Abby saying Thank You!

Can she really be 4?

It doesn't seem that long ago that we celebrated Abby's 3rd birthday. I can't believe my baby is 4 years old. We had a nice little family party at home. Since her birthday was on Sunday and I didn't get invitations out in time for a "friends" party. That's o.k., there's always next year. She was VERY happy with the way her birthday went anyway. Here are some pictures of the celebration. But first I wanted to start a little tradition that I've seen other people do and I thought it was such a great idea. I want to tell 4 things I love about Abby and how she's grown in the past year. 4 because, well, she's 4...

1. She keeps our lives fun and interesting(and gives me something to blog about).
For example; her hair cuts, making pancakes, etc.
2. She loves her brothers and sister.
3. She's learned that it's o.k. to go to primary, preschool, and friends houses, and stay by herself and she doesn't need her Mom ALL the time and she can still have fun.
4. She's so smart. She loves to write her letters, esp. the letter A.

I could go on, but she's only 4...here are some pictures from her birthday...This cute cookie bouquet was from the Singers from San Antonio. She LOVED it! As you can see in the center picture. She just stared at it for about the first 5 minutes after getting it delivered.We didn't want to eat it because it was so cute, but we ate it for our family night treat. They were delicious!

These are her presents from her mom and dad and brothers and sister. She was so excited! What kid isn't excited on their birthday?
All she wanted was a rainbow cake.
I love this age, they're so easy to please.

More presents....the clothes and princess game was from Aunt Lisa, thanks Aunt Lisa. The muffin mix, apron, and cooking stuff, ingenious by the way, was from Grandma and Papa, Thanks Grandma and Papa. She loved it, and wanted to make blueberry muffins right then.
She made them the very next morning for breakfast. Everybody loved them!

My Fall Give Away

I'm having a fall give away in honor of the fall/halloween season. Those of us in town probably are like me and wish that this HOT weather would just go away. I'm hoping that with this give away mother nature gets the hint and sends us some much cooler weather. Anyway, I'm giving away some of my hair clippies that I make, so if you want to win some for your little girl, niece, or whoever you know that likes that sort of thing, then go to brittas boutique to find out how easy it is to enter this great give away.

On Sunday the girls and I made pink cupcakes after the book, "Pinkalicious". If you've never read this book, it's a pretty cute book and the girls have wanted me to read it just about every night since we got it at the schools book fair back in June. The girls even help me read it by saying the words before I do. For example at the beginning it says,"It was a rainy day, too rainy to go outside. Mom said, " Let's make cupcakes, what color do you want?" Then the girls chime in, "Pink, I said, pink,pink,pink." And that's how it goes all through the book and I love it. If you have little girls, who love the color pink, then I strongly suggest this book. It's way cute. Here are the cupcakes we made....and they were PINKALIOUS! (Even the boys loved them....of course who doesn't like cupcakes?)
