Cohen's Art Birthday Party

This weekend was the big birthday celebration for Cohen!  I know everyone says this about their own child but I CANNOT believe my first baby girl is 4!  Time flies so very fast, I feel like I just had her.  Cohen is such a joy to me and I have loved every minute of the last 4 years.  She has taught me so much about life and what is truly important.  I never knew 1 person could bring everything into perspective but she certainly has.  I love her more than I could have ever imagined loving someone and now Kate too.  To celebrate the big 4, Cohen had an art party.  This was our first birthday party away from home and it was so nice!  We had her party at the Franklin Co. Recreation Dept. and I think everything went really well.  We counted about 72 people so for that many people we had a great time and it wasn't too crazy :)
We had face painting, finger nail painting and I bought canvases so each child could paint their own picture.  I love to watch their creativity run wild!  Cohen really had a fun time and that's what matters most.  I love birthday parties so I always enjoy planning it out.  We appreciate all our friends and family that came out and celebrated with us.  You truly helped make her birthday special and she has told me quite a few times that she has had the "best birthday ever."  Here are some pictures from the party...
