Sophia and Sophie...they met at ballet. :)
One of Sophia's very good friends Blythe. She is just so cute I had to share her picture.
This is a group shot taken by the staff. It's a little grainy/blurry but it will be nice to have in her photo album.
This one made me laugh!
The highly anticipated Princess Cake. She LOVED it!!
After the party was over we rushed back down to Senoia to have Sophia's picture taken with Santa at You're Invited. We got there early and the staff was nice enough to go ahead and let us go first. Sophia loves Santa now..there was a time that if he just looked at her she would cry. Granted I think that time was when she was two and I would have cried as well. :) She got to tell him everything she wanted and even told him about her birthday party. Pictures will come later for that it was a package deal so we have to wait on pics.
After we left Santa we went home to rest for about an hour and then we were off to another birthday party in Fayetteville at Chuck E Cheese. There are also no pictures from this event just because if you have ever been to a Chuck E. Cheese you know how crazy it can get and especially on a Saturday. Sophia did have a lot of fun and got to play almost every game. She was really tired by this point though and we did have a few meltdowns. We left before cake and opening presents because we were meeting Phil in Senoia for the Christmas parade.
Sophia fell asleep in the way home and I think the power nap did her a bit of good because she was acting better at the parade. If you have read my blog for very long you know this is a yearly tradition for us. We have pics of ourselves at this parade from 2005 when we were thinking about having a baby. It is fun to see how we and Sophia have changed every year. Sophia's new tradition is getting to ride the ponies at Memorial Day and Christmas. They bring the same ponies to both events and her favorite is Razzle. Luckily she has always been able to ride him. I think she thinks he is her horse. :)
Sophia riding Razzle...I'll have to find a picture where you can see him.
A few cute pics Phil took of Reagan and Sophia while Kandis and I were getting cotton candy.
So that was our Saturday very fun but I was wiped by the end! :) I hope you all had a nice Saturday as well!

In the perfect world we would have a family photo but that is a little complicated even when setting a timer. So we normally just put Sophia on our card..and lets face it she really is the cutest out of the three of us. :) Here are a few of our favorites:
These next three were suppose to be her 4 year old pictures but they turned out so cute we may use one of them. The lighting that day was great!
So I haven't actually shown you the one we picked you will just have to wait for your card in the mail. :)

We have been very busy around here lately. We went to visit Phil's family in England in the middle of October. Then when we got back it was time for Halloween!! Those of you who know me know I LOVE Halloween it really is my favorite Holiday. This year Sophia decided that she wanted to be Captain Hook. She has been obsessed with the Peter Pan story lately and I thought for sure she would want to be Wendy or Tinker Bell. I was absolutely floored when she announced she wanted to be Captain Hook. So here is Sophia aka Captain Hook:
Scary isn't she?
The biggest event for us in October was going to England. This was Sophia's very first flight. Yep I know we do it right..just go ahead and start her out with an eight hour flight. Luckily it went well and she slept pretty good on the flight and only got antzy when it was about time to land and who wouldn't be after sitting that long. We had a lot of fun and the time change didn't really mess with us that bad. It was nice seeing all of Phil's family again most of them haven't even met Sophia. She also got to see two real castles. I actually think the second one she liked more because she had more freedom to run around and there was basically no one there. Leed's was very nice but very busy. They have a great play area for the kids though and a very confusing hedge maze. Instead of posting a lot of photos Phil made this really great video that sums up our trip in about three minutes.
So that is a bit of a catch up for now. I need to get little bit up from her nap. I will post about Savannah tomorrow!

These dinosaurs are great and they interact with one another! They tell you facts about the type of dinosaur they are. They also roar and sing the dinosaur train song together. We spent a good half hour playing with these. :) I loved them so much I wanted to tell all of you about them as well..so go have fun and play!

Kandis and I went last year and loved it. This year my friend Emorie was looking for something to do for her little girl Isabella's birthday and I recommended this. We had such a good time even though it was sweltering HOT that day.
It is easier to tell you about our day through the pictures. :)
Sophia, Addison and part of Kandis jumping on the jump pillow. :)
They had several educational areas where they taught the kids how to milk a cow, composting, and facts about chickens. They also would let you feed the different animals they have. The goat enclosure is my favorite they have different ramps and platforms to walk up to.
Here is the b-day girl holding a crazy looking chicken.
Sophia was in love with this donkey and I think it loved her too.
They were learning about composting...this was their favorite part..holding the worms.
These little goats were so cute!
The highlight of the day we did this twice.
They had an area called Tiny Town and it was so much fun! I wish I had taken a picture of the whole thing but basically it is a bunch of small buildings set up as a town. They had a bank, hotel, fire station, church etc. and you know the best thing?? They were all Air Conditioned!!! :) The girls had a blast running to each one and seeing what was inside.
Here they are at the hotel.
Sophia leading a song at church. :)
My personal favorite is this corn house. It doesn't sound very nice but you have got to try it out. I want one for my backyard! It was so relaxing and the girls just love playing in it...make sure you shake your shorts out when you climb out though. :)
See how pink she was..It was Hot with a capital H! I thought this was pretty cute of her though.
The last think we did was the train ride around the Ranch...we got a little breeze and cooled off.
There were several other things to do there was well such as cane pole fishing, paddle boats, little race cars the kids could peddle. Also in the Fall they have a corn maze. Here is my post from last year as well. We had a great time and will be back in the Fall!
While we were there we took Sophia to the annual 4th of July parade. I think she had a lot of fun and was definitely on a sugar high with all the candy she caught. Also while we were there my mom opened her store The Owl's Nest so check it out if you are in the downtown St. Marys area it is really cute oh and she is also on facebook. :)
Sophia humouring me while she waits on more flying candy and beads.
The child LOVES popcorn!
While we were visiting my family we decided to take Sophia to Jekyll Island. Sophia loves the beach just about as much as she loves popcorn. She is all about jumping in the waves and playing in the sand I think she would have stayed out there until the sun went down. Ever since going she has been having "Beach Parties" at our house. :)
These are big waves for Jekyll and she thought they were great!
This makes me laugh everytime...Sophia trying to stop the waves.
We passed this sign when we were leaving and I laughed so hard I made Phil take a picture. :)
We had a lot of fun and I'm always impressed at how everyone always goes all out decorating their room. They also added a jump castle and dunk tank for the last night of VBS.
Here are a few pictures from the week:
Picture of the girls waiting to jump.
Sophia concentrating hard on her fishing pole.
Scuba Steve and Sophia. :)
