You say it's your birthday....


How do four years go by so quickly? Our little Sarah is growing up before our eyes. Tuesday she celebrated her 4th birthday. It is so funny how in just four short years your life can change completely. It is truly a miracle, a blessing, a challenge, and an adventure to be a mother. But it is, after all, the best job in the world.

To celebrate her birthday, we got dinner at "Old McDonald's", had cake and ice cream with a few neighbors, and then used our web cam to open presents with Grandma and Grandpa Hunger. It is fun that even though we live away from family, we can still have a little party with the fam.

The old standard "blowing out the candles" picture

So excited to be 4
For the last few days she keeps saying, "Yeah, I can do that because I'm 4 now!" (no matter what it may be, she thinks she is big stuff now she's four)

I think Emma must be really excited Sarah is four too... or maybe she's excited for the cake?

I love this picture. It's like she's thinking, "Okay... if I just smile one more time, maybe they'll let me open my presents!"
The chair she's sitting in was what Dennis & I gave her for her first birthday. We made it with the help of my parents and grandma. I love to see how big she's gotten!

And here she is... ages 1, 2, 3, and 4!

The birthday girl is adorable, and I love the cake too! I have to agree being a mom is the best job ever! I'll have to try out the web cam idea with my parents.

Happy Birthday, Sarah!!! Can't believe how big she's gotten. I remember her from our Nursery days!

I love your cakes!! I keep on telling myself that I'm going to hire you to do a cake for one of our birthdays, but I never plan far enough ahead to do it!!! :( One day...

P.S. I love the picture of you and Dennis on the beach.

Such a cute girl, it sounds like a perfect birthday. She looks so much like Emma in that picture of her when she is two, they are definitely sisters.
