Hope Is Four

It's been a long time folks. Miss you all. Have not been well but I do want to share some happy.

Here are some photos from Hope's 4th Birthday. She turned 4 on July 3.

 Wonder Woman is her favorite super hero

 Playing with her friend Regan after a long time in the pool

Cousin Gabriel is adorable

A quiet moment with Luke, usually they are chasing each other and pinching and then complaining

She always gets shy when everyone is singing Happy Birthday

The next morning we played Fairy and the Not Nice Queen

This is what an annoyed fairy looks like

But all was good in the end

Hope has big news - she will be a big sister in late September/Early October. She's excited about this.

Love you all

WOW, she is growing up. She's beautiful!

My daughter used to cry every time someone sang happy birthday to her. Every bday pic in front of her cake she has either a scowl, or she's crying.

Oh, Hope! You know you are the most beautiful girl in the world, shy, feisty, or whatever. Love your pretty curls, girl! And your grandma is the luckiest to have YOU to take pictures of. Thank you for sharing them with me! :-)

Awww beautiful sweetie. Four years of enjoying her smiling face and fabulous thoughts. Happy Birthday, sweet one.

Feel better, Dianne. Big hugs.

Faaaaaaaaabulous shots, Dianne!

"This is what an annoyed fairy looks like."

Bwhahahahahaha! OMG...that photo cracked me up!!!

"She always gets shy when everyone is singing Happy Birthday"

Please tell Hope that Uncle Ronnie gets the same way. I get so shy and embarrassed!

And also tell Hope congratulations on being a big sister!!!

Thanks for posting today, dear lady. You're in my thoughts.

(((((((( You )))))))))

X and hugs to you and Hope!

I certainly hope you're feeling at least somewhat better. It must be so exciting for you, too, that Hope will be a big sister this fall.
Great news.

Looks like a great party! I saw something recently that had Wonder Woman in all different shapes and sizes. I'll put the link address at the bottom.

I especially love your twist on the fairy game, but it sounds pretty accurate to most fairy tale plots. ;)

And, congratulations on being a Nana again! :)

Oh, she is growing up so quickly. Congratulations, Hope, on turning 4!!! (Wonder Woman has nothing on that child) And congratulations to everyone on the upcoming arrival of Hope's sibling. Wonderful news.

Happy Elf Mom said...

Congrats on new baby! And Hope is just beautiful.

Grandma (or it is Nana, right?) wow! what fun and excitement coming up for everyone. Get well soon so you can enjoy.

The party (and the after-party) look like lots of fun.

I cannot believe HOPE is four years old....It seems like she was just born....! WOW! Those four years flew by....! She is so more adorable than ever...! And CONGRATS on another Grandchild in the oven, as they say.
I hope you are feeling somewhat better, my dear Dianne....!
