It’s hard to believe our little girl is four already! This year her birthday party was on her actual birthday, which was really fun!
Beatrice, you requested a bird party with your favorite people! Your daddy made the invitations, asking everyone to celebrate with “birds galore” and boy did we have birds!
Chocolate bird cake:
Before the party, we had pancakes for breakfast. Shaped like birds, of course!
We spent much of the week prior to your birthday making bird crafts to use as decorations. It was such fun to work with you and Sam on the projects and I know you two enjoyed making everything.
We played “pin the bird in the nest”, smashed cascarones, had cake and really celebrated the completion of your fourth year! While you received many nice gifts, the best thing I have witnessed this year is Sam becoming your buddy. You do silly things together and play games and call out, “Come on, Sam! Let’s go have some fun!” and take his hand and run around. It’s a delight. I hope you two develop a strong friendship. In fact, aside from a strong relationship with Jesus, that is my biggest prayer for you both.
