It seems it’s only been a few days since I was writing about Brittany’s birthday and now Faith’s birthday has come and gone without my managing to get a post up. There is nothing like a house full of preschoolers to sap away your desire to get things done. 🙂
Faith’s birthday began with a fair amount of excitment. She marched into Sunday School class and shouted: “It’s my birthday!” Arms flung wide, grinning from ear to ear, with all the joy and exuberance that only a four year old can muster.
After Church, we had a party for Faith at the house with various friends from her preschool class plus all of the requisite cousins, grandparents, Aunts and such. They made princess crowns (or prince crowns as the case may be), played musical chairs, and pin the tale on the donkey. There were of course mountains of presents — far too many, they reach a point of numbness at this age — and a cake (which came out much better than Brittany’s) with a pink and purple VW Beetle — or as Faith would say, a yellow “Herbie” on it.
All in all, it is another reminder that time is flying by (although four is not so jolting a reminder as twelve, thank goodness!).
