Monday, April 18th

Happy day to our special little girl Brenna - we love you so dearly!!! Brenna helped with the cake decorating :-) We decided a rainbow would be a great decoration and I think it turned out awesome (way better than the frosting job that I did on the cake, oh, well!).

Our cake has 4 layers and is a checkerboard - isn't it pretty???
Brenna being cheesy...
Hello All!!!

Hope all is well out there. Things are good here - just finished celebrating Brenna's gotcha "day" weekend :-) I can't describe how special and lucky we are to have Brenna in our lives every day - you are one special little girl and we love you!!!!

Brenna and I stayed busy today doing some fun stuff too - we painted Easter eggs this morning and then went out to the scrapbooking store. We found lots of neat stuff at the scrapbooking store, and we had fun cutting out some shapes (mainly stars - that is what Brenna wanted today). This afternoon, we tried out a recipe for homemade marshmallows - I hope they set up well overnight. Last time I tried to make the marshmallows was in Germany and it was a failure, so I'm hopeful that this time we will be able to cut out some cute shapes :-)

So, that is about all - we had a very good family weekend - nice and relaxing for everyone :-) I wish the weather was nicer, but I'm sure we will have some nice days soon (please - Brenna can't wait to wear her flip flops :-)

Take Care!

sounds like a fun way to celebrate that beautiful girl! I love the cake, wish I could have been there to share some of that! I thought the rainbow was a great idea, since we've been having all this rain. It's hard to believe that it's been 4 years since you brought Brenna home! She's such an awesome little girl! Can't wait to see you again soon!
