They grow up so quickly!

My oldest little girl turned 4 time flies! She is growing up and no matter what I do, I can't seem to stop it! I always tell her not to grow up, but her response is always the same.

So matter-of-factly she says, "but I have to grow up."
"Why?" I respond.
"Because I can't reach anything." she says.

We had a lovely little family birthday party at home last night. Hubby sent us on a scavenger hunt for her gifts. Each present had a little note attached with a clue to where the next gift could be found. We had lots of fun searching under beds, in closets, on the swingset and even in the mailbox. After that we had a wonderful little chocolate cake with vanilla icing (picked out by the birthday girl) that was lovingly hand decorated by the birthday girl and her little sister. The icing and sprinkles on top of the cake were and inch thick, but the girls loved it. We're planning a larger birthday party for her in a couple weeks at Chuck E. Cheese.

Ella started preschool this year, which she totally loves. Her little sister on the other hand, just can't get used to the idea of a strange person taking Ella out of our car in the mornings. She cries and cries for her big sister...well, until I can distract her with some candy or juice. It is just the most precious thing ever...especially because they are very competitive at home. Eva likes to have your attention at all times and absolutely hates to share.
