Annabelle's 4th Birthday

It's true. My sweet little Annabelle Rae turned four on 10-10-10! The poor kid had to spend her birthday driving home from Utah, so we spread the celebrating out a bit. The day before we had cupcakes and opened presents at Grandma and Grandpa Yates' in Elwood. Then more cake and cupcakes later that night at a family BBQ in Logan.

Josh and I went into a Children's Pace outlet store while we were on vacation and I was shocked when Josh picked out sparkly pink high tops and insisted we get them for Annabelle! Of course she loves them!
When we finally made it back to MT on her actual birthday there was more cake and pizza to celebrate at Grandma and Grandpa Kroll's house.
And what could be in that big box. A scooter!?! Can it be!?!
Every little girl needs a pink scooter.
It is hard for me to believe that my girl is really 4! I absolutely adore her and her big personality. Here are just a few things to document what she is up to at this age:
-Still loves Dora
-Spends lots of time coloring and drawing pictures, mostly of Josh
-Enjoys reading books
-Recently changed her favorite color status from pink to purple
-Wants to help me cook everything
-LOVES gymnastics
-Says she "loves deers" so she doesn't want us to eat them
-A bit picky about what she wears, there are certain outfits she WILL NOT wear, no matter what
-90% of the time she has on her pink "cow boots"
-Adores her little sister
-Super short for her age
-Constantly searches the ground for rocks which she then gives to people as gifts
-Obsessed with jeans or "blue pants" as she calls them, says she can't wear other pants because she can't dance well in them like she does in her blue pants

I am excited to see what the next year with her will bring. I love you Annabelle Bananabelle!
