Happy 4th Birthday Clare!

July 3, 2015

Oh sweet girl I can’t believe you are already FOUR. You truly bring so much life to our house. I pray that you always know the fullness of life and find the ways to celebrate even the small things. This world needs so many more of you! We love you and enjoy celebrating you!

Ice cream and presents for breakfast.

Storms and lots and lots of rain mean indoor play is your ticket today. Thank goodness Julius is here to play also.

Aunt Jenny and Julius brought Henry Hugglemonster. I guess we’ll have to join the 21st century and find out who he is. HA. Isn’t he cute though?!

Thank goodness the sun came out mid-afernoon and there was time to enjoy the present from Papa…the water gate. We call it StarGate. Seriously cool, right?!

Thankfully, Elizabeth was happy to play after her nap. It was a great surprise for her also.

Sweet Max was more content to avoid the grass and the cold water also.

Gotta love sisters.

Silly brothers are pretty great also.

Katie made the best little birthday cakes. Cute, right!?

Nate has been repurposing an unused/broken baby bed we had in our attic. Thankfully, he has learned to humor me when I get an idea in my head. Katie & I tried several options to get these little gems to stand up without falling over. There has to be a better option. Of course, I headed to Pinterest, but without success. Okay. So what do I really need? Something with holes would work perfectly. Next option was to head to the garage and look around. This cute little piece was perfect. Thankfully, the drill bit was the right size not to split the wood or drop the cones too far down. A quickly little paint and wah-la. This is awesome. I’m so in love. We make a pretty good team Nate & I. Isn’t it great.

In addition to the super cool dessert board, I’m so thankful for our super-sized table that holds it. The table was imagined in my mind and created by Nate & my dad. I love it. (It has a few structural issues still, but I love it!) Look, there are 11 people around it for dinner!!

Dinner with all of us and our friends/Clare’s Godparents. It’s a great way to celebrate the evening of a four-year-old birthday – complete with food and presents and fun!
