Ash is EIGHT! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
Well, our baby girl is the big 8! I'm not sure how big a deal 8 is, but to her it was a huge deal! She loved every second of being the focus of the day (as well, she should!)...but boy was that the busiest bday-day we have ever had! Crazy. We didn't even get home and do cake and presents til after 9pm. And she was a trooper for not being home from 8am-8:30pm. Poor girl. Wednesdays are just our busiest and we actually skipped half our activities...but still had 3 to go to and one was a county XC meet that went on for hours! She was a good sister to cheer her big sis on while I know she wanted to be celebrating her bday. But thankfully it was a gorgeous day out! Ash was in all her glory. She loved her Shopkins dress, loved her bday donut/strawberry bfast, her free pizza lunch (with free teddy bear from the Pizza Hut guy!), Shopkins cookie cake with her class, Red Robin dinner (with free sundae!), her cupcake shopkin cake and lots more fun stuff! Busy or not, we made the best of it! Love this sweet girl...and the beautiful girl she is inside and out. She is so smart, so vibrant, so loving, so happy and so full of life. Love her so much. And love how she is a friend to everyone and always so chatty and smiley. She brings such life to our family. So grateful for her birth 8 years ago (fyi, she would not fully celebrate til 830am when we were on the way to school...bc that is the EXACT time she was born...she is big on being exact lately! lol :)) Ashley Claire...you are the best youngest daughter a mama could have. Happy Bday, girl!
