Can she already be 5?!?!?

It's hard to believe that our Sophie is already 5 years old!!!! We had fun celebrating her Birthday yesterday!! I was prepared to make her a big breakfast, but those of you that know her wouldn't be surprised when she just wanted cereal.. It wasn't just any kind of cereal, it was Fruity Pebbles...a cereal I never buy. She couldn't have been happier. Easy enough.

Sophie didn't have preschool and I asked her what she wanted to do on her birthday. She said she just wanted to stay home. Everyday we are either helping at Grandma and Grandpa Rasmusssen's house, going to preschool or running errands. I thought it was sweet that she just wanted to stay home for a change. What a sweetheart. The only problem about staying home was that she had all day to just sit and stare at her presents that she was waiting to open till everyone got home from work and school... The anticipation nearly killed her. ;)

I asked Sophie if she wanted to go to McDonald's for lunch and get a Happy Meal and play on the playground...she said no, that she just wanted to stay home and have Macaroni and Cheese. Easy Enough.

Sophie was really excited about her birthday cake this year....She wanted a CASTLE CAKE!! It was really easy and she LOVED it.

Sophie wanted to put the M&M's and the Candles on....She did a really good job. Sophie with the finished product before Kolby got to it and pushed in some M&M's and messed up the writing....I know he just really wanted to help too... grrrrr....

Sophie is so cute when it finally came to opening her presents. She got a Pediatrician Barbie, More Princesses and Princes and Fairies for her castle, finger paints, Scattapiller Scramble.. She was seriously in heaven!!!

Keeping up with the tradition, Grandma and Grandpa sent their newest 5 year old granddaughter a purse full of money. This tradition started when Whitney turned 5 and Grandma Ras sent her a "Purse full of money" She was so excited!!! Now when my parents have a granddaughter turn 5 this is what they get. Sophie was so excited. In the purse Sophie found a wallet with a bunch of pockets and money was in every nook and cranny. It was cute to watch all of the kids faces as Sophie kept finding more and more money!! Thanks Mom and Dad!! It was soooo cute!!!

After she opened some presents we went Bowling for Sophie's Birthday. Holly and Candace came and we had a blast bowling, eating pizza (the kids) and Costa Vida (the adults) It was fun.

I say the kids ate Pizza, but Adelyn actually ate about as much of my salad as I did. :) What a cute girl and a good eater!! Thank goodness we have at least one really good eater in the family!!! She loves anything grown up and healthy. She makes me laugh...

After bowling we had the Carters, the Olsens, the Stitts and the Cooks over for cake and Ice Cream. It was last minute,but Sophie was really excited that so many friends were able to come and share in her special day. I was glad too since everyone helped us eat a ton of the cake and ice cream. I really don't need tons of that left over in our house!!!!

Happy Birthday Sophie!!! We love you so much and are grateful that you are in our family!!

so fun. what a beautiful girl. I'm laughing so hard about the conservative food choices she made: cereal over waffles, mac and cheese over a happy meal, salad over pizza (well, i'm with her on that one!).

Love you guys! See you tomorrow!!!!

Happy Birthday beautiful girl!!! I seriously have been thinking about her all week (we've been waiting to call when Ammon's home) and can't believe she is five!! Seriously I am in disbelief that she is already that old and that Hailey will soon follow. She is a doll and looks like she was quite content with a very fun birthday. Her cake was darling too. I love you Sophie girl and can't wait to see you in a couple of months!!!!
