Sophia turned four last week! Goodness. I really can't believe it's been four whole years since this little lady made her grand entrance into this world. Our lives were forever changed and infinitely blessed that day. Her feisty, kind, and loving spirit is a perfect fit in our family puzzle. These days she is smitten with ballerinas and all things "fancy", so to celebrate her day we had a "fancy" cookout complete with shish kabobs and a pink strawberry cake. Our hayride plans were rained out, but just before the rain hit Stephan took Levi and Sophia out and let them 'drive' his truck around in the pasture. Then we ate, played outside in between showers, opened presents, read her new books (Angelina and Olivia...of course), watched a movie, and tossed around flashing party light balloons (a present from Levi). Everyday for months Sophia faithfully asked if today was her birthday. It made my heart happy for her to go to bed pleased as punch over this much anticipated day. Now she's on to asking if it's time for Levi's birthday yet. I do believe the girl likes a good party.
