On October 26th, Emily turned 8! Eight seems so big to me!
We let her open one gift a day early--she can be very persuasive. My budding artist was thrilled to open a new set of supplies and a real sketch book.
Her birthday happened to fall on the same day as the fall party at school, so she enjoyed fun, games, and treats on her birthday. She also got to wear the special birthday hat while her classmates sang "Happy Birthday" to her.
The day after her birthday, both sets of grandparents came to help her celebrate.

The afternoon was filled with family fun and lots of smiles! Emily will be having a party with her friends this week (we scheduled it on Election Day because they are out of school), but celebrating with the ones she loves most is always special!
