The sun rose and awakened my body. It filled my heart with warmth as I looked over at an 8 year old girl standing next to my bed with a grin reaching ear to ear. Happy Birthday, Alexis.
When I took the dogs out I was greeted with this view, snapped a shot and shared it to Facebook and Instagram.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter. You are the sunshine in my life. You are the rays of light that shine in my heart. You are the gift from God that made me a mother. You have blessed our lives with more love and joy the past 8 years than you will ever know. Happy Birthday!
As requested, Alexis got breakfast in "bed" (sleep over in mom's room) with her American girl doll.

After breakfast and presents we headed out in San Diego's storm of the year and went bowling

The sky was so amazingly beautiful on our drive home
When we got home and the skies cleared we saw so much snow on the mountain. Proof that it snows in San Diego.
We had a wonderful day filled with so much laughter and family time!
Happy Birthday Alexis!
