Hood #7 Turns Four…

January 19th, 2012 · 18 Comments

We haven’t had a birthday for a while and to tell you the truth I am kind of glad,

Our kids are growing up way too fast…


But the time has come for my little mouse to turn a fabulous four!!!


My wearer of hats…


My fairy in training… serious training…


My explorer of note…


My girl who will try almost anything in the name of science…


Who cannot resist a picnic…


Or a trick…


Or a hairdo for that matter…


And more hats to hide some of those self-inflicted hairdo’s!!!


To my swimmer…


My artist of note…


My girl who has made waiting an art form!!!


My inventor of games…


My believer in all things wonderful…


And my helper, long after others have gone inside…


Not to mention an avid reader of books!!!


Happy Brilliant Birthday… I can’t wait for another fun year with you!!!


Three was thrilling…

Two was tremendous…

One was Wonderful…

I can’t wait to see what four is going to be!!!

    She is such a cutie! Congratulations on #7 turning 4 I have a pixie fairy of my own, who is also almost 4 and spends most of her days running around naked. She sends a happy birthday to #7 and says “she would make a good friend ’cause she has a happy face”
