At least it was a month and a half ago! Sareny's birthday fell on "Fashion Friday," which means Lexi does her hair and/or nails all fancy. On this day, Sareny even got to wear makeup. She also had picked out the special birthday badge that she wore all day, which if you look closely, it says, "Kiss me, it's my birthday." I tried to talk her into getting the one that said something about a special birthday, since she did turn eight and all, but she insisted on that one. We're not sure who exactly she wanted to kiss her, but she must have been sending a message to someone. Grammy and Bampa came down that evening, because Sareny was getting baptized the next morning. We got some cupcakes and sang to her.
You can tell from that huge grin on her face that this is a girl who likes being the center of attention. This was her special day!
A couple of weeks later we celebrated with a friend's party. Lexi and I made a strawberry cake and Sareny invited four friends over. We had lasagna and breadsticks, cake and ice cream, and then I loaded the girls up and took them to a nail salon where they each got a pedicure and their nails painted. The girls had so much fun being pampered!
The girls: Sammie, Emily D., Sareny, Emily J., and Bobbie Jo.
What a milestone birthday for Sareny! We are so proud of the smart, kind, beautiful young lady she is growing into.
