!?!
