The one where it's E's Birthday!16:23
Last week, my youngest daughter turned EIGHT years old. Yes, I can't quite believe it either. Where does time go? How do they grow up so fast? Crazy isn't it!
Ellie opened some of her cards and presents before school. She was super excited!
She went off to school quite happy and excited to hand out her sweet treats to her class mates and tell everyone that she got a Cayla doll for her Birthday! She had wanted a Cayla doll for a long time! You can imagine how pleased she was with her. Bless.
My sister and I spent the entire day baking cupcakes. All different flavours and decorations. Gosh, it took us literally ALL day. I think we made well over 50 cupcakes. The brownies and cookies didn't turn out so well (no idea why!) though.
After school, Ellie was excited to open more of her presents and cards & wait patiently for people to arrive for her little tea party! She had a little ride on her new bike while waiting for the party to begin. I'm so proud that Ellie rides her bike so well (no stabilizers!).
A couple of her school friends came around and we played some party games and had lots to eat! Ellie was a little bit overwhelmed when it came to everyone singing happy Birthday, she cried all the way through it while snuggling into me, bless her. Everyone had a really fab time and enjoyed celebrating Ellie's 8th Birthday with us.
Overall she had a lovely Birthday! She enjoyed everyone's company, got some lovely gifts and was super tired by the end of the day. And I am so proud of her. I love watching her grow up and kind of hate it at the same time. It's bittersweet (I feel like I say that A LOT!)
