My oldest, Mia, turned 8 at the beginning of the month.  Mia is at a really great age where she loves to read, go to school and church, is helpful at home and loves playing with her friends.
Mia requested a purple cake .....again......and she loved it.
Mia was especially excited about her Rapunzel doll
Later in the week Mia had a party with some of her girly friends
We ate, played, and did this fun craft
All the party girls with their frames
Then, the next day Mia got baptized.  It was a lovely day and I am so grateful so many family and friends were able to come and support her.  Now I wish I would have gotten a picture with everyone that came  
Ben did a great job with Mia's baptism and confirmation
We were all so happy for Mia
Mia's baptism dress was made by one of my friends.  All I had to do was make her dinner.....what a great trade!  It turned out so pretty!
Mia with her Grandpas.....who were the witnesses
Mia with her Grandmas.....Grandma M. played the piano and Grandma E. lead the music
Cousin Emma gave the talk on the Holy Ghost and Aunt Ruth gave the talk on Baptism
Sweetest bunch of siblings ever! Here you can see her after baptism "fancy" dress
The middle of the month was pretty boring in comparison but by the end, things were lookin' up again.  Halloween can do that, ya know?  Dallin as a night warrior
Mia as a purple witch
Cami as a butterfly
All 3 really enjoyed trick-or-treating.....good news, they didn't get any tricks.....bad news, they got way too much candy
Then..........does anyone notice anything different about Mia?
Here's a clue
