Brooklyn's 4th Birthday

Brookie had her first friend birthday party and I'd have to say it was a success. All the girls came dressed as their favorite princess and we went to the hair school my sister-in-law is going to and each girl got their hair, nails and makeup done. They all loved it!!

Brookie, Olivia, Eva, Lexi and Mia

They were watching girls get their hair washed.
Brookie getting her nails done. She didn't want to get her hair done.

Here are the princess all pretty and ready to party!!

We headed back to the house and did some fun crafts.

Then Brookie opened presents

Then she blew out her candles and they had cupcakes!!

On her actually birthday we went to lunch to Cafe Rio (she picked) with the family and that night Lane and I took her to a new place called Incredible Pizza. No, the pizza was not incredible. The food was just okay but they had a bunch of arcade games, miniature bowling and miniture golf which were both a big hit. Looks like I only got pictures of the bowling but that was probably her favorite.

I can't believe she is 4. She is such a big helper to me and has so much personality to her. We just love her! She even allowed Hudson to slobber on her!

Her first day of Preschool

Brooklyn has been dying to go to preschool. We live across the street from a school and during the school year she sits at the window and stares at them and always asks if she can go to school. I told her when she was 4 she could go. Her birthday is September 2nd so she misses the deadline by 1 day! So she will go to 2 years of preschool and then go to kindergarten when she is 6. I thought we would have no problem with her going to school since she always asked if she could go. Well. . .when we went to go meet her teacher she kind of freaked out and wouldn't leave my side. So on the way home I asked her if she wanted to go to school. She told me no, so I said we were going to take her backpack back and all the clothes back that we had bought her. She said ok mom, I won't freak out.

So here she is on her first day of preschool. She was so excited!!!

These were taken on our way to school. We turned on her favorite song, Teenage Dream by Katy Perry and jammed out the whole way there.

She was a little hesitant when we first go there. Kind of stuck to my leg for a minute but then walked right in and didn't even look back.
I went back 2 hours and 15 minutes later and she ran out to me and the first thing she said to me was, "Mom!! I didn't freak out!"
Here she is with her friend Eva!

Everyday I pick her up she tells me she LOVES school! It makes me so happy that she loves it so much! I drove away the first day and it kind of hit me that I have a child old enough to go to preschool! It's pretty crazy!
