Kait's 7th Birthday

Kaitlyn was due October 4th 2003 but she surprised us by coming a little early on my birthday. It had never crossed my mind that she could be born on my birthday but in the hospital right after her birth it felt like she chose to come on the 27th, Mom's birthday, because we would be such good friends. I love her sooo much. She is smart, funny, obedient, (well most of the time), and beautiful. Some of the things that I love about her: when she watches movies she laughs so hard that all in the room have to laugh too, she is very conscientious of doing well and being good, she is social and always wants to be playing with someone but can curl up and read a book too, she loves to learn and grasps concepts quickly, and she is sensitive to my moods, (that can be really good and really bad but I love her for it), she is a wonderful daughter and a great big sister.

Here are a few pictures from her party. We have tried to start a tradition of making a birthday cake with the birthday child. It has been fun!

Pinatas are another tradition.

Family picture attempts

Clearly nobody wanted to take pictures, but Mom is determined to have a decent family picture.

Not happening. And Dad can't squat in this position any longer.

Ok, now the photographer is just snapping pictures hoping for a miracle.

Yeah, this is Mom's favorite picture so far but Dad and the photographer are done.

So Mom decides to take a few without parents. The pictures are much cuter without us anyway.

Mom begs everyone to try one more time. Dad takes action!

Presto! A some what decent picture.

(Thank you MaryAnn for jumping around acting silly and Ben for taking the pictures.)

I love KSL

We got this play set off of KSL for $300.00! I love it when a bunch of kids are over and playing.
