Cille's 4th BirthDAY

Every real birthDAY at our house must begin with a birthday breakfast!  Four muffins for a four year old girl! 

After breakfast, we headed to the mall for some birthday pictures...
They had requested that I wear a coordinating shirt so that we could take some parent-child photos.  I was not really camera ready that morning, but Stella is always willing to pose so she took some sister pictures with Cille...
My pretty girls...
After the photography, Cille went to school for a little while to share some birthday cupcakes with her friends.  Once she starts kindergarten she won't get to do that anymore because of her summer birthday, so I want her to have as many chances to be the birthday girl at school as possible.  I do not have photos of that.  That night, Mawmaw and Pawpaw joined us for some dinner at Chili's and of course Cille's favorite: MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKE!  



This dessert is a big deal for our family since there aren't too many restaurant desserts that Stella can have.  This one is peanut and tree-nut free, baby!
Brother likes it, too...



Back at home it was time for more presents!





Cille was so excited to get this book.  We gave one to one of her friends and she really wanted to keep it for herself.  It is the story of Daniel told from the lion's point of view.  Very cute...













Mawmaw and Pawpaw never come with gifts for just one kid, so Stella and Watts had surprises too.  Watts got several swords, and he immediately put them to use.  His favorite pastime is sword fighting, and he will grab any sword-like object and yell, "Guard!" which really means, "En garde!"

Looks like Cille should have been a little more on her guard...
Cille had a wonderful birthday.  I can't believe that this sweet baby is already four years old!  Where did the time go?  I love her more each day.  Stay spunky, Cille!
