My cute little princess turned 4 last week. She really has been an absolute joy for all of us. None of us can imagine life with out her. She has so many funny lines that I always have something funny to tell Dave when he gets home at night. For example...I went shopping for her birthday the day before. I got her a little bike with training wheels because my parents neighbor's have one and she always loves to ride and tell me "it's just my size!" Anyway, I brought it home and hid in my closet and shut all teh doors, thinking I would move it somewhere better hidden later. Well, that afternoon, I caught her coming out of my bedroom. I kept asking her where she had been to the constant answer of "nowhewe." She did finally admit that she had been in my room, but just in my "bafwoom." When I asked what she ahd been doing in there she finally looked at me and as she sternly used her and as she spoke, she said, "Mom, I dust didn't see da bike." I had to turn around walk down the all right away because I just coudn't keep a staight face for that!
When she woke up in the morning, both her big sisters made her special crowns for her big day.
We had a special party with some friends in the morning. She was so excited for this big moment. Here are all the kids enjoying a hot dog lunch.
My Brother's little boy and my sister's little girl really look so much alike! I just had to get a picture of these 2. They really could pass for siblings instead of cousins.
My darling little nephew Brys just had to jump in the picture too. This kid all smiles, all the time. He has such big dimples they look like they go straight through from one cheek to the other!
Posing with the cupcakes.
My cute little nephew, Brody, wanted to give hre a bag full of snacks. Hew as very specific about this particular box of Jello Pudding because she would love it so much. She really was excited about it and had so much fun making it.
Of course, our little angel was so cute running around the whole time. This was the first time she tried drinking out of a cup and she quite liked it. She just through away her sippy after!
I have really had fun lately making cupcakes. I made a nice little variety since we had this party in the morning, than a big family party that night. I decided they deserved plenty of photographic homage..

Ok...back to the celebrations:We had a big family party that night. It was lots of fun. KL shares a birthday with my cousin Shannon. Shannon was kind enough to let us do a joint party. I loved it because we got to have my aunt who was in town, my Grandpa 1 last time before going up to Utah for the summer, some of my cousins, including 1 who is justa bout to move to Virgina (which I'm still in mourning about, but I know it will be a great experience for her and her family!). Anyway, we had a simple dinner, than moved on to presents.
Just another quick funny story about my funny little girl. I ran to go and pick up the sandwiches before dinner. As I was unloading the car, KL asked what it was for. I told her it was for her birthday party. She said, "But I awweady had my biwfday." I said, "This is for another party, remember?" Her eyes got really big and she looked at me and said, "Am I tuwning 6 today, too?!?!"
