Celebrating Sophie

We have been celebrating Sophie for the past 2 days.

She has managed to have two parties....and two cakes! 

Yesterday morning we headed to the Pilgrimage at Cormac for St. Anne.  This is also known as the 'outdoor church' in our house.  I love going to this Mass every year.  Sophie loved it because so many people were wishing her a 'Happy Birthday'.

Sophie and Lydia also loved it because they got to shop before Mass.  They each bought a necklace with a cross this year.

The showers had been 'going around'....and missing us....until the very end of Mass.  I took this photo about 3 minutes before the downpour can see the dark clouds towards the right.  We had umbrellas but we still got soaked....and I mean SOAKED.

It was actually sort of funny how everyone made a run for it as the final blessings were being said.  We were answering the prayers as we all ran....

We came home and dried off and then had a small party for Sophie.  We invited the grandparents over for supper.

Sophie wanted a dolphin on her cake, so we made this....

And then we made another one for the second party today....we had friends and cousins over for a swim in Grandma and Grandpa's pool.

The weather was so cold it really wasn't a pool day....I was ready for a hot chocolate.  But they swam and played in some slime and had some fun.

I can't believe she is 7 already.  I let her get her ears pierced.

    1. No problems with the piercing. She can't wait to be able to change the earrings...and go shopping for earrings.
