4 Years Old

Before I get into the birthday party, I'll explain my decorations on the bus. Carson-Dellosa is a publisher of teaching supplies - borders, posters, bulletin boards, etc. When I was teaching school I bought the poster (that is on the ceiling) to use in my classroom. This summer I was in a teacher supply store and found a notepad with the same design on it. An idea popped into my head that I could use the notepad as seat markers and right the rules on the poster and wa-la! The seating on my bus is youngest in the front to oldest in the back. So, I wrote grade levels on the notepad and taped it up above the seat. I wrote the rules on the poster and taped it on the ceiling. So, that's that!

Halee had her 4th Birthday yesterday. We had a little party at Bible camp. The theme was Curious George.

There were lots of kids there. We just rounded up whoever was there for a whack at the pinata.

Halee got the first and last whacks.

Then we had some cake. Halee chose this cake which I found on the internet and baked up at camp.

4 candles to blow out. The wind was calm enough at that moment for her to do the blowing.

Then a few presents.

She seems so grown up to me know. I can't believe that she is 4 years old already. I do enjoy her since of humor. She loves to be funny and squish up her face and laugh. She also loves to talk non-stop all the time. She wants to know every night before she goes to sleep where we are going and what we are doing the next day. She likes to tell me good job when I do what she wants me to. I love her!

Ahhh - so cute, the cake, the piniata, but especially the girl. She seems grown up to me too and Clint saw this and said he thought she seemed older than 4. The birthday party at camp will always be a special memory!
