The summer is winding down and it's time to start thinking about school again. Start making your lists of all that you'll need for your kids to start the year off in style, but within your budget! SophiasStyle Children's Clothing Store has all that you'll need to fill your little girls closet with trendy, hip girls clothes and at affordable prices. Every time I visit their website I get so excited about all the adorable girls clothes and great prices too! My girls love wearing their new boutique fashion and their friends' moms are always asking where I got their adorable outfits. I love telling them about the great deals I got. I usually check every day because they're always getting new things in. I even found the cutest backpacks for each of them along with some new outfits by Lipstik. I already purchased the girls their outerwear, what a deal on Rothschild coats!
You'll love their selection and prices. Visit and start off their school year in style.

I am Sophia’s grandma. Yes, that Sophia, the young lady who was the inspiration for Sophia is the oldest of my four granddaughters and, having grown up in a family of brothers and then a son, there is nothing more delightful than granddaughters. Not that I don’t enjoy my brothers and my son. They are great, but girls, little girls – granddaughters – they are delightful.
I don’t live near my granddaughters. I live in Arizona while they live in places farther north but I see them as much as possible and I do enjoy shopping for them. It will still be hot in Arizona when the girls visit us toward the end of the summer. I like to have something for them when they arrive so I did a quick check with the Mom’s and then ordered four pairs of flip-flops in various sizes, a couple of the blue Zutano dresses for the toddlers, a very sporty outfit from Coco Bon Bon for the four-year old and one of Sophia’s Style Trendy Fashion Dresses for the six year old. All are part of the Summer Clearance Sale. When it’s time to dress the girls and head off to the children’s museum I will be ready and they will be – delightful!

First Birthday Party - Baby's Birthday Party Invitation Idea

We have started a family tradition to throw a big party for our children's first birthday. When my youngest daughter turned 1, I had a sneaky suspicion that the abundance of attention given to the 'first birthday girl' could create some sibling envy for my oldest daughter, who was 5 years old.

In order to avoid the anticipated sibling rivalry to rear its ugly head, I elected to thrust the 'big sister' into the role of throwing the best birthday party for her little sister. Her main responsibility was to design the birthday invitations. Together, we decided that the theme of the invitations would be 'Why I Love my Baby Sister.' Big sister had a blast brainstorming all of the reasons why she truly loved her little sister (some were touching, some funny and a few that were amusing). She then colored a picture to be used for the invitation.

I used our printer to make copies of her picture and the poem, so the invitations cost only pennies each to make. Here is the list:

I love my sister because:
she loves me
I get to feel her in my heart
I get to see her all the time
sometimes I get to have stuff without her
I have a real good time with her
she’s a real good little sister
she always wants me to play with her & I want to too
she laughs real funny and real loud and it’s so cute
she takes naps alot
we love each other

Sophias Style girl's clothing store offers a huges selection of birthday dresses, birthday shirts, party hats and more, all perfect for those cherished moments to be remembered forever!
