I’m such a bad blogger, I never posted pictures from Kaira’s birthday week! We had a bout of sickness run through the ranks that week, so her “party” (just a simple family thing) was spread out over several days. We’ve been well for weeks now, but somehow life has trotted on with happy busy productivity, and I never came back to post pictures!
Here’s my Kaira with her packages and her birthday bouquet! (We purchased the flowers prior to her photo shoot outing!)
Opening her present from Grandma and Grandpa:
A beautiful watch!
(Which she’s only taken off for baths since…)
A little doll from us
(And if you look closely you’ll see she’s already wearing the watch.)
Glasses for her doll, Kalissa
Then her main present from us: a new bike! A fancy one, more expensive than any I’ve owned! She was so proud to go to the bikeshop with her daddy to pick it out. It should last her many years–it supposedly fits from her height up to just an inch below mine, but I can ride it fine.
It was pitch black when they got home at night from buying it, but she had to ride it immediately. She couldn’t wait for morning.
Of course right after breakfast the next morning she was out riding again:
Then for her birthday meal she chose Lobster-dipped in drawn butter, acorn squash with butter and brown sugar and cinnamon, and corn-with butter.
Mmm! It was… buttery! I didn’t happen to photograph the food, we just ate it! It was delicious–rich, but delicious!
For desert she’d requested a doll tea-party. Each of her siblings chose a doll or stuffed animal to bring to the party!
(And I just edited my sidebar to reflect that she is now 9!)
