For Gabriel's birthday party with her friends we went to a hotel. She invited two friends and Amy and Hadlie. After we checked in Gabriel open her presents and then we went to Tony's pizza for dinner. When we got back to the hotel the girls went swimming. When they were done swimming they wanted some treats, so we went to Big Lots. After we got back we decided to play the skittle game, which was lots of fun. Then they painted their toe nails and finger nails for halloween with some cute halloween decals. When they were done Amy and Hadlie and one of Gabriel's friend had to go home. Then Gabriel and her friend watch a movie and then went to bed.

Yesterday we blessed Sabrina. Here are some pictures of her in her blessing dress that I made for her. She was really good during the blessing. Grandpa Don blessed her because Travis was over come by anxioty and couldn't do it. After church we went to my mom and dad's house to have a little luncheon. Then my brother and sisters stayed and we visited. We all talked about how fun it was to go through Grandma Norma and Grandpa Pete's house and to find the treasures that reminded us of them and childhood memories. In the evening we celebrated Travis's birthday. It was fun to be together as a family.
Today Gabriel was adopted by Travis. We have been waiting for this day for 12 years. She can't wait to change her name at school. And she will finally have a father on her birth certificate. She has always wanted to be an Eisenbarth.
Finally Father and Daughter.
A picture with the judge. This is everyone who came to court with us for the adoption. When it was silent you could hear everyone sniffling. To have Robert out of our lives is something we have waited a long time for. It is a happy day for us.
We're already a family forever, but now we are a family here on earth.
Gabriel chose to go to Olive Garden for lunch.
