I can't believe you are eight years old! This year all you asked for was a new bike and books!
This year for your party, you asked to have a sleepover with your best friends. Easy peasy. We took you guys swimming at the hotel pool in town, we lucked out, and ended up having the whole place to ourselves.
You wanted an ice cream sundae bar instead of cake this year! That went over well;-)
It was a great party! I am so grateful that you have such sweet friends.
