Katie Turned 12!!!

Katie turned 12 years old on July 5th.  She tried very hard to be our firecracker baby but was a few hours late.  Actually she was 1 full week late.  She had dark curly hair when she was born, the total opposite of her big sister.  Katie loves to celebrate and enjoys having a summer birthday so near the 4th of July.  This year she chose the evening meal, opened her presents, ate cake and ice cream and then we headed out to her new adventure- Cake Decorating at Hobby Lobby, this was part of her gift that she asked for.  So far she has had two lessons and she's doing a great job.  The cakes are very tasty so it is going to be easy to pack on the pounds for our family.  Katie is a pleasure to be around.  Giggly most all the time and quick to offer help, especially when helping with the little ones.  We are so proud of her, she is becoming a wonderful young lady.  This year she has moved from the children's choir to the Sunday morning adult choir.  She enjoys her time with Daddy on the way home from choir practice on Wednesday nights.  They do lots of singing and acting silly on the way home.  Or so I've heard.  We love you very much Katie (KK)!

I LOVE the first picture of Katie. She looks absolutely beautiful in that shot - - - not that she doesn't all the time, but that picture is an exceptional one of her. Happy Birthday to one of my favorite Sisters-in-Christ!
