Ashlyn's 8th Birthday

We celebrated Ashlyn's 8th birthday today (two days early) and went to CB's Cupcakes at the mall. This place is so cute! Ashlyn invited 5 of her friends and they decorated cupcakes together. The theme was Harry Potter (what else?) so the cupcakes were red velvet with yellow (gold) buttercream frosting. The girls had a lot of fun putting all kinds of toppings on their individual cupcakes. Ashlyn included red and yellow gummy bears on hers.

I love the decor!
Ashlyn in her special chair. I want to make one
for my scrapbook room! It has chiffon ruffles
all around the bottom, like a tutu!

Opening gifts at home.

This is an inside family joke... we got Ashlyn a Snuggie!
She thinks it's totally great and plans on using
it tonight while she reads.

She was so excited to get her very own
(PINK!!) iPod! We pre-loaded it
with all of her favorite music from The Beatles
to Gwen Stefani.

Listening to "Dani California"
Wearing her Snuggie. Haha!! (And little
brother being silly)

We feel so lucky to have such an amazing daughter. She's intelligent, funny, beautiful, and caring. Ashlyn has a very important role in our family and she fits it perfectly. We love you so much Ashlyn!!! Happy Birthday.

Thanks for the birthday wishes. Ashlyn is thrilled to be 8.

The snuggie thing is just something that we all saw when it was on tv and we just busted up laughing at how silly it is every time we saw it. The commercials are just hilarious, showing a lady wearing it while she holds a dog and then a baby. (Really? It's so cold that you need a blanket but the baby doesn't?) She really actually likes it though. She snuggles up in it before bedtime every night to read Harry Potter.
