Sarah turns 4

My beauty turned 4 today. Where has the time gone? I know as parents we all say that - how did they get to be so big so fast? And I realize - 4 is not THAT big - but Sarah acts a lot bigger than 4 sometimes. I wish you could hear her talk, she uses the biggest words in her little Cindy Brady lisp. Grandmom mailed her a much-desired Zhu Zhu pet and Sarah kept going on about how adorable it was. Our kids have always had big vocabularies and spoken well for their age, and because of that it's been hard for me to remember at times that they are still so small - I'm often baffled when they ACT like the little kids they are, because I expect more from them based on their speech. Anyway. I think Sarah really enjoyed her birthday - we started the weekend on Friday by having a few friends over for lunch and cupcakes - pink, with sprinkles, just like the picture on her Strawberry Shortcake sticker...
On Sunday Sarah spent HOURS outside playing with William. These two had so much fun together, he really was a terrific big brother to her all day long. If only every day they could get along so well :)
William dragged her in the wagon up the hill in our backyard over and over and over again. Srsly. They were out there for HOURS doing this.
Sometimes she rode down alone, sometimes he hopped on for the trip down...
...and sometimes they tipped over! No harm done though, they were laughing the whole time.
The birthday girl gets to choose her own dinner and cake on her birthday, and Sarah went with Macaroni and Cheese and Cheesecake. Let's just say I am all cheesed out now. I think she was expecting Kraft in the blue box, but I tried to do a little better than that & made up a batch from a recipe, along with some chicken and a veggie. Need to find a little balance here, no?
I think she likes it!
So that was Sarah's big day! She really is a sweet, sweet girl with just the brightest personality. Sarah brings a smile to my face every day in one way or another, and I look forward to watching her grow and mature, and become the lovely person she's destined to be. Happy Birthday Sarah!
