Story told by: Lainey
Today was my eighth birthday, and it was a great one!
My first request of the day was to go to Zoe’s for breakfast. This is a sign of how much my parents love me because we lost an hour due to the time change, and they still had us out the door by 7:30 a.m. so we could have breakfast before church!
Henry could not see any reason as to why he might need Mommy’s help cutting his pancakes.
Next to church!
Then piano lessons!
And then once we were home, I requested one of what I have deemed “Daddy’s Famous Sandwiches.” It’s cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, turkey, and lettuce. I guarantee no one else makes them like my dad!
Next up…presents! Here I opened new camera film and an assortment of earrings from Mommy and Daddy.
New books from Grandma and Grandpa!
And new binoculars from Grandma and Grandpa.
I’ve wanted new binoculars for a long time!
Gma and Gpa nailed it with a Fit Bit! I’m so excited!!
Mommy and Daddy also got me the first book in the Harry Potter series! We’ll read this together as a family, and I can’t wait!
Nana and Baba got me a new colored pencil set!
And a great new friendship bracelet kit. I am really loving making jewelry lately!
I spent the afternoon playing with my new toys, including these two new LOL dolls.
Then we went to see the new movie, “Onward.” It was really cute, and we all enjoyed it!
After the movie I spent quite a bit of time out on the deck sightseeing. I hope our neighbors down below us have curtains.
My request was tacos for dinner. My favorite!
And then a chocolate peanut butter cake that Mommy made for me!
It was delicious!
We ended the night by playing, and then reading the first chapter of “Harry Potter.” It was a wonderful day, and I smiled through most of it!
