On Saturday Kit celebrated her 7th Birthday!! It was her day so she could do whatever she wanted. She chose to spend the day at the beach! We packed up a lunch which included all of her favorite things and we headed down to the beach for an entire day of fun. Kit did her favorite things she swam in the lake, built sand castles, played beach restaurant, watched the sailboats and enjoyed every minute! We walked home, cleaned up and got ready to go to dinner, she asked if she could pick out all of our outfits since it was her birthday. We all agreed and she went through each of our closets and laid out what she picked on our beds:) We then went out for a nice Birthday dinner. We came home and had the cake that she picked out at the bakery all on her own. She had a yellow cake with fresh strawberries inside and covered in white butter cream frosting. It was delicious! After cake we opened her gifts and she was smiles from ear to ear. She was so cute as she opened each gift. She thanked us over and over again. When I tucked her in she told me it was her best Birthday ever!
Guess who is seven?
She loved her cake!
Time for presents!
She wanted to open Lucy's gifts first!
As you can see she LOVED them!
Every gift brought this smile to her face!
Happy Birthday Sweet Kit!!! I can't believe you are seven! Three years ago we were getting ready to come to China to meet you! We had just finalized everything right before your 4th Birthday. I was so sad that we couldn't be with you on your Birthday. It would be a few months until we would meet you. I managed to send you a Birthday cake and some special gifts that you still have today. I received pictures of you blowing out your candles and eating your cake. I was so happy that we could somehow be a little part of your 4th Birthday. I wondered what you were like, what your voice would sound like, what your personality was. I wondered what activities you enjoyed, what you liked to eat and what you liked to play. We couldn't wait for you to be part of our family.
Three years later and I could never, ever imagine life without you! You are as sweet as they come - and as stubborn as well! You have an infectious laugh, the sweetest smile, the biggest heart. You love to hula hoop and jump rope. Both of which you have mastered! You love to draw and to color. You are quite independent and enjoy your time alone. You could spend hours doing a craft project or coloring the perfect picture with much attention to detail. You love patterns. You love to dance and sing. You always tell me to turn up the radio in the car when you hear one of your favorite songs. I always catch you Irish Dancing somewhere around the house. You love soccer and tennis and have become a great swimmer! You are very determined. You work hard at everything you do. You love to daydream (and morning dream as well:), You have a favorite joke that you like to tell. You love to eat!!! You try everything and like most things. You're favorite thing to do is to snuggle. You could sit by me all day and hug me. If we didn't have anything else to do that would be fine by me. You have a come a very long way in a short time. You love your Lucy! You go along with every crazy thing she has you do. You never care if you go first, you let her make the rules and give out the orders all with a smile. You love your Dad and you are his little peanut! You love me as much as I love you if that's possible!! You always tell me that you are so happy to be part of our family. Each time you say it it brings a smile to my face and sometimes a little tear to my eye!
Happy, Happy Birthday sweet girl! We love you to the moon and back!!!!!!
