Happy Birthday, Bethany!

Our Four Year Old
I remember the day you were born...
And I can't believe it's been four years!
I have loved watching you grow and learn
I have loved getting to know your sweet, funny and fiery personality.

Opening presents from family.
Thanks Grandpa, Grandma, Granna, Abby and Maddy!

The Birthday Spread--
see more of this over at Of Such is the Kingdom
Yay for the Garden Party!

We made hats and decorated watering cans

And ate cake and opened presents.
Thanks everyone for coming and celebrating with us!

Bethany's Daily Art

Bethany now spends large amounts of time with a marker and a huge stack of paper turning out picture after picture. Each pic has a story. The above is a flower.

This is a playground--each section has a line for playing--something like ping pong, I think.

This is a tomb with a ladder.

The left part of this is a rocking chair and a tv.
The right part is a flower.

This is the earth.

Not all of this one was explained, but the bue part is "a table that bounces like a trampoline with a ladder on top of it."

Yesterday, B began to sign her pictures. This is a safe place for mommas, daddies and babies to rest.

This is an apple and a play ground.
