Sadie celebrated her 4th birthday today. She received many nice gifts, blow out the candles on her cake, and, was able to share the excitement with family. In addition to her immediate family, the noon luncheon was enjoyed by 2 sets of Grandparents and 1 pair of Great Grandparents. John grilled hamburgers to go along with corn-on-the-cob, salad, deviled eggs, pickles, fruit and a delicious chocolate birthday cake. She felt very entitled to wear her "crown" all day. One of her gifts was a competitive ball game of tossing colored plastic balls into pockets. The balls were just the size that Jack enjoys throwing so he probably enjoyed the game more than Sadie. I'm sure the day will come when they will enjoy playing the game on a competitive basis but at this time, Jack just puts the balls in the pockets. Sadie is very protective of Jack, and they really get along very well with each other.
