On Friday night, Little Lucy spent the night to celebrate her 8th birthday, which is actually today. Happy Birthday, Lucy!
I picked her up and we went to Stations of the Cross, during which she was very well-behaved! Then we went home and ate macaroni and cheese and played Candy Land. Afterward, she took a bubble bath in our jacuzzi (the highlight of staying at my house!). Finally, we ended the night with Edy's Thin Mint ice cream and a movie.
On Saturday we woke up early and ate a big breakfast of Lucy's choice (pancakes, bacon, orange juice, eggs and toast...and she ate it all!) in our bathrobes and towels on our heads, which she got a real kick out of. Then we dressed up to go see "Madeline" as performed by the local youth ballet.
After the wonderful ballet, we treated ourselves to Coney Island, but our bellies were still a little full from breakfast so we didn't eat very much and went shopping to get Lucy some barrettes and to Shoe Carnival.
