Tonight we celebrated Kate's 8th birthday! Her actual birthday is tomorrow, but she has Girl Scouts so we partied tonight instead. First things first -- PRESENTS. Kate went straight for the biggest one. It was BIG.
A rat cage!!! Kate has been begging for a pet of her own, and the winner is rats! She gets to pick two rats out tomorrow on her actual birthday.
Also, her very own savings account. She's clutching her little bank book in this photo. Pretty big deal!
Yia Yia Grace got her binoculars. Let the snooping begin!
Uncle Ben took them for a test run.
Kate chose spaghetti and meatballs for her birthday dinner. YUM!!!!
After dinner, Kate and Felix sat and stared forlornly at the pile of presents.
Then it was time for cake!
Make a wish!
Texas Sheet Cake. Because we just can't get enough! Happy birthday, Lil' Kate!
