LYLA Turns Four! ♡♡♡♡

Precious girl, absolutely FULL of personality and smiles! This past Sunday, the 7th, was Lyla's fourth birthday. We spent a delightful day at Christian's and Dawn's, where the kids were SO excited to have us… and, we were SO excited to be there.

Needless to say, we were wined and dined like royalty. Grillmeister Christian had his super-sized Weber filled to capacity. And for the family insiders, he even made tip-tips. :-) Dawn had baked not one, but three cakes to please all tastes. Her stab at decorating Lyla's main cake was great, with Hunter singing her praises, repeatedly. Special boy. Chloe added her super-duper robot (made from Ly's empty shipping boxes from various relatives) to the party mix. Clearly an imaginative artist.

As for Lyla, well I'm here to tell you that the Little Princess clearly knew that it was HER day. This variety of excitement could not even be surpassed on Christmas morn! So adorable and smart as a whip. Kisses and hugs were flying in the room, as she opened her gifts. What to play with first? Ah, yet another new dolly won the spot!! I think lovely G'pa Frank takes the prize for his choice.

A great day. So thankful for our awesome family and five GrandLoves. Not exactly sure just what we'd be doing without them all. Giving thanks and…

Happy Birthday, Sweetness!
