Kate's 1st Birthday!

We made it through!! We actually did more than make it through. We had a great day. So much fun! Everything about the day was just great. It was so much fun to celebrate a very special little girl. I took over 100 pictures so I am having a hard time narrowing it down for the blog. I am going to have to break it up into several posts. This first one will be about the day and what we did.

Matt has started taking off the kids birthdays. I think that is so special. He isn't home very often during the week so it is a great treat for him to be home with them on their birthdays. Miss Kate woke up (wearing 1 of her 2 pairs of cupcake PJs) and went to check out her first present. We got her a green Pottery Barn Anywhere Chair for her room. She has always loved Ben's so now she has one for herself! Note her lovely bed hair! Daddy made his yummy homemade blueberry muffins! They were so good. Kate ate them up!
Kate then got to open her present from Ben. I had been asking him what he wanted to get Kate for several weeks. He came to me one day and told me he saw a commercial for the Weebles Treehouse and he thought she would like it. So that is what he got her. And boy did she like it!! I think they played together for hours with that thing! Laughing and having a great time!

Another funny Ben story from yesterday. I was telling him he needed to get dressed for the party. He runs to his closet and said "I don't have anything with a cupcake on it or anything that is pink." I must have really gone overboard with the theme!
We then took a trip to Southerland Station. It is a super fun toy store here in town. We let the kids just have fun and check out all the toys. You can spend hours in there playing! Kate of course had to try on the birthday hat! Her shirt says "I'm the Birthday Girl! Now Give Me Some Cake!"
She loved playing with the baby doll stuff. She is getting to be such a big girl. It cracked me up when she had the stroller and pointed up to one of the dolls (in a box) and then pointed down to the stroller. She wanted me to put the box in the stroller. I did and she went strolling around! So cute!
We asked Kate where she wanted to go to lunch and she said Chilis. Ok she didn't say Chilis but Ben said that he what she told him. So we enjoyed a fun lunch together as a family at Chilis. Kate even got a special birthday treat!
Then it was home to get ready for the party...
