Happy Birthday Leah

Yesterday was my Lovely Leah's 8th birthday.  I can hardly believe I have two kids over the age of 8 now.  Where does the time go?  She had a really fun day doing all the things she wanted to do.  It started off with a yummy breakfast made my my awesome husband.  She really wanted a fruit salad with a special sauce to go over it.  So that's what she got!  Jordan got up at 5:15 to make it since the kids are out the door at 7 AM for school.  For lunch Jordan and I both went to her school and brought her lunch.  It was so fun to be with her, despite all the gawking children admiring (or being horrified by) my enormous tummy!  After school Leah went to a friend's house to play, then came home to her favorite dinner of chicken enchiladas, Mexican rice and salad.  Then onto the cake- I did a homemade white cake with blue frosting since it's her favorite.  I did some of the batter into cones too for a little extra fun.  My parents came for the festivities.  It's so nice to have them so close!!  Then on to present time.  I put together a sewing kit for Leah as well as a pot-holder making kit, a paper-doll set and some blue crocs.  She loved all her presents and has been busy making bean-bags today.  So overall a success!  I love this girl and am so grateful to have her in my home.  She is the peace-maker of the household, trying to smooth things over for everyone.  She is very, very affectionate and sweet and wants to please.  She really is a good girl.  Anyway, here are some pics of the big day...

Great day! I'm sorry I didn't call her to congratulate. I hope you guys are all doing well--life seems to be moving forward for all of us in diverging directions.

Oh wow! She sure does look big considering the last time I saw her in person she was four months old! Crazy. You look AMAZING by the way! We should all be so lucky to be so svelte with such an adorable belly popping out =) Many blessings and can't wait to see those little ladies in real life! Love you!
