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!
