Look Whoooo Is Having a Birthday

Katherine had her "family" birthday party tonight.  Granny made her a terrific owl outfit to match the owl party theme.
We ate some pizza and chatted and then munched our way through an owl cake.
I found this owl cake on-line and I must say, cupcake cakes are really easy and very cute!  And Katherine was quite pleased with it.
Months ago Katherine asked for a pair of cowgirl boots she'd seen in a store - turquoise ones with embroidery.  Rachel and I bought them a couple of weeks ago.  Rae, of course, can't keep a secret for more than about 30 seconds, so she told Kate.  Luckily, she has a hard time keeping all of the details straight.  She told Katherine that she was getting "pink scary snowboots".  Kate didn't quite believe her and asked about it, but I could honestly tell her Rachel was wrong.  So today Katherine was delighted to find turquoise, non-scary, cowgirl boots just for her. And they even match her owl dress.
Katherine's one gift request was a Perplexus, a sort of ball-shaped three-dimensional maze.  She asked both sets of grandparents for one and received two different kinds.  She was a happy kid.
And they were popular (and addictive) gifts.  Everyone ended up playing with them!
Stay tuned - there will be more owl festivities tomorrow!
