The Second White Dress

At some point I must have blinked and about six years up and disappeared.  It seems like yesterday that she was getting blessed.  My sweet little baby is now a sweet young girl!

Because turning eight is a milestone in every girls life, I want to pay a special tribute to my little princess.  Alexis is a sweet and loving girl.  She is incredibly sensitive to those around her.  She loves gymnastics, dance, and friends.  She is very smart and thrives in school.  (I don’t know for sure, but I think she is the teacher’s pet this year.)  She loves to draw and do crafts.  She won an art contest in school a few weeks ago for drawing the best illustration in her class of Junie B. Jones.  She is an excellent example to her friends.  She worries all the time about doing what is right.  She always makes good choices.  She is already a missionary, and invites her less active friends to come to church. Her brother and sister adore her.  She loves having her hair done, her nails painted, and wearing new clothes.  She has always loved beautiful and fancy things.  She helped me plan and decorate for her baptism.  The dress Alexis chose for her baptism is a direct example of who she is. (Elegant, charming, beautiful and special!)  We are so lucky to have a daughter as wonderful as her!

Our October

We started the month off with a Halloween party for Lexi and Oakley.  We had 25 girls come.  It was a blast!  We had two treasure hunts, one for Lexi and her friends, and one for Oakley and her friends.  Lexi’s was more difficult, it included invisible ink, backward messages, digging, and breaking rocks.  Oakley and her friends searched for skull goblets by using picture clues.  We ate rats, spiders, mummy toes, monster eyes, and witches brew.  We ended the night with a scary movie!
