We had Katie's birthday party this past Saturday. We invited family and friends to celebrate the special day.
One of the neat things about having a girl is that there are so many more birthday themes to choose from. The theme we chose was a princess one. I got princess favors, decorations and party plates. We even had a princess banner. Katie wore a pink dress with matching pink shoes. The cake that I made was the princess crown.
Katie was much more into her birthday this year. We have been talking about how old she is going to be. If you ask her, she will tell you that she is going to be 2. However, when it came time to blow out the candle, she really didn't know what to do. So Michael stepped in and blew it out for her. She did eat the majority of her cake and it was not nearly as messy as her first birthday.
After playing outside for a bit, we opened presents. I had a lot of help from several of the kids who were attending the party, as well as Michael. Katie wasn't too interested in opening her gifts but enjoyed playing with what she got.
We had a really nice time and were thankful to have so many people to celebrate with us. Here are a few pictures from the party. Unfortunately we didn't get a shot with the whole family but maybe we can try again on her birthday.
