Quick 5

Lee likes birthdays because during birthday week it's like Dessertpalooza around here.

1.  On Sunday we celebrated Joya's birthday with the cousins and grandparents (and Aunt Jamie.)  Joya had tons of fun opening her presents and sharing them with her cousins.  Her little mind was blown by all the tulle and glitter that she received.  Her presents all suited her to a T. 
 2.  Joya, of her own free will and with no prompting from anyone, chose birthday pie instead of birthday cake this year.  I have no idea where she came up with that idea, but it is one that we all enjoyed immensely.  I made a cherry pie and a chocolate brownie pudding pie, and yes, she had a piece of both at her party.

3.  On Monday we went to Red Robin for Joya's free birthday meal.  Right after we ordered she asked where the cheerleaders were.  I double checked with the server and then told her they'd come later.  She was so looking forward to the birthday chant.  So next time you hear that obnoxious song at a restaurant just pretend it's for a four year old who is soaking it up.

4.  Joya has worn at least three different dress up dresses each day since her party.  But she's not the only one who has caught on to Dress Up Fever.  Bria is starting the Anything Sisters Do I Must Do Too phase, and Joya is happy to dress her up like a little doll.
 5.  So ends a busy birthday week.  My little Joya is now a 4-year-old.

Catch ya on the flip side!
