Happy Birthday Dear Sophie

Sophie is four! It was a pretty busy week for us.  I went to a conference in Washington, DC for the first part of the week, and flew back on Wednesday in time to pick Sophie up from school.  We celebrated at home with just the four of us and had cake and ice cream and opened presents.




On Saturday we hosted a small party for three of her friends from Montessori.  Lucia was in charge of games, and she took her job very seriously.  

Sophie and her best friend from school, Zoey.


Since the girls wore their favorite dress-up costumes (all princesses), Sophie decided they needed a king.  So John got to be the king.

More cake!  Happy Birthday, Sophie! We love you. xoxo

Shopping List

Sophie got another stomach bug and had a rough couple of days, but happily she is back to normal today.  After puking across three rooms in the middle of the night, we set her up with a bucket the next day that she carried everywhere.


I took Lucia and Maya to see the University of Utah women's gymnastics team compete.  Lucia was inspired and she liked the floor routines the best.  

I found this little scrap of paper in the kitchen yesterday and I thought it was probably just Lucia playing restaurant or something. So I asked her what is was, and she said, "Oh, that's just the shopping list that dad and I made when we went to the store the other day."

When I'm 100

Lucia had to draw this self portrait of what she thinks she'll look like when she's 100.

Chickadee dee dee dee dee

We took the girls skiing at Snowbird this weekend (the beginner run is called Chickadee). Sophie took her first rides on the chairlift and Lucia did awesome learning to make some turns.

January Sun

The weather cooperated for our long weekend. It was in the 50s on Sunday, so we decided to check out the zoo in winter since we've only ever been in summer.

7th Birthday Fun

My New Years baby is seven! She got to celebrate her birthday twice -- once on the 1st with her cousins in Wisconsin for a bowling party.  Then this weekend in Utah she had a gymnastics party with some friends here.

Lunch in Florence with dad and great grandma (and lots of cousins, not pictured)

New Years's Eve/Birthday sleepover with Jaelyn and Addisyn.


Birthday morning muffin.


Bowing party!  David and Jaelyn.



This is pretty much what Sophie thought of bowling.  #notimpressed

Fiona, on the other hand, was thrilled about bowling and her first new year.

Birthday donuts AND cupcakes.  Lucky kids.

On the flight back to Utah.  Before things got really, really bad. #Sophieisaterribletraveler

Here's a little video of Lucia and Sophie on the trampoline.
