The crazy life of the ClarkClan. Living a life of grace through Jesus Christ.

Yesterday was Rebekah's 7th birthday.  Hard to believe the "baby" ("don't call me that, I am not a baby") is 7. Rebekah is so much fun, kind of crazy and has very strong ideas about what she likes.  We always say she keeps us on our toes.  You never know what she is going to come up with, both to do or say.  In our house we always say Rebekah's motto is "It is better to ask forgiveness, than ask permission". 
     Rebekah has a "thing" for flip-flops.  I have never bought her a pair.  I have an aversion to little girls in flip-flops. Kind of weird I know, but it is one of my little quirks.  That being said, my youngest child talks about them all the time.  She notices them on everyone, looks for them in stores and is always trying to wear her big sisters (who, by the way, hates them).  So, when Sarah and I were looking for a cake to make for her, we found this flip-flop cake.  We knew it was perfect, and kept it a secret from her.  She loved the cake, but even more, she loved the pair of flip-flops I bought her.  She seemed to have a great birthday. At her party, she was able to have her other request of a pinata.  We had kids of all ages come and help her take a whack at it, from 3 months up to her big brother of 17.

               Friends, Fun, and Flip-Flops  What could be better?

Happy Birthday Rebekah. Maybe the never knowing what she will do or so goes along with the "flip-flop" idea LOL
