Katelyn's 8th Birthday

What a crazy birthday for Katelyn!

We started the day out with two soccer games over at the Bluff Street park. The kids had a blast and have really enjoyed learning the sport! Their season ends this week. Next swimming lessons!

We decided to make Katelyn's 8th birthday very special for her. We threw a small friend birthday party with her best girlfriends. The girls arrived at our house where we played games, opened presents and ate homemade pizza for lunch. We then headed over to the Paul Mitchell hair school for some pampering for the girls. They had their nails painted and hair styled in an up do. They had an absolute blast! We finished off with some cake and ice cream.

I made Katelyn a Hannah Montana guitar cake.
It was fun to make and Katelyn really liked how it turned out.

Later the same day we had family come over to help us celebrate more and eat cake! Hailey and Braxton were able to join in the festivities, their parents were in Florida for a couple days. Katelyn got more gifts and played in the back with all the kids. She was very spoiled with gifts and entertainment this year. A perfect day for a terrific girl! Look at that loot!

Happy 8th Birthday baby girl!
Zack and I have loved learning and growing as parents. Katelyn and the boys teaches us new things everyday. Katelyn is a good student who loves learning. Her teachers talk about the wonderful example she is to those around her. Katelyn is very creative, enjoys artsy things and reading. She is a good girl! She is such a great helper and loves taking care of her little brothers. She has grown up so fast! Being 8 now, she is thrilled to be getting baptized in two weeks at the stake baptisms for April! This is quite the milestone for her, we are so grateful that she is in our lives and made such a good decision.

We all love you Katelyn!
