We started celebrating a few days before her birthday since Jared would be gone on her actual birthday. We grilled hamburgers and hotdogs for supper and let her open a small gift. Here's a video of her opening the gift (bracelet making kit).
Last day as a SEVEN year old!
Silly and seven! While Jared was out of town, I let each kid (well, not Zeke) sleep with me one night. Arabelle wanted to wake up on her birthday in my bed, so she slept with me the night before her birthday. She was a *little* excited.
Still dark outside, but too excited! Birthday pancakes and presents on her birthday, September 20th!
Zeke was up too. :)
I had planned a girls day out for Arabelle and I. Our sitters came at 10:30 and Arabelle spent the morning counting down the time. :)
First she got a hair cut and her nails painted.
Then we picked up her birthday donuts (what she chose instead of cake). She wanted caramel donuts for herself and we got some glazed and chocolate too.
We looked around a Belks some and tried on their fashion jewelry, then went to a local restaurant to eat lunch. She thought it was so fancy!
We had so much fun on our outing!
After the little kids napped, we picked up a milk shake before she had swim, then we met Papaw and Mamaw at Johnny's Pizza for ANOTHER celebration.
Donuts and candles one more time. :)
I can't believe how quickly the last 8 years have gone by. She's half way to driving!
