Party Time! Kate is 1!

Well, the Birthday Fairy found our house once again! Baby Kate turned one on November 18, (we celebrated yesterday the 19th because Daddy was off enjoying the Cougars big win on her actual birthday. I didn't mind much though, it was actually nice to have one more day in between having to blow up balloons again.) Its hard to believe that it has already been a year since I had her. She has grown up in the blink of an eye!
She loved opening her presents, but her siblings enjoyed it almost more. I had to fight them off the entire time. ( "We're just helping her mom!" "Leave her alone! Back-off! Sit down! Let her do it by herself!") At first she would get so mad at us when we would take away one opened gift and hand her another unopened one, but she figured out that there was something good inside all the wrapping by the end. She got a few little toys, some cute clothes, and a little purse (Vera Bradley from Grandma, stuffed with fruit snacks. She loved unpacking the purse.) She scored!
