Our sweet Chess was not looking forward to turning 8. 7 is her favorite number, so she said she wanted to stay 7 forever. She wanted to find a way to Neverland, but that didn't work out, so now she is 8. She had a good birthday though! I gave her the star sapphire ring that my mom gave me, that belonged to her when she was young. She also got a jewelry box. Mrs. Barron led a silly birthday song for her, and I brought the sugar cookies we made to her class. She wanted to eat dinner at Burger King, so we did. Then we had ice cream at Baskin Robbins. Happy 8th Birthday, Chess!
