It must get old hearing me say “time flies” or me proclaiming how stunned I am about the speed at which my kids are growing… but truly I feel like life is full of “how did I get here?” moments. And today was definitely one of those. As I sat at our special luncheon to celebrate Rebekah’s birthday. I had many a flashback to that sweet little bundle of squishiness, our first born baby that catapulted me into this amazing journey called motherhood. Seven? Really seven?

Early morning… our family tradition continues to go strong. Doughnuts and gifts in bed!

Rebekah was, over the top, giddy with excitement for today. I’m talking THE MOST EXCITED I HAVE EVER SEEN HER.

So excited for her friends. So excited for everything.

She was in heaven.

I am blessed that Rebekah’s dearest friends also have incredible mommies who are two of MY dearest friends!

Anna did such a great job. Keeping up with the big girls today. She was so eager to be a part of everything.

She  was also very intent on collecting all the “free” daisies… she wanted cousin Annika to take them home to her mommy.

The birthday girl.

And the guy that made it all happen! Seriously he was super dad today (and everyday). Taking pictures, and enduring all the girliness to be a part of his little lady’s special day.

And this is what “crashing” looks like. She was too tired to think straight.
