The end of one year and the beginning of the next is always a whirlwind of activity for our family. Samantha's birthday is always the culmination of two weeks' worth of fun!
Can she really be 8? It seems like not too long ago that my water broke and she came roaring into the world.
We started off her birthday at the Crepery, the morning after the Blizzard of 2017 (aka...it snowed in St. George).
The stairs were not only covered in snow, but iced over as well. Consider that my first adventure of the new year.
We had a late lunch at McDonald's with Kira & Kylie.
The festivities for that day ended with cereal for dinner and a private viewing of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade".
Needless to say, Sam was thoroughly satisfied by the end of the day.
But wait! There's more!
You can't forget the PARTY OF THE YEAR!!!
Pew! Pew! (That's my blaster.) It's a Star Wars party!
Samantha had her nearest and dearest friends alongside as we sang Happy Birthday.
She described it as one of the best birthdays ever. Considering there are 8 under her belt so far, I will agree!
Go forth, my sweet, vivacious daughter and keep on keepin' on.
