It's great to be 8! Happy Birthday Isabel!
We've begun the day with some fun. We opened the gift from Grandma & Grandpa Mac that they sent. What a beautiful outfit!
For quite a while now, Isabel has been looking forward to getting her ears pierced. We had to wait until she was 8. I think it is an appropriate age--she's a little young lady now and it is very cute and pretty. She was so excited! She could hardly wait until Claire's opened up at 10:00am this morning. I found that I too was excited and had to make sure I didn't speed to get there. Isabel was really brave. It hurt a bit but she was all fine in just a minute or two, and now she's so happy and can't stop looking at her ears in the mirror. I'm so happy for her! We bought her a few pairs of dainty and elegant earring for future use. I'm all about "age appropriate" activities, clothing and now earrings. What we got are definitely appropriate.
(I LOVE it!)
Then, as a surprise to Isabel, I took her and got her a manicure. She is a little lady today. She feels pretty and it shows. That's a nice feeling...isn't it!
Tonight, she's going with the family and a couple of close friends to Chuck E Cheese's (it wouldn't be an Ellertson-kid-birthday without a trip there)! We look forward to that too. What a day. And she even still has her baptism to look forward to.
