Our Girl Sophie

This is a very short post. I wanted mention a couple of things that have happened in her life in the month of May.

Sophie works hard in school. She started middle school this year and is doing very well. She was awarded the Outstanding Academic Achievement Award at Aiken Middle School. Go Sophie Girl!!

In my book, our Sophie is outstanding in every good way and, as her grandparents, we could not be more proud of her!

Another very big event happened this month. Sophie celebrated her twelfth birthday! She is growing up much too fast. We celebrated at one of her favorite restaurants in town, Mi Rancho. Sophie is an avid reader and The Hunger Games series of books are some of her best loved, so far. She adores The Hunger Games: Mocking jay, both one and two.

She chose the theme of The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay for her birthday cake this year. Our neighbor and dear friend, Julie makes some of the most tasty and beautifully decorated cakes.

Isn't the cake pretty with the "flames" of butter cream icing around the base?

Our grandgirls love birthday celebrations and they love having fun!

The birthday girl wanted her candles placed so as to make a "ring of fire" in the circle around Mocking Jay. I think these candles with colored flames that my daughter found are beautiful.

Just look at all those colorful flames encircling Mocking Jay in a ring of fire!

It was time to blow out those candles.

The party was great fun and casual. You might say it was a "Black Tie Affair!" Oh my, I couldn't resist, Larry! Can we still be friends after I post this picture?

The things we treasure most in life are the fun times we share together with family and friends. Thanks to all who joined us to celebrate twelve years of our dear Sophie's life!

I hope you enjoyed my little blog post. Thanks for the time you have spent here with me sharing bits of our lives and other things! Please drop by again very soon.
