Kate turned 2 on Thursday. I really cannot believe I have a 2 year old. We had such a fun day!! She loved every second of it. She woke up to a birthday rope (it's a tradition in my family to have a rope go all through out the house with fun little toys and stuff on it) then she had pancakes with bacon and orange juice. It was like Christmas at our house with the amount of stuff she got. I don't feel too bad about it though because she has no age appropriate toys at all and most all day she just wants to watch tv. Well the day of her birthday she had so much fun stuff to play with she didn't ask to watch a "show" (as she calls it) once! That is a big deal if you know how much Kate loves movies and tv. We then took her to her favorite restaurant for lunch, McDonalds. She had a blast playing there. In the afternoon we took her to see Despicable Me. It was a really cute movie except Kate and I didn't get to see the last half because she thought it was more fun to play with the arcade games in the lobby then watch the movie but Phil said the last half was really good. I don't think we will be taking her to see another movie for a while. That night she opened some more presents and we had yummy cake. It was a day all about Kate and we loved every minute of it. Kate is such a cute and fun girl. We love having her here and can't wait to see what she will show us this year. Happy Birthday Kate!
