Happy Birthday Heidi!

Yesterday, our youngest girlie turned a big girl 4-years-old. Cliche, but, Holy Cow! how is that possible? She is such a cutie! No danger of this one getting lost in our big family. This one knows her mind and lets everyone one know it - all the while smiling at us in that irresistible way!

We enjoyed lunch at Red Robin (especially the ice cream sundae!).

Later Dad worked on the cake amidst several admirers looking for a frosting handout.

The finished cake. What that man can do with toothpicks and an orange peeler is amazing!

Blowing out the candles in her new Jessie hat.

Lovin' the new Jessie boots!

We enjoyed our cake during a showing of....what else?....Toy Story 3!


  1. She is SOOO Adorable! Especially in cowgirl hat and boots!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I am way past impressed with that cake! You have one Talented Man! :)

    BTW, I totally agree about timing passing way too fast! My baby is now 6 and I don't know how that happened!

  2. Awww! She is soooo sweet! Love the new boots and hat! Seriously stinkin cute! Give her a little blink, blinnk for me! :)
