Happy 4th Birthday to our Little Love

We celebrated Elise's 4th birthday about a week ago on the 4th of July. It's really hard to believe that my tiny, 5 lb. baby has turned into such a talkative little girl. Equally hard to believe is that around this time next year, I will be registering her for school. Just the thought makes me want to cry!


We had a strange combination of decorations at her party this year that included princesses, mermaids, and patriotic accents. We'd only been home from Disney for a week, so we just had a small family party that included just a few close friends. My grandmother flew in along with my cousin, so it was nice to have them along for the celebration.

Elise chose a mermaid cake, and it was pretty neat. It was made of cupcakes!

We did gifts, dinner, and cake, then took a walk over to the lake to feed the ducks. Elise rode her new scooter which was a gift from grandma & grandpa.

To cap off the evening, we watched the fireworks. As they were going, Elise said, "Those fireworks are for my birthday!"
