More birthday wishes

It seems like the whole month of May is one big tribute to Kylie (spoiled). First it was her party weekend, then it was her birthday weekend, and next is her baptism weekend and every day in between is filled with planning, shopping and preparing. But she deserves it (most of the time). Along with the age comes a roller coaster of emotions, the idea that it's cooler to spend hours in the loft by herself watching "Hannah Montana" and "Wizards of Waverly Place", the intense need to blast Radio Disney jams and dance in her room, her preference of clothes instead of toys for her birthday and being completely convinced that she can't live without deoderant and a bra (bless her heart, if she has my genes she may never need a bra). Fortunately, she is also at the age where not only is she a huge help and Maddox's second (and much nicer) mother, she is also like my best friend. She loves shopping with me, staying up and having girl talks and she even tells jokes that are actually funny. I really wanted to take Kylie to a hotel before her birthday and have a heart to heart talk about how she will no longer be allowed to wear sleeveless, she should start fasting, she should be reading her scriptures every day and pretty much just convince her that Eight is Great! She would have loved it. Every weekend was booked up so instead I surprised her and checked her out of school and we spent the afternoon going to lunch, doing some birthday shopping and getting milkshakes, it was so much fun. We may butt heads at times, but I really love that girl! We spent her actual birthday doing alot of eating since there's not much else you can do on a Sunday. Strawberry crepes for breakfast, egg drop soup for lunch (her request) and steak for dinner (she makes her father proud). We sure love you, Kylie, happy birthday!!

Happy Birthday, Kylie! You are getting so big! You are such a sweet, beautiful and talented girl! We all love you so much and can't wait to see you this summer!

Jamie, I love your lunch and shopping date. What a fun mom!!! I am always taking notes and copying your ideas, you know. I've kind of slacked off on the birthday interviews. Reading Kylie's reminded me how precious they are though. I think I might have to go do a retroactive interview with Parker. I love the steak and star wars answers from Kylie's interview. She's going to be some guys dream come true some day:)

Happy Birthday Kylie! I am actually a little excited for the day when Madison will want clothes instead of toys, I am getting sick of un-played with toys lying around! I love the birthday interview and chat about all the great things that come with turning 8. They are getting so big!
