CAELI'S BIRTHDAY PARTY... This year we decided to celebrate Caeli's birthday with two smaller parties. On Saturday she invited her school friends to come over for pizza.
Kylie, Maia, Molly and Anna helped her celebrate.
We all went to JUMPSTREET; an indoor trampoline playground.
Holly joined us there.
Kianna had so much fun playing with Lylie.
I can't believe that Caeli is almost 10.
6th GRADE SHOW... The girl's school hired a new music teacher this year. She has worked with them weekly and is presenting a show every week for the next seven weeks. The 6th grade performed on Friday. Mariah had so much fun singing and dancing with her class. I can't believe that she will graduate in a few months.

NINE YEARS AGO TODAY... It is hard to believe that it has been nine years since I traveled to China. I was nervously waiting at our hotel in China when I looked up and saw the most beautiful little girl being carried into the room.
Caeli has come so far since that first day. She's smart, funny, beautiful, talented, inquisitive, outgoing, fearless and her smile lights up a room.
Sometimes I wonder what I did to deserve such a beautiful gift, I love her more each year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011... Ever since the girls were little we have spent New Year's Eve at home. As they are getting older the girls want to be with their friends.


So this year they each invited a friend to spend the night. They arrived at 4:30 on Friday afternoon.

Mariah's friend from school, Gwen came,

Caeli invited Samantha who is in her dance company,

and Kianna had her first sleepover with Cydney. She lives in our neighborhood and goes to school with her.

They had so much fun welcoming in the new year.

Everyone stayed up till midnight.

They threw streamers and lit sparklers.

The girls decorated each other.


Happy New Year

We hope 2011 is a happy and healthy year for everyone.
