August 12, 2011

Today our sweet girl turned 4! I can't believe it, she is growing up way too fast!

She got to test the cupcakes before the party and have her favorite...chocolate milk and berries! She was so excited that it was her Birthday!

Grammy gave her a cute Birthday outfit for her special day. She LOVED LOVED LOVED spinning in circles!!

We can't believe she's 4! She was so excited for her friends to come to her party, and excited that it was her Birthday. "It's my Birthday" was the first thing she said to both Chris and I when she woke up.

We had a princess party for her this year, and invited some friends over for lunch and swimming.

For lunch, we had all her favorites: princess crown pb&js, Cheetos, grapes, and "bubble drinks". Aniston hovered over the grapes...
Hayden, Tyler, baby Sydney, Tanner, Korbie, Presli, Madden and Knox all came to the party and made this Birthday girl so happy!

the slip n' slide was a hit!

Tanner, Cheryl(we live in her basement and love her!!), Aniston, and Grammy.
Presli and Aniston, 2 of the girliest girls I know!
Cheryl picked out the perfect present for the princess!
Hayden gave Aniston a ring that she spotted one day while on a weekly Old Navy trip this summer. They were both pretty excited about it!
All her friends were very helpful when it was time to open present, and they were also very sweet to give her such nice things!

more princess celebration
As a parting favor, we gave all the princes and princesses some accessories and bubble tap for the road.
Aniston got a few Happy Birthday calls, and she was happy to hear from some of her favorite people that are far away.

She played all afternoon with the new stuff she got, and then I asked her what she wanted to do for dinner and the rest of the night. She wanted to get Chick-fil-A and go to the park, and she wanted me to slide with her. We picked up dinner and headed to the park. She was excited about slidding until we started to climb up to the slide. You have to climb a rock structure, and she wanted to be carried. I almost fell off with her wrapped tightly around me, but we made it to the slide. She was very worried...

and then very terrified as we started to go down...
and decided not to do anymore slidding.

We only played for a bit, and then she wanted to get back home to all her fun toys...
