some of Emilea's good friends were eager to jump in for a quick pic. I could really tell that they had all made her feel like the most special birthday girl
and of course her sisters tried in their little ways to make the day special...well Tiara did anyways. Kaiella actually tried with all of her might to hijack it lol! Every time we have had a card or gift for Emy to open, and even when it has been time to sing and have cake she jumps in with "it is MY birthday... I am a grown up now" we keep telling her it will be another time for her special birthday, but she is convinced that she has left 2 years old in the dust. LOL!
We went out to Boston Pizza with our really good friends Kris and Kristie and their three boys to "party" and she got to stand up on her seat while the staff sang to her and gave her a HUGE brownie for dessert. A good good 8th birthday I would say.
**oh and I have to add a quick note for our family: she really enjoyed opening gifts and cards that were sent from some of the grandparents and friends, so thank-you guys very much for your kindness it really made her feel loved from every corner of the globe!
