Birthday Celebrations

I'm four! The day started out with blueberry waffles with berries and a whipped cream smiley face.

Next we went to Alexa's school in the afternoon to participate in the "Circle of Life" celebration for her birthday. She is looking a little nervous here because she doesn't know what to expect. Hmmm...who could that young boy in the green be sitting next to her? Yep. It's Michael.

For the celebration Alexa walked around her birthday candle in the center of the room 4 times while carrying the globe to signify one rotation for each year of her life. For each year I talked about her favorite things for that year and she showed the photographs. She was a little embarrassed but it was so cute. Then we all sang "Happy Birthday" and she passed out her treats. It was really cute and a nice way to celebrate.

These are her teachers, Ms. Renee and Ms. Lindsay. Alexa loves them and so do we!

After school we went over to my parent's house for a little party and dinner. Here Alexa is hugging her new nightgown from Poh Poh and Papa...the girl loves her nighties!

She loved her dinosaur card from them too.

The gumball machine! We told Alexa that she could chew gum when she turned 4 so we had to get her this. By the look on her face she was really excited.

Eagerly awaiting her birthday cake after dinner. She kept asking "Papa are you done yet?"

Blowing out her candles.

Yum! What a great birthday !!!!
