Sadie is 8!

My oldest child is 8!!  I can't believe it.  Really.  How did this happen.  I think I say that every year...but they just keep growing.  It's crazy.  Sadie is such a delight in our family.  She is eager to help with almost anything.  She loves helping out with Riley especially.  She loves to play with Zac and Emery and she is a great example to them and to me.  She is going to be baptized in a couple weeks and she is so excited and a little nervous.  She was really excited when the leaders of the activity day girls decided to invite her and Rob to the Daddy daughter dance that was just a few days before her 8th birthday.  They had a great time and the leaders did a great job planning the whole thing.   They had dinner, took cute pictures and danced the night away.

THis was the best picture I got before they left.  Don't they look great?!

 I love these pictures that they took at the activity!  

 It's fun having a photographer in the ward who likes to share her talents like this!

My friend Robyn made Sadie a cool heart cake for her birthday.  It had candy inside that spilled out when she cut into it.  

This was the first picture of the day.  My Sadie is 8!

We decided that since it was her 8th birthday she could have a party at the trampoline place near our house.  I didn't get very many good pictures there since everyone was bouncing the whole time...but here is what I got:
Sadie is the blur in the back who is about to jump on the vertical trampolines.

Here she is with her friend Hallie.  We lasted an hour and then went home for cake and ice cream.  It was a fun day.

Here is Rob setting up some streamers for Sadie to run through in the morning.  And I got 8 balloons for her because she is 8!!

THis picture is just to document our fun Valentine decorations. 

Sadie got to start gymnastics on her birthday (hence the leotard).  For her birthday breakfast, I made egg-in-hearts.  :)

Aren't they cute?!?!

Sadie and her friends.  Cute girls!

I forgot to take a picture of her cake alone, but you can kinda see it in these pictures.  It is a heart with sprinkles on the edges.  

And yes, she did blow out all of the candles in one breath!  

We sure  love our Sadie girl.  It is so fun to see her growing into such a fun, loving, beautiful inside and out young lady!
