The Birthday Princess

Our little Sarah turned three years old! When we named her Sarah, I didn't know it meant "princess", but it absolutely fits her. She is so fun and knows she is the belle of the ball. Aunt Carla gave her a Birthday Princess crown, and made our Sarah very happy on her birthday.

Rachel and Katie were so excited to give Sarah her presents, they could barely let her open them. We kept having to tell them to let Sarah do it. Rachel and Katie picked out a princess umbrella and a pink tithing/savings/fun box. Grandma and Grandpa Z sent a fluffy tutu that Sarah was all about wearing, Nana Foley sent a darling dress and pajamas, and Aunt Carla sent the hat and a cup. We tried to take a picture to see it all, but it didn't work too well.

Sarah holding Aunt Carla's cup. She loved it!

My cake was embarrassing. The blob at the bottom was supposed to represent Sarah. But, she loved it, and that's what counts.

Sarah and Nathan. They are the cutest. Happy Birthday Sarah!

These last couple of weeks have been full of fun and family. My sisters Carla and Melanie came up last weekend and I'm kicking myself that this is the only picture I have of their visit. Mel brought Brooke and Maylee, and my three girls had a great time with their cousins. Sarah loves Carla, and the feeling is mutual...so Sarah got to do Carla's hair and this is the finished product...so cute.To start off Thanksgiving, David's dad flew out from Michigan to spend the holiday with us. It was so fun to have him here and see the girls play with their Grandpa Foley.My mom and dad drove down on Friday night with Carla and Steph to spend the rest of the weekend together. David was called as the second counselor in the bishopric, and so our families got together for the occasion.Dad holding Nathan. They bonded quite a bit.
Stephanie is our family stylist. She cut all the girls hair, including mine. Her skills are amazing.

Sarah would hold still while I took pictures, so she got a lot of them taken.Katie got a little bob. I love how her hair looks short, she is so cute.

This is a before and after shot of Rachel's new haircut. She told me a few weeks ago she wanted a cut. I like the change, but she looks so grown up, I can't believe she is almost seven year old!

I also got my haircut, but you can't really tell. Steph gave it a lot of layers, but I'm happy with it.

We went to see the petroglyphs in Parowan.
Last night for FHE, we went to the Heritage Center. They had Santa Clause and Princesses. Those two things combined made for a hit with our girls. Cinderella was an especially big hit, because she lives across the street. The girls love our neighbor Maddie.
Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, and one lucky Prince. Sarah just kept crying for "Princesses" as we were trying to leave. You had to pay five bucks to get your picture taken with Santa...so no Santa picture for us.
David and Nathan thought the penguins were much more manly to get a picture taken with.

Communities are so great to put together things like this. Our family had a great time!
