Our sweet girl celebrated her 8th birthday this week! She was extra excited because that meant no more booster seat in the van! She was spoiled with three separate parties... one with her girl cousins (and a violin cake), one with her boy cousins (and a yummy carrot cake) and one at home on her actual birthday. She decided that she wanted a horse cake for her third party. She also decided that she wanted to make it herself! And so she did. We googled horse cakes and found this one...
The reins are made out of bubble tape:)
Some of her birthday gifts included a baby doll (she plays with dolls more now than she did as a toddler!), Melissa and Doug wooden doll, Gigi movies, awesome new clothes (she's starting to love fashion like her daddy!), boots, shoes, nail polish, and some $$.
We are SO BLESSED to have this little girl in our lives. Can't believe I've been a mommy for 8 years! She's blossoming into a beautiful young lady:)
