She’s 8 and Great!

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Kimberly Van Diepen



My baby is 8 today.  I need time to stop! I love this sassy thing.  I love how she wiggles her bootie and dances around the house so happy.  I love how she is so giving and caring.  She amazes me.  I just love her so much. Had to get that off my chest. 

So Saturday was the big party.  A total of 6 little girls were able to come and WOW are girls loud.  Add Justin Bieber to the mix and now we are talking really loud.  <sigh> It was hilarious watching them sing his songs and they knew EVERY word.  I just laughed and Brandon just shakes his head.  It was too much for him.  I was getting bummed when I couldn't find someone to make a JB birthday cake.  Then the Prince came up with a brilliant idea.  This is why I call him the Prince.  Check this out:

I made cupcakes and The Prince worked some Photoshop magic.  Brilliant.  Bye Bye Selena Gomez… Hello Alexis.  I hope JB doesn't mind.  I'm sure if he could have seen the smile on her face when she figured out it was her wrapped around his arm HE would of smiled too.  She was over the moon.  She really didn't ask for much for this party.  She wanted a JB cake, slumber party and then ONE more thing.  She wanted Daddy to "cater" the party in a Tuxedo! Oh good grief! Seriously, Alexis? There is just something to say about Daddy's and their daughters! You know he is wrapped around her little fingers.

He put that uniform on and you can see from a side view what kind of smile that brought.  I was standing on the other side saying, "hubba hubba!"  There is something to say about a man in uniform.  Thanks Alexis… it was great for me too!

Time for me to get in the bed.  It's been a jammed packed weekend.  I have lots to get ready for Leadership in Nashville this coming week.  Working out some last minute details of my travel plans and shoes.

More news tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Oh… Just one more pic.  She just makes me giggle!!!

  4. She is so cute!  What an awesome birthday party for her!  You are such incredible parents, she will never forget that.

  5. How sweet! Love your card and your dear husband for doing that for his daughter! She is a doll! Had to laugh at the JB…my winning group of 2nd graders ate lunch in the classroom with me today and I "HAD" to play Justin Beiber on Pandora on my iPhone for them! The group was 4 girls and 1 out-voted boy! lol!

  6. I loved this.  Your baby girl is so cute.  I loved the "waiter" and card is nice.  Those cupcakes…I can almost taste them and want one right now…

  7. again, thank you for sharing a moment of memories….wow, you 2 are up for the grammy award of parents-of-the-year!!

  8. OK – this seriously made me cry!  I thought of my Dad and it brought back memories of my childhood days.  What a beautiful family you have and of course they have a beautiful Mommy ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. There is just something so special about kids and their birthdays…the innocence, the fun, the thrill of the unexpected and the girls and their dads (especially in a uniform!!!).  Obviously everyone had a fabulous time….   Love her card and the pictures.  Thanks for sharing these  special and wonderful moments with us!
