So hard to believe my lil girl is 4!!!
This was such a joyful day for daddy and I! You surprised us with and early arrival (4 weeks)! Mommy's water broke at school while teaching! You were a good baby and mommy loved to sing and cuddle with you every day!
Happy 1st Birthday! 2008
You had a special cake all to your self as we thought you had an allergy but you were healed from it!! :) We had a fish theme at this party and it was at a park near the river. You were growing up so fast, just learning to walk!
Happy 2nd Birthday-2009
Butterflies were the theme and you had a lot of fun when we went outside to play. We had recently just moved and you had already made several new friends that came to your party. You were starting to talk talk talk learning new words each day.
Happy 3rd Birthday-2010
This was your first "princess" themed party. You looked stunning in your purple dress which matched your dolly who you named Belle. Your personality really started to pop out here as you would let us know what you liked and disliked.
Happy 4th Birthday- 2011
"Tangled" is your favorite movie with Princess Rapunzel. You sing and dance to all her songs and you have been talking about your party all week because you had so much fun. You had a big year as you became a big sister, what an amazing big sister you are. You love to hold your brother and you help mommy with changing your brother by throwing his diapers away and you get burp rags for me often. What a great little servant heart you have!
Mommy, Daddy, and your baby brother love you so much. I feel so blessed that God has entrusted me to raise you. You are growing up to be a beautiful person inside and out and you teach me many lessons as each day passes. I continue to pray for you daily. I pray that your heart would continue to grow in love with our Heavenly Maker, I pray for your future and I even pray for your future husband. I ask for guidance often but you truly are a good girl and you make mommy and daddy proud. This last year I had so much fun doing crafts, having our shopping dates, cuddle times, and water park adventures. I am looking forward to this next year and I trust and know you will continue to grow in love with Christ and walk the straight and narrow path!
Love, hugs and kisses,

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
