A Little Cowgirl Turns Four...

 

This precious little girl celebrated her fourth birthday on Sunday...

Gabrielle, Rebekah and Sofia...

Sofia loves horses and just about anything to do with cowboys, and has been talking for months about riding... 
Thus, we thought taking her for a ride on a miniature horse would be the perfcet way to treat her for her birthday...

Of course all us girls wanted to go along to see our sweet little sister ride a horse for the first time, and I wanted pictures and videos of the special event!

 

I was quite surprised at how relaxed and comfortable Sofia was astride her horse...she had no fear and knew exactly what do as if it came naturally to her...  Her position was wonderful too...I think we may have another horse lover in the family...


Nancy and I had hoped to create a special horse themed cake for Sofia...we thought of a ''grassy'' field with horses and little fences dotted around, but sadly we couldn't find any mini plastic horses, and we weren't going to try a horse's head again after the last episode!


In the end, we decided to go with a simple rainbow cake which Beth and I baked and Nancy, Sindy and I decorated...

 

It turned out perfectly and Sofia was thrilled with the different colours.

 

I think little Sofia will always remember her fourth birthday...

In the evening we looked through all her baby pictures and videos and oh my!  You should have heard the giggling that came from our living room!  
 

Ah, such delightful memories and I hold them ever so dearly...  Sofia was the second baby I blogged about, and these past four years have gone by incredibly swiftly...Sofia is a wonderful addition to our family, and she is very loving towards all of us.

Seven sisters...oh, what JOY!
~ From oldest to youngest...Kelly-Anne {18}, Sindy {17}, Nancy {16}, Beth {11}, Gabrielle {8}, Rebekah {6} and Sofia {4} ~

I couldn't imagine a single day without her, and praise Jesus for giving us the privilege of welcoming her into our family four years ago.

Dearest little sister Sofia...oh, we love you so very much!  Happy birthday, little one!


P.S.  In case you are wondering, Sindy is a recent member to our little family...we feel so blessed to and humbled to have another sister to love, and I will be introducing you to her sometime this week...{{smiles}}

A blessed Tuesday to you, dearest readers!

Happy Birthday to Sofia! She is a sweetheart and she is so blessed to have 6 sisters that care about her. I'm sure she'll remember this birthday too.
My granddaughter will turn 4 in 2 weeks, so they are very close in age.
