    Daughter Q. turned four on New Year’s Eve, and I almost forgot to share my photos! Good thing I noticed them when I was (finally) uploading Christmas photos today.

    Thanks, girls!

    Jen: It helped that Si’s mom was here and she cleaned the house for the little party while I decorated the cupcakes. It was a team effort. 🙂

    Good job. My flowers never turn out that well. I particularly like the sunflower!
