Since I've been absent from posting Jadyn has had a birthday! This kid is 8 already!

Jadyn had her first professional hair cut today. I've trimmed it several times but I'm not good at getting it even. We had a little over 1" removed.

Jadyn earned all the strips on her Gold belt she needed to test for her Orange belt. Proud of this girl!

Our Christmas was once again spent in Portland with family. This girls favorite holiday didn't disappoint.
Her Elf was naughty this year, Jadyn really enjoyed waking up each morning to see what she had been up to during the night!
This was a night when Elf was behaving.
A photo op at Lowes!

She loves curly hair, can hardly wait to get those foam rollers out in the morning.
She'll have to enjoy her hair at home today as we are iced in, no school!

Jadyn has known for months that she wanted to be Maleficent this year, so I planned ahead and bought the head piece and wings when the movie came out. I made the dress and she became a beautiful Disney character.
We changed it up this year and painted her pumpkin. Turned out pretty neat!

2 months into taekwondo classes, Jadyn earned her second belt.
She was so excited and did a great job in front of a panal of 6 black belt judges.

Sad to see summer end. We purchased 2 jetskis, Jadyn enjoyed them until Daddy accidentally dumped them both off. I need to toughen this girl up!

We left for a 8 day trip to meet up with some of the families we went to China with, and for a family visit in Kansas. Long delayed flights and even longer car rides made for a tired girl!
August 3, 2014 marked our 5 year anniversary of adopting our sweet girl. It was so good see the families we went to China with and how much their little ones have grown.
After 4 days in Branson, Mo we drove to Kansas to spend time with family.

Yes, this is the 5th child I have had in braces. Thank goodness they are separated by years and years!
Except for Jeron, who's still got his on, for a few more weeks.
Jadyn needs her palate expanded, so her teeth won't hit. She has to wear an ugly contraption at night while she sleeps. This should correct her bite in about 12 weeks. She's thrilled about the 4 pink braces on the front teeth!

Jadyn decided she would like to take Tae-Kwon-Do classes like her brother Jeron.
She had to memorize the "Student Creed" by her 7th class, then recite it to the class and instructor. Once that is done you get your first belt. She nailed it!
Proud of this kid!
|She's a white belt!|
