happy birthday katie!

Little Sug is 4!! How is this possible? Kindergarten in another year?! What? Now I'm one of those old people saying 'Where did the time go? It just goes by so fast.' Katie made a paper chain to count down the days to the big event. 'Now how many sleeps until my birthday?' Her excitement was contagious. Now she's ready to make a chain and start counting down to Alex's birthday.

We went to the Children's Museum in Denver for the festivities. Some of the hits were the fire engine to explore, a 'nature area' with tunnels for worms and a tree to climb around on, and a 'little kid exploration area.' The boys spent a fair amount of time playing with the trains, while Katie painted. Hummmm . . . and how is that different than being at home?

Katie chose 'berry rainbow' for her birthday cake - three layers of jello poke cake with pudding and whipped cream in between. Pink was the big hit of the birthday - now we have TWO pink tutus to dance around in. Katie chose to have her party at Oma's house, and had a grand time calling all of the shots with 'Well, since it's my birthday, I choose . . . ' She's such a treat to have around, and is more fun every day.
