This girl cracks us up:

At home she is always talking to herself or someone about something or someone.

She says like the word “like” … well LIKE all the time.

She is a total diva and LOVES everything girly and pink.

Well, today she turns 4, and so we did her yearly photo shoot. We have a problem because of the 280 pictures we took of her, we love them all! She has a different expression every second and loves to be in front of the camera.

Her shoot was an entire night event. We first started out by washing and curling her hair. She was in her glory! Next, she got to pick out her favorite color of nail polish and get her nails painted. Again… she was in her glory! She knew it was her special night to get just *her* pictures taken. So out the entire family went to focus on her. I don’t know where she learns this stuff, but she definitely had poses for us and the cameras. Afterwards, we went to Cold Stone Creamery to end the fun evening. These are the memories we love making. We will spare you with posting the 280 pictures, but we will be taking up the next several posts to get our absolute favorites in.
