On Monday, November 21st this sweet, kind, tenderhearted, amazing, loving, creative girl turned 8!
It is hard to believe she is really that old!
Arabella is a huge part of what holds our family together.
With the whole week of school off for Thanksgiving, she got to sleep in a bit and then started her day with her breakfast of choice- Monkey bread.
She was excited for her chocolate making kit and several new clothing items.
She has really wanted a bathrobe and slippers and thanks to her cousins her wish came true! She has worn them both so much this past week.
And finally, after much waiting and anticipation she was able to get her ears pierced. It hurt a bit more than she thought it would and her ears were really sensitive for the first day but she has toughened up since and remembers to clean them all by herself.
We finished her big day by attending the city library's really big Harry Potter Party!
There was an animal show, wand making, quill making, scavenger hunts, lightning bolt tattoos, photo booths, trivia, owl origami, and more.
Arabella has read the first two Harry Potter books this year and has started on the third. She is loving them! I love that she loves to read so much!
And for her final request, we had ravioli for dinner with spaghetti squash. Her birthday dessert was tiger striped fudge with Blue Bell Hot Chocolate flavored ice cream!
She had a great day! We love you so much Arabella!
