“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Birthday 3/22/07

four years have flown by so quickly...I feel like I just had her! she went from infant to preschooler in record time..at least that's what it seems like.

She decided she wanted to go to the zoo.We couldn't make a move without the map..

She wanted me to take a picture of every single animal, living or bronze...I wont put all of them on here:)

So many incredible creatures, and she was fascinated by a spitting frog!

Stopped at a toy store and we had the place to ourselves for almost an hour before we left to go watch Tangled.

We had an amazing time, just me and my girl...I'm very grateful.
Everyone was ready for cake at the end of the day.

Thank you everyone for your concern...I'm feeling better now and I've actually made a few things to show you all very soon.
