8 is GREAT

 There is just something about your oldest getting older.  every year it catches me by surprise.  i look at that face and wonder how she is looking so big.  lance made the comment that she is half way to 16 and i almost passed out. 

how do you get from this:

to this??

this year, daddy woke up early and went to get her cinnamon pumpkin pancakes for her breakfast.  it was pretty special.

 later in the day, allie's surprise gift arrived all the way from oklahoma!  she was really surprised!

for dinner we headed to her favorite - Pei Wei

and her grammie and poppy treated the kids to a mini cupcake from this swanky cupcake place.  yum!

she had a painting party with a few close friends.

the girls were soooo quiet while they painted... that is the way to go for a party.  they were so focused!

i'm super sad that i didn't take a picture of all the finished paintings because they were each so good!

after painting, the girls cozied up and watched Saige paints the sky! 

we ended this bday weekend by eating at chicken scratch... best place in dallas to eat!  my favorite!!
