Kaitlin is 5! I just can't believe 5 years just came and went so fast! On Friday (her birthday), Kevin got donuts for everyone (Kaitlin's favorite!). He had to leave for work before she got up, but she was sooo excited to wake up to donuts. We even had donuts for lunch too (it was her birthday...we had to do something extra fun!). Later we went to the park. We brought the bubbles, and they all had so much fun! After that we went to McDonald's...yummy! (well, not really, but Kaitlin thinks it is). Finally, we came home and took baths and got ready for bed. Saturday was the big P-A-R-T-Y day! We had a rainbow party at Chuck-E-Cheese...oh..my..gosh! That place is crazy. When I took out my camera to take some pictures...it didn't work! I went in to spaz mode! But luckily, Junior, Meoshi's brother in law, had his new camera and let me borrow it. Thank you Junior! When I get the pictures from him, I'll put them on here. Apparently the cake I made was pretty darn cool! :) Even people from other tables were coming up to take a look at it...I love a good confidence booster! But anyways...Kaitlin had the best time and got so many great presents! Thank you to everyone who came out to celebrate Kaitlin's 5th birthday.

We have had such a wonderful year! We baked some cookies earlier in the week, and the girls had so much fun helping! On Thursday, New Year's Eve, we ate at The Harbour on Lake Ray Hubbard at some great mexican food restaurant (I just can't remember the name!) and we went to the movies and saw Bedtime Stories. It was so funny. Kaitlin loved it, Kiley laughed a little, and Ben had so much fun climbing up and down the stairs in the movie theatre! Saturday was so beautiful! It was in the 80's...gotta love this Texas weather. The kids and I went out and did some yard work for about 4 hours. Kevin stained the back porch and back driveway. It's beautiful! The girls and I got to go on a bike ride (Kiley finally got to try her new bike outside). Sunday was a relaxing day and it was so cold, the 40's! We went to Town East Mall and went to eat at McAllister's deli. Kaitlin's having a rainbow birthday party on Saturday, so Sunday night Kevin and I made a practice rainbow cake...we had to make sure we could actually make it, incase we really needed to pay a pro to do it. But I think we did a great job!! So, I am ready to make her cake for her party. Today we had freezing, so Kevin stayed home from work! I love when he gets to be here all day! Well, here are some pictures of what we've been up to:
