Because Grace’s birthday fell on a Wednesday, and we had church activities that evening, her celebration was a little spread out.
We began by celebrating Aunt Alonna’s birthday (she was 19 on the 11th) on Tuesday evening, and Grace opened most of her presents at the same time.
The next morning, she awoke to balloons all over her bedroom floor and a sign on the wall that said, “Grace, you’re 8 today!”
After breakfast, all the kiddos sat on the couch, and we made them close their eyes while Luke wheeled in her birthday present. I think she liked it.
We have one more celebration to go, on Sunday, with her dear friend Miss Lindsey, who shares Grace’s birthday.
Happy birthday, Gracie girl! We celebrate you every day in our hearts and prayers, regardless of balloons or streamers! We thank God for you!
