Eight is Great

                                           Yesterday, Rebecca turned eight years old!!

She has been counting down the days to her birthday since February!
Finally the day arrived. We started the day with birthday donuts.
We let her open a few gifts and then off to school.
I stopped by school at lunch time and brought cookies for all the kids.

After school we played for awhile and then went for a birthday dinner.
Rebecca wanted Macaroni Grill, so we met up with my parents.
We came back home to open more gifts and have cake and ice cream.
Raphael brought these candles from Panama that are pretty much
little fireworks. Amazing and a little scary too :)

This year, for a "friends" party, we went with "less is more".
Rebecca's first friend at Sage School was Anna and they have been
fast friends.
Last Friday, we took Anna for lunch at Chick-fil-A and then went to a nail salon.
The girls got manicures and I got a pedicure. It was fun to watch and listen to them
chat away and interact with each other.  Thankful that Rebecca has a good friend like Anna.

Hard to believe that Rebecca is eight years old. Time really does fly by. 
We are so proud of her and love her sweet spirit.
