 My little Kameryn Faith is now four years old.  {Sigh}.
I can hardly believe it.
We had such a special day, celebrating this little princess.
The morning started with donuts from Daddy, and a few presents . . .
Later we welcomed our guests . . .
Great Nana and Kam didn't even plan the matchy-matchy ;)
We each grabbed a magic wand and twirled about through the house . . .
{juuuuust kidding}
But we did grab these:
{I cannot resist a chocolate cupcake, folks}
Then there were wishes made, candles blown out . . .
and even more presents to open.
The birthday girl was gracious enough to let her little sissy in on the action.
And we ended the afternoon with modeling ~ princess style.
 I'd say it was a pretty sweet day.

Now . . . the Valentine countdown is on.  And then ~ on to Kenners' birthday!

Happy 4th Birthday, Miss Kameryn!

I love all of my girls just the same.
And I can look back on each of their births and recall tiny details ~
Things that stick out, that I have tucked away in my heart.
But I have special memories, more memories with Kameryn's birth than with the others.

~ Sweet Kameryn Faith ~
I was in the hospital for nearly two weeks before they forced you out ;)
Two weeks of saying goodbye to Daddy and your two big sissies at home each and every night.
Two weeks of visits from precious friends and family.
Two weeks of ultrasounds and machines.
Until finally, they said you would be safer on the outside than on the inside.

On January 27th, 2009 at 4:12pm we got to see our tiny little 34 1/2 weeker for the first time.

You were GORGEOUS.
Machines and all ;)

And would you believe that after daily visits from NICU staff, telling me that I could expect you to have a 5-6 week NICU stay, you only stayed there for 8 hours.  You were a toughie.
Still are.
 Oh how your sissies loved you. 
And you loved them too.
You did some growing . . .

And turned into the most vibrant and joyful toddler EVER!

You have a zest for life that cannot be matched.
 I LOVE being around you.  You have this amazing way at looking at the world. 
Every day is a new adventure for you.
Copy 171 P

Then one day you weren't the baby anymore. 
You liked being the baby. 
You were great at being the "little one".
But it turned out you were FABULOUS at being the "not so little one" too.

You like to lead. 
And your little sister follows your every move.

You're a snuggler.  You love to sleep with Mama on the nights that Daddy is at work.
{And you love sneaking in to sleep with Mama and Daddy on the nights that Daddy is home}.
You have such a giving spirit.  Always willing to help out and be a friend. 
Always looking out for others.

You are a tremendous joy, Miss Kameryn.
Each morning is filled with new adventures with you!
Happy 4th Birthday, my Sweet Girl!

Winter Walk

 We've been cooped up waaaaay too long. 
We've had frost, freezing rain, freezing fog, and just general . . . freezing.
Add to that the ear infections and the sniffles . . .
We were so ready to get out of the house.

So we bundled up and headed outdoors for a Winter Walk.

I don't think I realized how beautiful Winter could be.

Generally I'm a warm-weather girl.
I don't like to be cold, I don't like the rain.
I get sad when I go days on end without seeing the sun.

But I have to say, as much as I miss the warm temps, I'm definitely finding beauty in my least favorite season, Winter.

We even found this little guy, nestled underneath the Maple Tree.

I'm definitely ready for Spring.  But I have a new-found appreciation for Winter, as well.

Out of Bed

Miss Kam may have had breakfast in bed the other day,
but yesterday,
we all made it to the table.

Thought we might be on the mend too . . .
Until last night.
Poor Miss Tay :(
Let's just say there was not a wink of sleep to be had.
So.  In to the doctor we went this morning.
Just me and the little girls. {And Gramps ~ a.k.a. Super Helper}
 And my suspicions were confirmed.
Miss Kam has an ear infection in her left ear, and Miss Tay . . .
A double ear infection that is especially nasty.
My poor little pumpkins!

10 days of antibiotics + lotsa liquids + constant snuggles +
a whole bunch of movie rentals {hopefully} = Girlies on the mend.

Alright.  Let's hear it. 
What do you to make your little lovies more comfy when they're under the weather?

Poor Miss Kam {and Miss Tay} are a little under the weather.

And that means . . .

Breakfast in bed :)


Poor little loves.  I hope they're feeling better soon!

Miss A

 We're dusting off our tiaras,
squeezing in to our gowns,
and settling in to watch the Miss America Pageant!


How 'bout y'all?

Let It Snow!

We got a little dusting of snow here . . .

And you could say that some girlies were pretty happy about it. 
Mean mama that I am, I made them at least finish their Math before heading outside. 
Then, quick as a flash, there was a flurry of coats, hats, mittens, and boots.
And a sprint to the sled.

I just adore icy, cold "Cheese" faces.

And sweet little rosy cheeks.

And then, as quick as it came, it started melting away.

I wish it would've stayed awhile longer :)

New Beginnings

A new start!
 I can't recall a time I've been more relieved and excited to exit one year, and start another.
I kept thinking that we'd have a breather after Christmas, but no.  We've been going full speed ahead, trying to fit in all sorts of fun before we're back to school.
It's been chilly!
But dry. 
So we've tried to get out and get some fresh air.
We've had several wonderful visits with dear friends.
We've been in the kitchen a LOT.  Making all sorts of treats.
That's right. 
White Chocolate covered donut holes.  
You're welcome.

We partied it up Bingo-style on New Year's Eve ;)

Mostly we've just been enjoying each day that God has blessed us with
 What wonderful things have you been doing in 2013?
