Saydi's 1st Day of Pre-School

Saydi was so excited to start Preschool, she actually missed 2 days of class because I decided to put her in after it had already started. She has a great teacher and enjoys it very much.
I'm not sure who had a harder time with Saydi going to school, Me or Sophie????

Elder Party for Sophie's 1st Birthday

I can finally do piggies in Sophie's hair.

We had Josh and Veronica, Heidi and their kids and my parent's up for dinner and cake.

I got this cute cake/cupcake daisy at Sam's club and we also had Pumpkin Pie.

Sophie enjoyed her cupcake

Sophie loves her Gma and Gpa Elder

Sophie had two fun parties, it is always nice to be able to spend time with our families. We had to have two parties because a Wed. wasn't doable with having my family come up during the week, and it was kinda nice to be able to visit with everyone at different times. Sometimes it gets hectic when both families are there and it's hard to divide time between the two. But it all worked out GREAT!

Sophie's 1st Birthday!!

Sophie turned 1 on Oct. 8, 2008.
Sophie got to lick the beaters after I made her cake

Messy Baby

Sophie was so excited to get a new baby stroller/walker!

We put Sophie down to take a pic and she stuck her foot right in the cake

Saydi told me that Sophie wanted a heart shaped chocolate cake w/chocolate frosting and sprinkles on top. So this is what she got.

She had to have a bath before we could open presents!

We had Sophie's Mickelson family party at Grandma Linda's house because there is no way we could fit all of Lloyd's siblings and their kids in our little house.

Kayle's Wedding in Boise

We went to Boise for my cousin Kayle's wedding. It was a long drive, but well worth it. We had so much fun! We got to stay in a super nice hotel, and the girls were so good especially for not having a bedtime or being in a familiar place. I was so impressed with Sophie, that is the best she has ever been away from home. It was nice to be able to see family that we haven't for a while and it was also great to be able to have people to send the girls with and not have a moment's worry. I love my Buchanan family they're so much fun!! I wish we could get together more often!
The girls on the way home. They both had their elbows the same way it was so cute!
