This one above was by far my favorite. I love her little nose crinkle.

Lucy turned 4 on Saturday and this much anticipated event was quite the party. On Thursday I brought cupcakes to her preschool class for snack and they sang happy birthday to her.
Anyway, then on Saturday we took our kids to Chuck E Cheese. We've never been there and I was plesantly suprised. It was pretty reasonably priced and much cleaner than I anticipated. Also, we went at 10 am on Saturday and it wasn't very crowded yet. There were TONS of games and rides for the kids and Lucy loved running around and trying everything. Isak was mostly concerned with how many tickets which games could get him and we ended up with a 100 total. I think Isak traded them in for some air rocket gun.
The food was better than I thought as well. I think we would go again and maybe just do the games, it was pretty inexpensive for just the tokens.
Lucy picked out this Cinderella birthday ribbon a few days ago at Wal-Mart and of course had to wear it to her party. We also stopped at Target and got her some new clothes. I bought a bunch online but had to take most of them back because they were too small. Apparently she's grown out of most of her size 5 stuff. Sad, sad day.
Lucy requested a Cinderella cake and she had a Cinderella doll already so I stuck it in a cake a decorated it. Pretty much the easiest cake I have done, other than it took forever to frost it.
*The same size as her almost 6 year old brother, but we don't tell him that.
*Goes to preschool twice a week and knows the names of everyone in her class and can recognize most of her friends names printed.
*Is happy 90 percent of the time. She is almost always bubbly and smiling and positive. Other than when she is not like when she has just gotten up from a nap and she can only growl.
*Loves Cinderella and princesses but also really still loves her angry birds and playing with her
*Started Sunbeams at church and is very excited to be in the big kid Primary and I've heard she especially loves it when she can have the microphone.
*I find her singing to herself throughout the day and she entertains herself and plays by herself fairly well.
*Assumes everyone she meets loves her and wants to be her best friend.
*Her favorite food is "chicken sandwiches" which is just turkey or ham sandwich. She asks for them all day long.
*Loves to listen to stories and look at books. Play with playdough. Paint. Help me make cookies and crack my eggs for me.
*Carries her pink deedee (blanket) with her still and can't sleep without it. She's on like her 6th deedee I think.
*Loves to come with me to the store and sit in the cart. She also loves to sneak things into the cart when I'm not looking that I will buy and not realize till I get home...
*Loves to see her name written and anything starting with an L.
She is a lot of fun and definitely going to challenge us as she gets older. I'm so grateful Isak is older and can keep track of her for us, we're going to need it!
