Scenes From A Birthday

On May 22nd, Mary Kate turned 13!

morning doughnuts

I cannot say enough good things about this girl.  She is a dream. She's easy going, sweet, and just downright nice. She's got a long list of credentials, too....pianist, flutist, violinist, silks/marching band, runner, and artist.

One of the traits I love most about her is her desire to experience life.  She always wants to learn new things.  She's willing to go on any adventure we cook up around here. She even enjoys car rides, walks, and going to church...all things the other kids say are b-o-r-i-n-g.

She brings a sense of calm whenever she's in the room, which I really appreciate.
She's my go-to girl if something needs to be displayed, wrapped, or decorated.  She's got an eye for beauty and details.

She's a gem and I can't wait to see what the future holds for her.  Something extra special I think.

Happy Birthday to our sweet Mary Kathleen.  We love you!
