Our little birthday girl

This week our little Olivia turned 4!

She fills our life with laughter, love and all things girly.

She is strong willed, smart, funny, decisive, caring, precocious, silly, a tad bit whiney (we’re working on it) , and loving. I couldn’t imagine our lives without her!

She is our little princess. She loves to wear dresses, nail polish, lip gloss and hair accessories.

 Join me and take a trip down memory lane as I relive this past 4 years that have come and gone in a flash.

Can you believe it’s been 4 years already!

We try to have a special day with each of our children on their birthdays. After dropping the big kids off at day camp we went to our favorite cupcake shop. {ok, it’s the only one I have ever been to and it’s owned by a friend of mine, so I’m a little biased }

We then went home to play a few games and wait for daddy, who was coming home early for the big day!

Olivia LOVES games!!! and me…not so much. But I happily obliged this sweet girl, because after all…it was her birthday 😉

Steven surprised Olivia with flowers!

 

Once daddy arrived home off to the mall we went. We let her choose where she wanted to have lunch… and the mall it was {???} but it worked out for us because we were headed to Build a Bear anyway.

This was her first time ever in the store, and thanks to a generous gift card from Grandma and Papa she had a blast picking out her bear and going through all the steps.

We ended the day with a trip to the toy store where we let her pick out a toy cash register that she has had her eye on.

It was fun to spend some alone time with her. It isn’t often when we get to do this and I realized that I need to make an effort to set aside alone time with her and each of them more often. After all, it won’t be long before they are all grown up…look at how fast 4 years has gone!
