Bailey's 4th Birthday!

 This is the birthday girl herself....Miss Bailey!!!  She was pretty excited about being 4.  She told me on the phone in the morning that the party was at 2 pm "you know" (lol) and it was raining, so she hoped it would quit before then. 
 It wasn't raining at home so we weren't surprised to see it start on the drive up.
 The party was at a "Little Gym" where Bailey takes lessons.  She also takes dance and is quite good at both.  Here she showed us some of her skills...
and we were very impressed!

Emma will follow in her sister's footsteps we think.  She normally has to sit behind a glass wall to watch her sister.  She was excited to be able to join in all the fun.  We wonder how that will go on lesson day again....


These days aren't without their tears...but aren't they cute ones????
Ahhhh....such memories!  Me, here with MY baby!!!

Finally the cake is lit and the real festivities begin....

You know, ...the horn blowing etc??

My favorite part of the day!!!

Lori's dad, Grandpa Jim helped opening gifts. Jim has his ever-ready Swiss army knife to patiently open boxes. 

Here is a gift from Lori's mom Grandma Becky who plays "present" with the girls at her house.  They take turns finding things to put in the box and surprise each other.  Cute game, I think!

Lori's side of the family....

And our family.

Happy, happy birthday, little girl!!!!

What a lucky birthday girl to be surrounded by so much love.

And how blessed her grandma is to get to share the day with her.

Looks like a fun day was had by all! Happy Birthday Bailey! I can't believe she's 4..and I didn't realize she's the same age as Cameron..they should graduate from HS the same year..hmmm..who does that sound like? Wait, I'm already having them out of school? Time flies too quick as it is. Emma's hair is growing too, it will look just like Bailey's pretty soon!

What pleasure we grandparents glean from such events. It's a shame they have to grow up.

These are wonderful times that we live in, to be able to keep record of and share these events thru blogs, a permanent record for generations now and down the road to enjoy - and yet another example of how much we are all alike. Lovely families on both sides, and great memories for all!
