Lakyn’s 4th Birthday

10 Feb

I have a 4 year old.


How did that happen?

She seems all grown up now.



The last couple of years I’ve cut back a lot on the “production” of birthday parties. Honestly, the stress of it all was way too much, so this year we let Lakyn pick a handful of friends to invite, along with having our family over, and opted for a simpler party.

She was consistent in telling me she wanted a pink birthday party and to decorate cupcakes, so that’s exactly what she got. We had the table set up with cupcakes (dairy and soy free so little sister could partake), frosting (also dairy and soy free) in piping bags, and lots of sprinkles.  I was content to just have the cupcakes be it, but wouldn’t you know that Miss L told me a week before her party that she wanted cupcakes AND a cake! It was her special day, I wasn’t going to tell her no! We also had a little photo booth for the kids (and some adults) to have fun with.








Lakyn Kay, you are such a ray of sunshine! You make everyone smile with your sweet, hilarious personality. We love to listen to you read, sing, and tell stories. At this point, we wouldn’t be surprised if you were in musicals and plays growing up, as you love to reenact everything you see on tv or read in books, and you do not shy away from attention in the slightest! There is never a dull moment with you, and for that, we thank you. We love you, we love you, we love you, baby girl! To the moon and back.
