Happy Birthday Kate

Well, this was Kate's BEST birthday ever! She had the best time today and really enjoyed herself!

It started last night with Mattie, our adopted student from church, coming over to help decorate our house. She did a great job with inspiration and streamers!

Today, the bad weather held off and it was beautiful! Unfortunately, Kate fell on the driveway just before the party, and hurt her knees. But, she did OK. She was quite pitiful walking around like a gimp - but I think it was because of the bandaid!

She got some Care Bears and DVDs, a Doodle Pro, some Crayola Wonder Color Markers and books, a cooking set, a camera and some shoes for Oscar (her stuffed dog).

Afterwards, the kids played, and of course, I was outside taking lots of pictures! I got some really good ones, I thought. All in all it was a wonderful day, and we are so glad the everyone came!

Kate looks so old. Man they grow up so fast. She looks great in her birthday clothes. I am so glad she had a good time.

What great pictures. So glad Miss Kate had a good birthday party. Too bad about those skinned knees but I know she is probably not even feeling them today. Good grief, did you see the picture of Kyle after he went face first into the concrete off his skateboard. That one has been chalked up to "Pappi's fault" and he still has a little scar. Battle wounds! Checked on all of you with G'mama this morning.....heard about the bad storm up that way. Glad to know all are OK. xoxo

I just have to tell you this...Kevin was looking at your blog and saw the pics of Kate and her bday party. His first comment was, wow she is so clean and pretty. At our boys bday parties they get so gross and dirty all the pics of them show them with cake, dirt, paint, and everything else on them. Just thought his comment was funny!

Well, it did help that she skint her knees just before the party started. She walked like a 90yo woman the rest of the party (until she forgot that she did hurt herself).
