The past week has been sweet and bittersweet! On November 26th, our precious little granddaughter Sofie turned one. That same day, our little Lucy turned 8 months! They're lucky little cousins to share the same day of the month for their birthdays!
Sofie had a big party on December 1st, in San Antonio. It was so sad that we weren't able to make it for the big day, I'm hoping that in years to come, my vacation schedule and finances will allow us to travel more so that we don't miss any of these important milestones!
For her birthday, I created this cute little illustration:
As you can see, Sofie looks quite a bit like the little drawing I did- she has plenty of hair, and always wears pretty flowers in her hair.
Here's a picture of her with me, right before Bruce took her to the airport. We had such a wonderful time with her- she had 4 trips to NYC, including 2 trips to the Temple. She sang a solo in our Ward one Sunday, she went to work with me one day, and designed a toy! She saw 3 movies (2 with Bruce alone, I was working, how sad!), went mission shopping, helped fix Thanksgiving dinner, decorated for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and just generally left happiness everywhere she went.
