Time for a spatial relations eval??

There is nothing Sof loves more then putting garbage in the garbage can. I had this box sitting by the door to throw in the trash. She figured it should go in the garbage can...

5 Shots in Style

I had to do a double post today because this is too important to lump together. Sofie had a true Culley bow on today! I've never met a bow that is too big. I love this look on her! Unfortunately, all that cutness was waiting to get 5 shots at the pediatrician. She cried but got over it fast. Such a pretty little trooper!

Sofie Goes to Grandma Jackie's House

On Monday Sofie and I drove a couple hours to where my family lives. It's the first long car ride for Sof, and she did great. Watched her video, had a snack, and slept. We went to my Grandmother's house because she will be moving out in a couple weeks to and independant living facility. I was helping her go through some of her things and Sofie was just enjoying running all over! While I was distracted she kept going into her diaper bag and getting snacks out. Then she would hide in the hallway with them. She thought she was pretty tricky!

I'm so glad I have pictures of Sofie at Grandma's house! She loves her Grandma Jackie:)

Easter Weekend

Finally, I'm getting a chance to post from our weekend! Anne and Rick's daughter Joni came in from Colorado. Such a treat! She has been following our adoption story and supporting us from afar, so it was special for her to finally meet Sof in person. They were instant buds!


We hung out and celebrated Kaitlyn's birthday on Friday. She turned 5 on Thursday!! I can't believe she's going to Kindergarten next year!

I even let Sofie have ice cream, and of course there were presents!

Easter morning was a little crazy. Adrienne had just gotten in from LA the night before so I didn't make her get up early. The little two I made get up and dressed for church before they hunted eggs and looked in their baskets. Consequently, Adrienne seriously messed up the color scheme for pictures! Nevertheless, Sofie thought collecting eggs was great fun! We went to church and had family for dinner.

Sofie was lovin' this holiday when she got to eat cookies for breakfast IN the living room!!

Emily and I were a little late with coloring eggs, so we did them that afternoon! I really hate that idea anyway. Who thought of wasting a bunch of eggs letting kids put them in dye in the house???

Happy Easter!

I'm Home Everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok so instead of my mom, I am going to explain my trip to LA! By the way this is Adrienne! It is hard to describe my trip in words but I will do my best! IT WAS AMAZING!!!!! I danced with people from all around the world. For example, people from all 50 states, Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand, Philippines, Portugual, Russia, and Scotland. Dance Excellence is an international celebration of dance. It is the best experience I have ever had in my life. I took classes, went to shows, and performed at Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm.
I met soooooooo many people and they were all so nice! If you went up and randomly hugged someone they would think that was normal! They were amazing! Its like they were family! Here are some pictures of me and my closest friends!

Me and my some of my friends from Michigan, Missouri, and Alaska!
