Double Digits

Double Digit birthdays require at least a weeks worth of celebrating. Here dad, Sophie and mommy hit the local theater on Saturday morning to see Wreck It Ralph!

Popcorn and soda for lunch? Why not??

Her room was quietly (not so much!) decorated while she slept! Our family tradition is to sing to the person when she/he was born. Because we don't know exactly when she was born, we chose 7am....and here she 7am in all her glory!

On our way to the mall to get her ears pierced!

She was pretty nervous....but the "bigs" lightened things up for her!

Two of her favorite guys in the world!

Ice cream cupcakes....see the number 10 candles...lame right? Yep...

I just love this picture of grown up...I think it's her hair....

Onto the family birthday / Easter party....a new Cinderella dress for "Rosie." ( from her cousin Kristi!)

Time to color the eggs!

And hunt Easter eggs!

Special hugs for Grammy!
Hard to believe she's TEN!!!!

She was SO excited to get those ears pierced!

My silly, goofy girl!

Happy Birthday, dear precious Sophie Rose!

Ephesians 1:5-10 "He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth."
