Happy Birthday Morgan!

I can't believe I have a four year old! How did that happen? I mean high school is four years long and you think that is never going to end. And now four years goes by in a blink! Morgan is all girl. ALL GIRL. I don't know where she got it from but I think we are in trouble when the teen years roll around! Oh well, we wouldn't have her any other way!

Here are some pictures of her birthday. We had a tea party with chocolate and strawberry milk. Some of the girls wanted to mix the flavors...yuck. By the way, I think I may pay her not to have birthday parties in the future! haha



Morgan after her party showing me how old she is.


Whitney copying mommy. :)


Opening her gifts. She got a lot of art stuff which was SO nice! She has been drawing and coloring a lot! She has never been interested in it until a month or two ago and it has been so nice!


We were grasping for straws here. Why does an hour and a half seem so long when you are entertaining little kids? :)


Everyone singing happy birthday.


Morgan loving the attention.


Make a wish! (Note to self: kids don't care how good things taste, don't waste your time making yummy things. Just serve pre-made things, much easier and faster....and you won't eat the leftovers!)
I can make some pretty tasty things, but I can't make them cute. I tried last year to make a fun cake...it looked horrible and tasted like pure sugar, so this year we just went for taste...strawberry buttercream frosting mmmm.


Party favors. We had a bunch of different candies that the girls got to choose from and we filled their tea cups with what they wanted.



My awesome decorating skills. :) haha Lets face it I can plan and delegate things pretty well but when it comes to me doing them by myself...not so good. Oh well at least she got decorations right? :)


She says funny things all the time. I need to write more of them down, but here are some things:

~She dances a lot and one day she was dancing and says, "Mom, these are my moves."
~I don't remember why she said this but she was talking to me and said, "I'm just freaking out."
~When she answered Jeff the other day she said, "sure thing Dad"
~"Strawberry milk comes from cows that eat strawberries huh Mom."
~"Mom, you're a cow." - nice huh

We love you so much Morgan and can't believe how big and smart you are. I can't wait for all the fun things to come but for now, can't I just push pause and enjoy this a little longer? :)

I still crack up about that time that she was having a total meltdown around bedtime. And she kept saying, "Now, I am not going to get married!" That was so funny. She was totally serious! Love that girl! Happy Happy Birthday Morg!
