Happy Birthday Kaitlyn!

I already talked a little about Kaitlyn's birthday, but I wanted to go into more details. We had my parents here from out of town to celebrate with us. In the morning, KK woke up to balloons all over the floor. Nate showed her how to have fun with them. We gave her a bucket and shovel for the beach. We packed a picnic and headed to the lake. She wore her new swimsuit from grandma. We had a great time sun-bathing, playing in the sand, and splashing around in the water. When we got home, KK went right down for a nap and I finished making the frosting for her cake. Grandma, Grandpa, and Nate went to order pizza. Kaitlyn loved the pizza! We tried to stick her princess hat on her but she hated it so we didn't get any great pics of that. After pizza, Nate wanted to open presents. Grandma got him some to make him feel better, but of course he had to help KK open hers. She was more interested in the wrapping paper then the gifts, but she still liked her turtle that lights up and sings and reads to her. It has a lot of buttons, and she's into pushing buttons these days (not mine, real buttons). Grandma got her a cabbage patch doll that laughs and she loves to stick her doll's ponytail in her hair and crawl around the house. It was fun to have a girl birthday! She also got a new outfit from Grandma, so we had to put her in it before cake. I made a pineapple cake and the frosting was crushed pineapple with whipped topping. She didn't like the frosting so much, but she sure gobbled up the cake. Nate decided the candle was "too scadee" because it was hot. It was a very fun, but simple day. We are so blessed to have her in our lives and I can't believe she's already 1! Time just flies. I wanted to include some pics of her throughout this year. See the previous post for actual birthday pics. Enjoy!
