Even though her actual birthday is on the 31st, on Sunday this past weekend we celebrated my niece Kaitlyn's second birthday. She is so stinkin' cute (and ornery, too). I volunteered to get the cake and we ended up with a Dora cupcake-cake. She loved it! She also enjoyed eating it (along with Connor and Lexi, too). I think they all wore more frosting than they actually ate. Nola and Gary had the whole clan (both sides of the family) at their house for lunch. It was chaos, but really great to see everyone. They had the pool filled in the backyard, but only a few brave soles were willing to take the plunge in the frigid water. Kaity got some great gifts including Dora sheets for her "big girl bed" that she isn't yet sleeping in. Jill also made it into several people's arms that she hadn't yet been in. Jace, Don, and Papa Bud all held her for the first time this weekend! Don even had the honor of giving her a bottle. For those of you who made the trek to Haviland for this party, thank you so much. I know it means a lot to Brittany to have so many family members present to help celebrate Kaity's birthday! For more pictures, check out facebook or the kodak site.
