Our littlest guy turned four last week.
And it was good.
Even though it was the third year – in a row – we celebrated his birthday with Cars.
This year, we did the Cars theme… but on vanilla cupcakes.
At Shepherd’s request.
Clearly, he was happy with how they turned out.
They weren’t all Cars themed, though.
I made a few for the girls. Some flowers. Some Christmas trees.
And maybe one for my sweet Poppy.
Shepherd has come so far.
He might still be small….
but he’s mighty.
Or, maybe I should say, he’s getting mighti-er by the day.
Shepherd is still in monthly PT to help with his gross-motor strength.
And weekly OT to help with his fine motor strength.
And he is making progress all the time.
We are all incredibly proud of all his accomplishments.
Big and small.
Happy Birthday, Shep-Dog.
Four sure looks good on you.
Y’all shared some incredible links last week. I am so grateful for Orphan Sunday. It’s a blessed reminder of all the ways we can, and should, be caring for orphans. I read a Snapshot last week that was so tender, and so sweet… about a little girl named Graceanna. A little girl that has inspired me because of her sacrificial giving to orphans. At the age of 7.
If you’d like to participate in Sunday Snapshot this week, just copy the code under the Snapshot button and paste it into the body of your Snapshot post where you’d like the button to be displayed.
Once you hit ‘publish’ it should show up just fine 🙂
Then add your link below.
Happy Sunday, y’all!
I hope to find the time to post tomorrow. But even if I don't, I just wanted to say Happy Birthday to Shepherd! What a darling little four year old! His grin is beyond precious!!!

Happy Birthday, Shepherd! You'll love being 4!
He is completely adorable and I was just thinking that you must celebrate a lot of birthdays. What month has the most? Do they each get their own day?
such a little sweetie!!! and i read your orphan sunday post…FABULOUS!!!!!!
Happy Birthday, Shep! Such a sweet boy. I always love your updates on your sweeties!
PS – I accidently linked up twice (Everybody loves a giveaway) to the 30 days of giveaways. I tried to delete on of them & didn't have any luck. Hope you can fix! Sorry!
Happy Birthday sweet Shepherd!!!! You and Lizzie are cute little DG buddies!
OK, your blog was linked somewhere else that I found… anyway, I had to stop and say hi for two reasons – 1) Shepherd is just a cutie. 2) Your family looks an awful lot like I want MY family to look… it's beautiful.
I'll be following from now on! 🙂
Shepherd is so adorable, I just love his expressions. Happy birthday sweet boy!!!!

You know I love Shepherd. He just has a little fighter's face 🙂 I can't believe your "big" boy is four (sniff, sniff) – and I can't blame him for going the "Cars" route again – hey, you gotta stick with what you like!
Happy 4th Birthday, Shep!
Happy Birthday Shep – we should probably get you and my youngest guy together – if it 'goes' it's for him – car's, trucks, tractors, bulldozers – whatever!
hugs around –
aus and co.
