Happy Birthday Megan Leigh 4 Years Old!

It has been a chant going around our house for nearly a month,

Happy Birthday Megan Leigh 4 Years Old!

ever since Chris wrote those words up on our whiteboard calendar. It wasn't possible to point at that date and say, "Hey, Megan, it's almost your birthday!" without the immediate, shouted so everyone can hear, response of

Happy Birthday Megan Leigh 4 Years Old!

Our celebrations included (p.s. I'm backdating this so it's dated on Megan's birthday, but the dinner date and shopping happened on Monday):

Presents--crown, baby, and stroller.

Note Ben throwing a tantrum in the background. He thought there was one present for Megan and one present for him. Oh, the injustice of other people's birthdays.

Skype birthday party with Grandpa Jeff, Grandma Karrie, and everyone else. Cake, presents, and grilled cheese sandwiches included.

Monday morning shopping with birthday money from Grandpa Craig and Grandma Janet, and Grandma and Grandpa Wampler. Her selections, purchased completely with her own money, were the outfit and the new shiny red shoes.

It is totally cool with me for my 4 year old to buy her own clothes.

And last but not least, the celebratory birthday dinner date with just Mom and Dad at Megan's chosen restaurant, McDonald's.

It was a good day/days. And she has barely taken the crown off since Sunday morning.

Happy Birthday, Megan Leigh!

All the way from this:
