Sienna turns 6!

This week my little Sienna went and turned 6.
How dare she?
I keep begging them to stay little.
And they keep disobeying me.
It hurts.

We decided to throw her an all things girly spa party!
It was such fun!
I found the template for these darling invites here.
 And we chose the color scheme pink and zebra.
And by we, I mean she.
She loves pink.  And zebra.
And is begging for a zebra room re-do.
 Since it was a 'spa party', all the little ladies went home
with zebra, black or white bath rags with lotions inside.
Cheap.  And adorable.
 My absolutely fantastic friend Courtney saw that
Adyson had an amazing cake for her birthday,
and didn't want Sienna's cake to suck-(read, have me make it).
So she called the day before...
and whipped up this beauty!
A Barbie soaking in her bubble bath.
With fondant lipstick and nail polish.
and the polish looked so real that Adyson 
actually tried to open it!
I have amazing friends!

 I had a lot of help for this party, 
so it was easy and lovely.
Thank you to my mom, sister and 
adorable young women for taking stations!

They did nails.
 Make-up and Hair.
And posed for glamor shots outside.
 It was girly and lovely in every way.

 And then it was present time!
 And cake time.
It was painful to cut into that cake.
Really, it was.

 She has adorable friends!
For the past 2 weeks all Sienna has been asking for is to 
go to Texas Roadhouse for dinner so she could ride the saddle.
It was so much fun to have our families there,
and Sienna had a great Birthday!
Now if we could only freeze time!

(Notice our matching shirts?  I will blog
about the amazing, amazing fundraiser when I 
get some photos.). Stay tuned, cause it was a beautiful day!

{Adyson's Baptism-Easter}

Saturday was such a beautiful,
special, magical day!
Adyson chose to be baptized and
we were able to celebrate the event over
Easter weekend.
It was full of family and close friends
and just a wonderful weekend!

It was pretty special having Travis do the baptism
and confirmation, and my heart still feels very full
thinking of what a great day it was.
It's no secret we've had a very hard few months
and this really changed our focus and we were able
to spend the day just feeling happy!

Adyson and Travis before the baptism.

Me and Adyson just before.The program was beautiful.
My sister Heather spoke on Baptism and reminded
Adyson of the covenants she was making and spoke
directly to Adyson. It was perfect.

My brother Cody spoke on the Holy Ghost and reminded
Adyson that she may at times feel alone, but she is not.
And taught about how the Holy Ghost is often felt, not heard.

Both talks make me feel very blessed for the siblings I have.
I really, really adore and love them.

Amy lead the music, Grandma Lorraine played the piano,
Kutter and Sienna prayed, Trayson and Breje played special numbers,
and so many family members and friends were there to support
her, and some had quite the drive to make.
Thank you to everyone who made it such a remarkable day.

Adyson picked her dress herself
and felt-very-very-very pretty in it!

This photo by Eileen Workman.After the baptism we had a big lunch to celebrate.
Sienna enjoyed Grandma Lorraines darling cake pops!This is the best picture of the 4 of us I could muster.
Later that day we went to my moms
to have an Easter Egg Hunt with all their Johnson cousins.
Sienna was thrilled!
Aren't they all adorable?

And today we were able to attend church for the first
time in too long. It was so lovely to attend our ward!
And to hear beautiful messages on Easter, and remember the
reason we celebrate this day.
I sure love these two little ladies!
And we are both so proud of Adyson.
It was a great weekend!
