It's almost here!

Summer Lily's 4th birthday party is this Sunday. That means tomorrow is cleaning day and this week has been "it's almost your party!" week. I love birthday parties, but none moreso than my girls'. We have been planning on giving Summer Lily a little digital camera for her birthday, as she loves using Paul's and always wants to use it to take her own pictures for doin' scrapbooks with (that's her little phrase.. doin' scrapbooks with.) So my parents and Paul and I are giving her a camera. Suddenly this week she's just been talking non-stop about a digital camera.. her very own little camera.. with maybe a loop to put her wrist, or maybe her neck through, so she won't drop it. But not that kind of camera with the film, like mama's camera, no. She likes the kind that dada has... what's it called again? Oh yeah. A digital camera. She wants a digital camera for her birthday -- oops, no, wait, she would like a digital camera for her birthday please.

She's going to be thrilled when she actually sees it, and I can't wait.

Even when she's not talking about what kind of camera she wants and how she might hold it carefully, she's still excited about her birthday. She wants to make sure there are cheesies there to eat, since Addison Blue loves them so much, and she wants to make sure all of her aunts and cousins are coming. She jumped up and down, clapping her hands, when she heard we had pink balloons...

She's just so darned sweet. So cute. So adorable. So funny.
And I simply cannot believe she is four. That is crazyness.
She is brilliant, and she loves art and I think she draws amazing things. She has such great thoughts and ideas. She is a bit nutty, but I think it's that same thing that makes her a bit nutty that makes her so incredible. She is the most beautiful little thing I've ever seen.

I never knew it would be like this.

oh my gosh you are killing me with SLs talk. She sounds too sweet. SHe's got Arielle beat, mine got her first film camera this past month for her SIXTH birthday. LOL She loves it. She was planning all the things she'd take pictures of when she got it. It was so cute.

I love throwing my kids' parties too. So fun to see them so happy, in entertain mode, play mode, excited for new things mode. Its a huge rush.

Is Summer Lily excited to scrapbook her own photos? Arielle wants to take scrapbooking after ballet. LOL So I'm just going to see about taking her to our first ever crop together. Such a fun hobby to pass down to the kids!

Have a fun week cleaning and preparing!
