Bailee turns 8

I can't believe my oldest just turned 8 years old! The past 8 years have gone by SO fast.
Bailee had a fun birthday party with lots of friends the day before her Birthday. She designed this invitation all by herself! She picked the colors, the stickers, and the fonts:

Her birthday was a success! We played lots of fun games, like the balloon pop, pin the tail on the donkey, duck-duck-goose, and we had a pinata.

I made another attempt at making her birthday cake this year. I didn't spray the pan enough so the cake broke apart when I tried to get it out. I used extra frosting to try to "glue" it back together, but I couldn't make it look good, and it was very crooked. It looks like it came out of a Dr. Seuss book or something. Oh well. It was gone in a few minutes anyway!

Then she opened her presents and we had cake & ice cream. It was a fun day!

Sunday, February 13 was her actual birthday. Here she is modeling her new apron that one of her friends gave her. Isn't it so cute! It's even reversible. :)

So that morning she opened her presents from us. She got mostly shoes and dresses, which she really needed. She's growing out of everything!

And that afternoon we dressed her up in her new white dress, sweater, and shoes. I took her to the Oquirrh Temple to take some pictures.

And here's a copy of her baptism invitation.

Vegas Anniversary

Kevin and I decided to go to Vegas for our 11 year wedding anniversary. We just did a quick weekend trip January 7-9. We stayed at the Westgate Flamingo Bay, brought some friends along, and had a great time!

We went to see the show "KA" at the MGM. It is such an amazing show! I had gone to the same show with some girlfriends a year earlier, and loved it just as much the second time. It's well worth the money!

Here is our complimentary "anniversary" dessert that was served to us at the Bellagio.

And this is on January 8th, our actual anniversary, in front of the Bellagio fountains.

Lake Mead overlook.

Before we headed home on Sunday, we checked out Hoover Dam and the new HUGE bridge.

You guys are weird.
It was a fun weekend! Happy Anniversary, Kev, I love you!
