Our girlie turned 8 this month, and we had lots of fun celebration! It started the week before her birthday, with a trip to the "American Girl" store to have her doll, Molly's ears pierced. We surprised K. by letting her get her own ears pierced that day too!
Then on her actual birthday, we had dinner with both sets of grandparents, with cake, ice-cream and presents:
And finally, about a week later, we had three of her best friends over for a sleep-over party!
These are sun-catchers we made from melting pony beads, a great craft for the morning after the sleep-over!
I think everyone would agree it was a good birthday!
