She's 4!

My little girl is actually 4! Wow! This year, I asked Kamryn what kind of a party she wanted and as you can tell from the pictures, it's "Princess" theme all the way. She also asked for a family party and since most of my family was in town, that worked out nicely too. We had it at my Sister's house and thanks to my brother and sister, the decorations were perfect....along with this birthday hat!
Cousins celebrating! I love Kamryn's expression in this picture. She is such a beautiful girl.
She got a Cinderella centerpiece for the table, but of course, she couldn't just look at it. :)
Just a little game we all know and love...."Stick the Princess on the castle." (Well, at least, it's kind of the same)
Kamryn refused to wear the blindfold so she promised she would close her eyes really tight. Uh huh, sure!
"Present Time, Present Time, Open the presents and see what's inside."

I would have shown you a close up picture of the cake, but it was only to please my darling 4 year old...not you cake critics out there!
Well, she's 4 and she is the joy of my life. We share so many of the same loves. Singing, reading, all things Disney. She is obsessed with letters and their sounds, loves playing with her princess toys, and is enjoying time on the computer too. She and her brother are really starting to get along more together and I love watching them have those precious moments where they find something they can do together. She is still strong-willed, still throws tantrums and can outscream anyone's child, but she is also becoming more loving and more tender and she finds joy in the simplest things. She loves primary and her Sunbeam class and loves Jesus. She is our gorgeous redhead and seriously, I wouldn't change a thing!

Family Fun Time and some sad Time...

We have spent a lot of time with family the last couple weeks and have loved every moment of it. This was a friendly game of soccer and Logan was totally into it.
The sad time was attending my Aunt Linda's funeral. She passed away from cancer and we were able to attend her funeral. This is Kamryn and Ellie in our car on the way home from the funeral. Kamryn was so excited that her cousin came with us in our new car. It's fun to be able to have extra room for family!
Logan had a little too much dessert at the luncheon following the funeral. It wore him out! :)
When we got back to my sister's house, we had some monsoon type weather. This is Ellie basking in the warm rain. It was a fun little storm. :)

4th of July 2010

One thing I LOVE about Fontana is that fireworks are legal. So celebrating the 4th, Fontana style, is becoming a favorite tradition. We had a bbq with some good friends and then came outside to watch the MANY fireworks going off in the neighborhood, plus did some of our own.

What you observe here is Logan in a jacket. Yes, it was a chilly 4th of July in California.

Trying to get comfortable on concrete. :)
Good friends! Kamryn with the Rambow girls.
Thanks to the headphones, Kamryn actually stayed outside to watch some of the fireworks this year. YEAH!
SPARKLERS!!

Mary will love that I took the time to lighten this picture! Thanks Bartletts for hosting another fabulous 4th of July!

One Silly boy!

If you listen carefully to the TV, you can hear some music. This is what Logan is moving too.

First Beach Trip of the Summer!






It was the perfect day with our family and friends. However, 5 hours at the beach proved to be a little long for us pasty white folk and we all came away with some kind of burn. Ah, but it was worth it. This video is proof!
