Happy Birthday Kate!

Katelyn turned 5 on July 3rd! She is growing up so fast! She came into our family July 3, 2004 at 9:21am. She was 6 lbs 12 oz and 19 inches long. From the very begining she had an amazing spirit and I am so grateful for the amazing person she is! She is an amazing helper and a great listener (most of the time)! She is very smart and very kind! She smiles a lot and her laugh is infectious! She is amazing and we love her so much! We are so glad Heavenly Father sent her to us!
Here is a few pictures of Katelyn throughout the years. (Unfortunately we had a computer crash and lost quite a few pictures of Katelyn's first years....word to the wise...back up your pictures! Mike was able to recover some but we are still missing quite a few so this is what I could find missing a few birthday pictures.)

Kate's cake...yah I know I didn't make it but when life is busy sometimes you just have to make choices and making a cake wasn't the most important. She loved it though and it was really good!!!
We had a good day on her birthday. Daddy had the day off so it was fun he got to be with us all day. As soon as Kate woke up she was ready to open presents. We got dressed and opened presents. Then we went and got Slurpees and went to go on a tour of the cannery and see all the big machines they use to can stuff. They were running peas and we got to see how they can them. The best part was going through the candy drawer...Brandon let them pick whatever they wanted. The girls loved to see all the big machines work. Afterwards Katelyn picked Chinese for lunch. We then went to Walmart and picked out a cake. Headed home had pizza, got to ride bikes, and eat cake. Katelyn had a good day!
