Thing 1 is 8 years old tomorrow! We had her party today and it was so much fun! This is the first year we went with the all-girl party and we had a manicure party. It was a blast-we had fish, bears, bunnies, bees, puppy prints, and butterflies from a nail art book, jewels, glitter, nail stickers-the works!!

The girls were all so sweet and a few of my best friends came over as "stylists" and we just had a great time. It was honestly the best time I've had at a kid's birthday party-lots of fun, lots of giggling, lots of talking+very little mess or effort=great party! I cannot believe how fast we have gone from tiny fists wadding up cake blobs to beautiful, sparkly french manicures, but I have loved all of it. I am blessed to have had 8 wonderful years with my sweet girl!! Happy Birthday, honey!
(Now, if I could just get her to take an interest in knitting with those fancy fingers...)
