Happy 5th Birthday Kasen!

August 10, 2010

Wow, what a GREAT day!!  Kasen woke up early and whispered in my ear, “Mommy, wake up.  It’s my birthday!” :) <3  She was so excited.  Brad and I hurriedly got out the video camera and led her to her first present, a makeup musical vanity table.  She loved it!  Holden gave her a play makeup kit that she adores.  Yes, he picked it out himself. LOL  I held up two and he picked. ;)  She has been asking for a makeup table where she can put ALL of her makeup on, so it was definitely a hit.

We had a fun day of watching movies and having a picnic in bed while Holden napped.  At 5:00 p.m. we headed over to Brad’s parents house for Kasen’s family birthday party.  Heather had the table set beautifully for a princess.  We had a wonderful meal and fabulous cake – what more could anyone ask for?!  Oh yeah, and Kasen opened her presents before dinner.  You know, she hasn’t even been five for 24 hours . . . . we can’t expect her to have the patience of a saint just yet. :D  She loved all of her gifts and I’m always so proud of her for being so incredibly grateful.  She gave many, many hugs and many thank yous throughout the day – sweet. :)

I do have pictures, but I’ve lost my card reader, and right now I’m trying to hook up my camera to the computer, but it’s just not working.  Sooooo, pics to come later.

Happy Birthday to our adorable, exuberant, wonderful, charming princess.  You make everyday joyful and we can’t imagine life without you.  We can hardly imagine it before you.  You have brought more happiness and love into our lives and we are the ones who are truly grateful.  You are and will always be our light after the storm, our rainbow baby, our sweetheart. We love you to the moon and back.

Happy 5th Birthday Kasen!!!!!!!!! :D
