This not so little girl just turned 8. I can't believe it! It seems like just a little while ago we had her 1st birthday. And here she is 8 and making such good choices. For her birthday we celebrated with spaghetti and meatballs - Anne's choice. Then we sent her on a treasure hunt for each of her presents. That was fun. She was so gracious and thankful for each present (even the new underwear). Of course there was cake and ice cream. I think the highlight of the day was the mystery gift that was left by the front door early that morning. She was thrilled to find leis (she is wearing them all in the above picture) and the makings for a lot of balloon fun. We suspect our wonderful neighbor but I guess we will never know. We love our Anne!
