We can hardly believe that Norah is already 8.  She had a great party with her family, in which the traditional Brooks family German Chocolate Beet Cake is pictured.  She also chose Red Thai Chicken Curry for dinner.  Hannah helped plan her birthday party with her friends and also made an awesome pink 3-layer cake!  Although Maxwell led the party (because Hannah had to go to ballet).  Maxwell did a great job running Norah’s party, but afterwards he was wiped out.  He’d had enough of 7 screaming little girls.  That’s right, son, now you know why I was so excited when you volunteered to run the party!
