the week started with a weekend visit from pappy & gammie, and aunt rachael even came too!
Kate chose to celebrate this year by having cake and ice cream with her closest friends (which she picked over a visit to the pumpkin patch, as is the tradition). so on tuesday, her friends joined us for some cake and ice cream, and Hello Kitty overdose. :)
after all the birthday celebration was over, we had quite a "hangover". it took us several days to come down from the birthday mountain, but now she's settled into being 5 quite well. :)
this was Kate this morning, as we sent her brother off on the bus.
she's unique :) and we love every part of her
