Look who's 4 years old now! Where does the time go? As we watch our sweet girl growing too quickly, she is soooo excited to be such a "big girl" now! Almost every sentence lately ends with the words, "because I am four now!". She wants to make sure that we all remember. She also points out quite often that she is older than Sophie now. Although that won't last for long as Sophie will be four in January. But we will let her enjoy her reign for the next few weeks.
A beautiful princess cake!
I am four, four, four! See the pretty flower that my auntie can make from palms.
And in case you missed the news...I am four! And my Ba Ba bought this huge #4 balloon for me to celebrate with.
She sooo carefully and methodically opened her gifts this year and loved each and every one. Most of my present opening pics did not turn out so well.
Here is the new dollhouse that she received that she is loving along with her new Little P*t Shop.
Ella and her cousin Hanna
The newest addition to the Walker family is Dave's sister's baby...named Myles. He is a beautiful baby and very, very good baby! This picture is not so good and I did not have a chance to get too many pics of him with the party going on. Trena, Dave's sister, kind of surprised Ryan(who is not a fan of baby holding!) by placing Myles in his arms ...note the look on his face. lol! I had to capture that!
The slide show below is Ella opening gifts from her Hengdong brother, Sam. They were best buddies and crib mates in China. We do not live close to one another, but Sam's mom, Tammy, and I make sure the 2 keep in touch and remember one another. I want to share these pictures so that Sam can watch Ella "She She" open the gifts he sent her. Oh, how she loved her gifts! And the Mortimer Christmas Manger book is wonderful...if you don't have it, keep an eye out for it while you are out shopping. Cute story about a mouse learning the story of Jesus!
On another note....I want to apologize for my slacking lately in Blogland. I do not have much computer time these days and having to work full time while being Mom to four is catching up with me lately. Please be patient with me as I hope to regain some ME time and to be able to catch up with everyone more regularly after the Holiday season. Blessings to YOU!!!!
