The first was with the Sherwood family when we celebrated October birthdays on a Sunday night.

The next celebration was the day after her birthday, when we had her on a Tuesday night. She chose Chinese food for dinner and opened up a lot of clothes, shoes, and a new scooter.
The third celebration was when she was baptized!
Leading up to the baptism...
Grandma Price made her a dress in the style and colors Sophie picked out. We snapped a few pics (nicer ones with a prettier background still to come!) for her invitation...
... and sent out a cute baptism announcement
Sophie was so excited for her baptism day! After counting down the days it was finally time.

Thanks to everyone who came to support Sophie! A few family members left before we got this picture but she had a big crowd there for her!
It was a big month for our family and so special to watch each of these 8-year-olds be baptized!
We celebrated at home later that night with our family and Grandma Price.
Each of the latex balloons in the picture below had a note inside for Sophie to read. The notes were cute stories about Sophie or things we love about her. As she popped each balloon and read the note inside, she had to guess who wrote that note.
She was so funny as she popped the balloons. She would close her eyes and look the other way!
After reading the notes, Sophie said "those were really sweet" and Russ told her that's because she's really sweet. It's true - Sophie is such a sweet 8 year old!
