Happy Belated July 4th!

I'm a little behind on my's how we spent our 4th of July......
swimming and eating at my mom and dad's house!

And let me tell you, Sophia is a little fish now. That extra week of swim lessons really helped give her confidence.

Uncle Tim was trying to show her how to do a really big jump.

But she just wasn't getting it....

Still not getting it.

She finally got it! LOL!

Russ and I headed home because we didn't care about seeing fireworks. Sophia stayed behind to watch and Nana brought her home later.

What We Been Up To Lately?

Nails! Lots and lots of nails. My sister Amy got her a nail kit that came with these fake press on Hello Kitty nails and ever since then, Sophia has been eying them during every trip to Target. And with 2 gift cards to Target, she had to buy some!

They are cute but don't stay on very well.
She even wanted to paint her own nails so we set her up in the kitchen on a towel.

We've also been sewing up a storm. I've been making things for my Etsy shop and Sophia declared that she was going to open a pillow shop and sell just pillows. She broke out her "sewing machine" and set to work.

"No more pics mom!"


We've had some disagreements on pricing so we haven't rolled out her pillow line just yet. But Sophia did tell me that I'm a genius for making money. Wise words! :)

Happy Birthday Sweet Sophia!

Sorry I'm so far behind. Who knew my summer would be busier than my school year!
Sophia's actual birthday is June 18th, 2008. So On June 18th, we had her present ready. She had asked for the mini castle for Frozen (Elsa's).

She loved it! We also got her the mini cast of Frozen that didn't come with the castle.

Then it was time for breakfast, pancakes and bacon!

In my family's tradition she gets to pick her color.  She chose purple!

It's almost like it was a trick candle but it wasn't. It just wouldn't blow out.

But bacon made it complete! Cook it in the oven folks! Less mess!

That morning we went to Barnes and Nobles because if you sign up for their kids club, they will get a free dessert from the Starbucks bakery for their birthday.
Plus, through the kids club, once Sophia read 8 books (which took all of 10 seconds), She earned a free book!
Then it was off to swim club at Atty's house!

She was a little unsure but warmed up!

And Atty and Tricia even had a cookie cake for her birthday!

Then in the evening, Aunt C came over for corn dogs (Sophia's Choice).

Then we headed off to my parent's house to swim!

And do cake!

And of course open presents!

And then there was swimming!

What a crazy busy day!  But so fun! Happy birthday Sophia!
