Sophie’s birthday

Sophie turned 10 on March 9.  As cliche as it is to say, kids really do grow up fast!  The Saturday before her birthday she had a party with her friends.  We did an American Girl mystery party with a Halloween theme:


Here is Sophie dressed as Molly, dressed as a gypsy (Her friend, Rachael is next to her in the hula costume.):2-rot

Isn’t she cute?  In order to make the Molly glasses I bought glasses at Saver’s and popped the lenses out.

Where does one find Halloween decorations in March?  Why, D.I., of course!  I found enough of these shiney plastic pumpkins to give out as party favors.  I filled them with Halloween stickers, ghost-shaped candles, and candy.  Everything but the candy came from D.I.  Here are two of the favors (aren’t they pretty?):


Lilly made her a delicious yellow cake with cream cheese frosting (completely from scratch!):


Here are all the party attendees in costume (I was the stern housekeeper):


On the night of her birthday we had a family party with chicken rolls and homemade German chocolate cake.  Here is Alice eating her chicken roll with Grandpa:


And here is the birthday girl with her addictingly good cake (notice how yellow the frosting is thanks to our free-range eggs!):


Sophie got a bubble maker from one of her friends and it was a big hit among the little cousins:





  1. WOW, I cant believe how old Sophie is! Looks like a very fun birthday party! Its fun to see pictures of everyone growing up. Thanks for updating!
