I am currently re-scrapping my way through photos from when Daughter-Two was four.
(Her current scrapbook from that year is comprised of loose 8 x 8 layouts in a folder, and I want a 10x10 Shutterfly book to go with her more recent photobooks. Plus it's fun to relive as I scrap!)

There are no photos of that as she was no fan of balloons back so retreated into a quiet room while the rest of us ate cake. But she wouldn't stop saying "it's my birthday! it's my birthday!" so I confess that, in order not to have to have another birthday celebration later in the week, when we came home from Nana's we rustled up some cupcakes and candles and brought out her presents.
