Our Girl is 4

We are having a hard time believing that our Anna is 4 years old today. Thank goodness we've been celebrating for the past 3 days, so at least we're finally starting to get used to the idea.

Anna had her princess birthday party on Thursday for 5 of her little friends...complete with goodie bags filled to the brim with pink princess gear--skirts (thank you, Grandma!), crowns, jewelry, boas, shoes, lip gloss, nail polish, the whole bit. As each little girl arrived, we helped her get dressed and then they colored, did princess puzzles, and decorated cookies. (Thanks for all your help, Kristi!) They were so cute!

Tonight was just for our family. After baths, we watched Anna open her family gifts and cards. Since we already ate her cake, we put some candles in a brownie. Yes, I admit, it is a little ghetto, but it made her happy. We are so grateful that she is a part of our family.

From her very first moments, Anna has filled our lives with sunshine. I'll never forget the first moment I saw her how much she looked like my mom and how grateful I was to have a little girl. She seemed so miraculous.

She has not ceased to delight us since.

What an angel-girl, who loves everyone and is loved by all. Happy Birthday, Princess Anna! May you always have a smile on your face and a dance in your toes! We love you to infinity and beyond!

Happy, happy birthday, sweet Anna! What a party! Beautiful cake and amazing loot bags (skirts and boas! Every little girl's dream!). Glad it was such a special day, er, days. Girls turning 4 SHOULD be celebrated on multiple days!

Happy Birthday! I can't believe my oldest is four either.
