anyhow, back to her birthday, her 7th birthday to be exact (am i really old enough to have a 7 year old? don't answer that!)... she was born on one of the coldest days of the year, january 25, 2004. it was something like -50 celsius with windchill?! yeah... cold. each year it is frigid on her birthday (obviously so b/c we almost live at the north pole) but that doesn't chill our hearts... it's the perfect time to celebrate a birthday. smack dab between christmas and spring. who doesn't need a bit of cheer at this time of year? we love it! so here are a few pictures from her birthday parties (yes, parties... one with strictly family, and the other, a friend party). this year's theme: BARBIE!!! :)
opening up presents the morning of her birthday from omi and opi (my mom and dad)
now, for big K's friend bday party she requested ice cream sundaes.
whaddya think? ok enough toppings?
mmmmmmm.... i had to keep little K's paws off these treats!
aw.... i had to take a picture of my house b/c of how clean it was. sigh...
oh yes... the k girls... dancing while they're waiting for guests to arrive!
oh, and posing with the balloons!
first we did a craft, made little necklaces (tutorial to come in a day or two).
