L's 4th Birthday

L turned 4 yesterday. We had a family birthday party this past Saturday. We were happy to have Grammy and Granddaddy here with us. And L got to invite a friend - and she chose her preschool teacher and her kids. She was excited they were coming to play.

My mom got me an awesome cupcake holder for my birthday and I had talked to L and we had decided that she would have cupcakes for her birthday. I had visions of a beautiful table with my cupcake tower in the center.....but, it wasn't to be. When we went to order the cupcakes at Wal*mart, she fell in love with a cake. A princess cake. Seriously, I don't know how many more princess cakes I can take. But, she loved it so much.....if we keep on, we will have been through every princess cake that they offer.

This particular cake had Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Belle.
Here are a few shots of the kids enjoying their cake and ice cream.

And here is a shot of Grammy and B watching all the festivities.

L got a sleeping beauty guitar from Santa. So when Grammy asked what she wanted for her birthday, she didn't hesitate in saying she wanted a microphone and a microphone stand. Apparently she has aspirations to be a rock star. She got just want she was hoping for.She also got a new barbie from her friends. We got her Disney Sing It for our Wii and that has been so much fun watching she and her sisters sing along with it. She also received a different princess game for the Wii , which everyone is enjoying. Who can resist making your own princess look just like you to go on the adventure.....Not anyone I know. =)

Yesterday, Pa Pa and Na Na sent her some balloons. She has been playing with them ever since. She also enjoyed getting to take cupcakes to Preschool for her birthday. She thought that was grand.

In honor of L's 4th birthday -- here are 4 things you should know about her.

*L loves to color, draw and write. She will get very quiet and I can find her in her room coloring usually. She also likes to write out letters that she can make and ask me what it spells.

*L has very good fine motor skills thus, why she can color in the lines better than her sisters.

* L loves to sing. She often sings through her day as she goes along.

*L loves her big sisters fiercely. And by fiercely, I mean she loves them so much that she hugs them a lot and hits them a lot.

There are so many wonderful things about her. Her personality is growing and coming out so much these days. It is so much fun to watch her grow.

Happy Birthday, L. I love you!!!

It's so wonderful to see a happy child! Our granddaughter is 4 and in preschool, too. Her birthday is in April and she started planning her birthday party right after Christmas! They grow up so quickly. Cherish each moment that you can.

Happy Birthday to L!

There's a poet living in your midst. I imagine that she'll find her expression through words. Tend to it, princess style of course!

I just keep saying to myself, "Deidre, you will be sad when there are no Disney Princesses lying around the house anymore". .. That makes me LOVE them. (But, I understand what you mean).

Looks like a great birthday.

Happy Birthday to your 4-year. Any idea where the microphone and stand came from? We've been looking for one for Micah for about 2 years. (But not Hannah Montana)
