Zoe is 4!

Yes, Zoe is four years old. I remember the morning she was born. I was at work. Corey called me - they were expecting Zoe Rose to arrive sometime that day. I went to the office across the hall to let my friends know we were going to have a baby today, came back to my office to soon learn Zoe had arrived!! I had. to. work. the. entire. day. before going to see her. Oh, that was soooo hard!!

We baked a cake for her 4th....

She measured, she poured...
she watched the mixer do it's job.
Then, the hard part...
Waiting, Waiting, Waiting....

She took a rest. She wanted me to hold her while she rested.
Who could refuse that??
I rested too.

It was finally time to decorate the cake. 
She requested a smiley face
and a 4.

We did our best.
Aidan and Zoe threw on some sprinkles.



There you have it...
a cake for a sweet 4 yr. old ♥



Candles...


We sing and Zoe blows out the candles.


Her face says it all ♥

Happy Birthday, Zoe!


This is what greeted us this morning....


more white stuff...
and soooo cold.



It wasn't much snow.
BUT...
Christy insisted she drive Gina to work.
I was sure I'd be ok but she insisted.
When she came back home,
she told me it was snowing like crazy closer to Lancaster.
The roads were icy.
She told me there was a reason
(unknown to us at the time)
why she insisted she do the driving today.
I do not like to drive in those conditions.
Ever.
Thank you, Christy!!



Here comes the sun!


Bless you today!

What a total sweetie that Zoe is!! And how wonderful for you to have Christy to do that trip to the mall for you this morning!

We got a little bit of snow and now the sun is out. I think it's to go down close to zero one if these nights again. Sigh.
