I thought it would be fun to do an “eight for eight” post with the eight best pictures of the day… but then I thought, “who am I kidding?!” I take way too many pictures and like to share them all. So, here is a look at Miss Eve’s 8th birthday.
My customary birthday display. The kids now come to expect them. I like to add my own gifts, but also little things from other people, like the cat card from Greg and Kathy, and the Happy Birthday note from the Kirkwoods. Lots of love for Eve from around the country.
Happy Birthday Eve!!
I got her some books, some science and craft idea kits, and an American Girl matching outfit. Lex got her a Lego Friends set. She was pretty happy with all of it.
I love Lex’s look in this picture. :)
I tried several times today to get a nice picture of the two of us together. This one obviously didn’t work out.
This isn’t quite right either! :)
After school we had two friends over. I fed them all snack then we headed to the science museum!
I mostly like this picture. Great sunlight and color. However, where are Eve’s eyes?! Pictures with glasses are tough!
The museum has several great new exhibits! We had a great time!
Eve wanted to go to Panera Bread for her birthday dinner. I told her she could get a birthday treat and she chose a strawberry smoothie “all to myself!” Normally when she gets a smoothie the rest of us share it with her, but tonight she had one, with whipped cream, all to herself.
I really wanted a nice picture of us together so I finally recruited Alan to help. The back camera on my phone is much better than the front camera!
We all got a little silly.
Daddy wanted in on the picture too! :)
Happy Birthday to Eve! We are pretty lucky to have her in our lives!
