Last week, just as little seedlings in trays were brightening up the windows and it seemed like spring had come to stay, we got another big snow storm.
No amount of snow was going to dampen the joy of Ayla's fourth birthday. We celebrated simply with the family. Ayla got a homemade card from Sylvia and a felt giraffe that Camille designed and sewed for her.
a unicorn hat, and a prairie girl dress and pinafore to add to her beloved dress-up collection
Camille had a play rehearsal for Macbeth with the homeschool group, so we had a delicious birthday lunch at the natural foods co-op in town and browsed the local yarn store where Ayla declared every single skein in the store to be sooo beautiful.
She wanted a store-bought cake for the first time and decided that this s'mores cake with cherries and sprinkles was just the one.
Happy fourth birthday, Miss Ayla Fern!
