Our little girl is 4!

On Sunday we celebrated Aubree's 4th birthday. I can't believe our little girl is already 4. She already acts like a teenager. We are so grateful to have Aubree in our family. She makes my life so much easier. Every time I think of the angel she has personally been for me, I get emotional. I am so grateful to be her mom. She is so special.
My sister's put some dress up clothes on Tann and he looked like a little pioneer girl.
These pictures aren't in very good order. Anyways, since Aubs birthday was on Sunday, we celebrated stuff on Saturday and went with a bunch of her cousins to a jump and bounce place. The picture above is Trav with Eric watching people on the bull riding thing. (ps: It is so nice to have Eric home!)
This is the morning of Aubree's birthday. She got some balloons with donuts, barbie, princess and the frog jewelry, and a happy birthday sign.
Last night, my mom got a Santa to come over and see the kids and give them each a present.
My sister made Aubree's cake this year. The kids loved it.
Aubree blowing out her candles. She loved being sung to and having all the birthday attention.
Aubree loved her presents. My parents got her a Fancy Nancy doll that she hasn't put down.
Aubs is growing up too fast. This is right before she got her presents. Aubree is such a good girl and the best big sister.
This is Tanner going down the big/bouncy slide.

Aubree on the mechanical bull (Tanner didn't want to).
Andrew is smiling all of the time and cooing a lot. He had his 2 month appointment and he weighted 12lbs 3oz. I am sad that he is grown out of his 0-3 month clothes. I want him to stay this little. He is such a good baby and we love him so much.
Can't get enough of this boy!
My dad bought 4 monkey costumes at garage sales and the kids found them. The ran around the house acting like monkey's.
We took Aubree out to lunch with us to Red Robin. She was excited to be sung to and get balloons/ice cream, but the whole time they sang to her she was hiding under Eric's arm.
We have a picture like this at Red Robin when Aubree turned 1. She eats a little bit less messy now.
Aubree at the jump and bounce. We had a fun couple day of birthday celebrations and we are so we are so grateful for our little Aubs.

Happy be-lated birthday to your gorgeous 4 year old. I have my own 4 year old and she is a character every day. She never ceases to give me hugs and kisses. I love it. She is my best helper in the kitchen as well.
Anyhow, sorry I haven't called you in regards to the whole adoption thing. We don't feel it is time yet. But it happenning sooner than we think. We are just doing some praying and researching as to which direction we should go- Internationally or U.S? There is a child out there waiting to join our family, we have to make sure we find him. Love your blog!
