Making Memories

Abigail’s Luau Party

This past weekend we celebrated Abigail’s 8th birthday.  I loved the theme and had so much fun decorating.  Saturday morning when she woke up she felt a little under the weather, but by the time her party started she was ready to celebrate.

Yesterday I posted Abigail’s 8th Birthday Interview ( be sure to check it out because this is my favorite birthday tradition)

Before her friends arrived we gave her our presents.  She asked for a few very specific items and her reaction each time she opened a present was priceless!!

The awesome Wubble ball – that already has a hole!!

She has been dying to get this game…and I’m sure we’ll be playing it sometime this week.

And finally a camcorder!  She has been asking for a camcorder for almost 6 months!  Little does she know this camcorder is ours that we bought 14 years ago.  We may have a little Steven Spielberg or Ron Howard on our hands.  Thank goodness she doesn’t know how to upload to YouTube yet!

We snapped a quick family picture before the girls jumped into the pool.

Then 18 of Abigail’s closest friends arrived for a fun afternoon of swimming.

Abigail wanted to put on her hula skirt before we sang Happy Birthday and opened presents…
