Sunday Snapshot {Avery's Birthday!}

Yep, I know it is Monday....
I had every intention of posting yesterday....
But somehow, Yesterday got the best of me!

Ni Hao Y'all

Avery's 4th birthday was on Saturday!!
All week long she was excited to celebrate her 'Happy Birthday'.
Every time we mentioned that her birthday was in a few days she would do a little skip and say 'wooo-hooo'!
She is so stinkin' cute!

We practiced asking how old she was going to be on her 'Happy Birthday'.
She responded with the appropriate amount of fingers.
Then she reaffirmed how old 'Shea-dell' is....

Avery:  "Shea-dell five??? "
Shea:  Yes, Avery I am five!  I will ALWAYS be older than you!"
(Thanks Shea for that added but unnecessary info!)

Then she wanted to know how old Momma is....
How about if I save that conversation for another post....entitled something like...."Older {Momma} but, Wiser.....(hopefully)"

I asked her what she wanted for her birthday....
Avery only wanted balloons and a 'Happy Birthday' cake!
How sweet is that???

Here are her balloons....

And her cake....

She did receive some of these.....

Earlier in the day, for a special birthday treat, I took all three girls to our local clay studio to paint some pottery....

Avery thoroughly enjoyed her little self......

Actually, we all had a great time....

Happy Birthday my darling girl!!!
