This week I turned eight. It wasn’t so bad after all. I celebrated throughout the entire week. Grandma Susie dropped by and brought me a really cool Kylo Ren Star Wars shirt.
I was SO excited. He is my favorite character from the new Star Wars movie.
When Dad was in Ohio we had a little friends party at the park by the house. We decorated in a Star Wars theme. I didn’t want cake, as usual, so we had cookies.
Grandma Susie was silly and tried to pogo stick!
My “I am 8” sarcastic eye-roll.
I was so excited that so many friends could come to my last minute party.
Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie came over for my evening-before-my-birthday party. We opened family gifts and sang Happy Birthday.
I got a really new Kylo Ren mask that I refuse to take off.
Daddy made a chocolate dragon cake. The dragon was guarding the gold coins. We didn’t have a candle so we used a giant match!
Last evening as a seven year old.
On my actual birthday we went to Legoland. The place was fairly empty and we got to ride all the rides we wanted. I willingly went on a roller coaster.
Here is my official “I am eight” photo.
We had a great time at Legoland and not have passes to go back all year.
I guess eight won’t be that bad, at least not yet!
