Yesterday she was 3, Today she is 4!

Today was Anna's birthday! She is as precious as can be! It is hard for me to believe my little girls turned 4 today!

Anna LOVES her big sister! In fact she may idolize her!

Anna's favorite thing to do is to play on the beach... in the sand and the water!

I have never seen a child who delights so much in playing in the sand and the water!

We saw a sea star (formerly know as the starfish) in the water and scooped it up! She was not at all afraid! Big sissy Sarah did not want to touch it!

She has been taking swim lessons and has turned into quite the fish!

SSHHHHHH- we are downplaying the whole birthday thing! We will celebrate once we are home with the fam! An orange push up was all she needed after dinner. And YES, we sang Happy Birthday!!

The family at home... it looks so small and lonely! We need more kiddos in this picture!

Our girls... so far!
Happy Birthday Anna!

(Hurry and get home Emma and Ellie)

HaPpY BiRtHdAy, Anna!!! Wow, what a big girl! But ummm, perhaps you could try to be a less ornery four-year old than someone else I know. I'm just stayin'...your mom would appreciate it.

I'm going to bed. I'm exhausted. From my four-year old.

David and Sarah said...

oh my goodness the injuries!!!
I vote the girls go to China too - Sarah maybe clingy but it might help her feel established and let the girls know she was there and her relationship in the family too before coming home to them later. Just a thought. I bet Katie would be a great help - for sure! Anyway, glad to see you are enjoying the beach again:)
