Chris' truck decided to go kaput that morning on his way to work-as our vehicles are known to do from time to time, so the day didn't go quite as planned. He ended up taking the van to work while my friend MB chauffered me around all day picking up the cake and various other errands I needed to run.
They had 2 indoor "jumpers," air hockey, foosball, karaoke, Pac Man, other arcade games, toys, etc. We had hot dogs, chips, drinks, ice cream & cake. One time, my mom said Katie came up to her and threw her arms around her and said, "I having fun!" What more could I ask for?!?!
She opened her gifts from us and other family that morning. Gracie made the sweetest card for her. It's a fuzzy picture, but it says, "Dear Katie, You're the best. I'm glad you're going to be three. I love you very much. Happy Birthday. Love, Gracie."
You are such a joy to my life. You make me laugh daily and also frustrate me from time to time, but I'm so glad God made you the way He did. I love that you have such "spirit!" I love that you will carry around your pink bear or doll but that you also love Spiderman! I love how you squeal when Daddy comes home from work. I love how much you adore your Sissy and how you enjoy going to get her from school. I love how you say, "hold you" and hold up your arms for me to pick up.
Your best friends right now are Dillon (sounds more like Dillion when you say it), Bryson & Tatum. You have quite the crush on Dillon but Bryson too so who knows which one you'll choose! You & Tatum are both so sweet there needs to be 1 for each of you so I guess the 2 of you will have to each choose 1. I love how when I take you to "school" on Wednesdays, you almost always say, "Dillon be there," "Bryson be there." I love that those friends are not only in Bible Class with you but also at Mother's Day Out with you.
You love your grandparents and have fun playing with them. I love watching you talk and just be you and watching them be amazed at all you say & do. You are definitely a grandfather's girl. If you have a choice between Grammer or Pappy, you will almost always choose Pappy-which is okay because Gracie tends to do the opposite. You both love them both but you definitely lean towards being with one over the other.
I love how you throw your arms up in the air and say, "Touchdown! Romo!" It makes your daddy so happy! I love how you sing your "Thank you God" prayer. It is so sweet! I love how you like to point out things that God made. Even though I didn't think I would like it, I kind of like how you've started calling me, "Mama" lately instead of "Mommy." It sounds so sweet the way you say it.
I love you, Katie Boo Brooklyn and I'm so glad God picked me to be your Mommy! You're my favorite 3 year old!!!!!!!!!!
