Piper's 8th Birthday

May 18, 2011, has come and gone. On that day, my baby girl turned 8 years old! Wow! It is almost hard to believe that I have been a Mommy for 8 years now!

Jeremy and I gave Piper her present from us on her actual birthday. Her party was the next day. She was excited to open it.

Piper had asked for a pair of TOMS shoes. 
 Putting them on for the first time...
She had seen one of Seven's friends wearing a pair and said she wanted a pair. Jeremy told her what was so special about TOMS and then Piper really wanted a pair.
This is the box they come it...So, if you don't know anything about TOMS, the box is pretty self explanatory. I thought it was really neat that Piper thought they were even cooler when she found out what TOMS does... 
Piper decided she wanted a pool party for her birthday party.  
We also had a slip and slide set up. 
And if that wasn't enough, Piper and her friends could play on the teeter totter. 
Piper chose to have Hello Kitty cupcakes. Jeremy did an awesome job, if I might say. Piper had invited girls AND boys to her party. So, Piper wanted girl AND boy Hello Kitty cupcakes. The girls have the red bows, like Hello Kitty does. The boys have blue bows. 
A close up of Jeremy's artistic talent.

After cupcakes and opening presents, the kids went back outside to enjoy the pool some more. Rilian and Reagan were playing with the water table. Looks like innocent fun, huh? Well, Rilian was draining the table and Reagan didn't know. She kept adding and adding water, but it never seemed to make a difference. Rilian had pulled the plug and it was draining into a container down below. 
Happy Birthday to my sweet 8 year old, Piper! What a ride you have taken us on. I know it is far from being over. Each day brings new things. You are a blessing to our family. I am thankful that God placed YOU in our family!
