The big 4

Claire and Charlotte were VERY excited to turn 4 yesterday.  "Look how big I am now!" Charlotte exclaimed when she came downstairs.  They celebrated at daycare with cupcakes, picked big sister up from school, and opened a large pile of wonderful presents: for Claire, a tool to help her read, tons of books, some costumes, a baby elephant, and other great stuff; for Charlotte, a tool belt "like Claire's", a Hot Wheels car launcher (that serves no apparent purpose but makes her very happy), bunches of books, and a near-life-size zebra.

Today, the whole family was together for Good Friday, and the festivities continued with a trip to the Greensboro Children's Museum, where Claire enjoyed the "real, live fire truck" and Charlotte reveled in the police car and mail truck.  (We have never observed a happier postal worker).  Tomorrow we'll have another birthday party, this time with the "street people".  It was hard to get to sleep tonight...

In other news, Louise was very proud to show off the chicken dance she learned at school:
