It's Gr8 to be 8!!!
Just recently our little lady celebrated her eighth birthday, and as most of her classmates were having parties this year, her mother decided she should do likewise. Thankfully, the weather was perfect and the girls all had a wonderful time. It was decided to only ask the girls from her class and after-school care. Of course, the main attraction was the jumping castle, a real hit.
And what birthday would be complete without the gift opening. I thought this pose was just typical of girls, so had to include it. All we could hear were giggles most of the day. They are all lovely little ladies and seem to get along really well.
The egg and spoon race was fun too - the guest of honour doing her best to get to the finish line without losing her egg. If you look closely, you will see her faithful little dog supervising proceedings. Unfortunately, the 'race' was held in an area where the background seemed to be the 'service' area, sorry!!
And, of course, the birthday cake. The order was a chocolate cake, with purple icing, green writing and lots of sprinkles. I think the store did a great job of interpreting the dream, and it certainly went down well....yum.
This photograph seemed to sum up the day's activities. It was very tiring for one of the guests, and all I can say is he was 'dog tired'. He is her constant companion, but he just couldn't take anymore!!!!!
I must say a big thank you to those friends who have emailed me about my previous post. Blogger has been in a rather belligerent mood lately, and some people have been unable to leave comments. I feel privileged to receive personal notes of encouragement - people making time to pass on such lovely comments despite difficulties. Your support means so much to me.
