Lydia celebrated her 8th birthday this week. This was her year for a family party. She had the privilege of sharing her special day with family that we rarely see that were in from CA for a wedding. We had such a nice time and we will be sharing lots more pictures later. Lydia poses with her flip-flop cake.

Lydia wanted a flip-flop cake. Thanks to internet instructions, we were able to make one together.
Make a wish!

Of course, we had to have some shoes for the party.
Julianna made Lydia a stuffed-animal purse.
She also received a camera. Her CA family gave her a cute watch. The next 2 pictures were taken today on her actual birthday after a piano recital.
More shoes--a lady can not have too many!
Lydia is a special gal. I know she had a wonderful birthday with her extended family.
