Five years!

Pin It Our sweet, spunky, God-lovin' Katie-Bug turns FIVE today!

Five years ago today, our second little angel came into our lives. This little one is our "live wire." She is a ball full of energy, has her own look and her own way. Quiet possibly the best way to describe our Kate is sincere: whether she is happy, sad, angry, excited, she can not hide her emotions and feels them to the max!

In Kate's own words:

My favorite color
On TV, I like to watch...Wild Kratts
My favorite book is...My Princess Book
My favorite movie is...the movie theater Cinderella (Disney's new live-action movie)
I like to eat...tootsie rolls
I feel happy when...Elena kisses me
I feel sad when...I fall off my bike on the road
I like to...go to the movies
I don't like chocolate cheesecake (really?!?!)
I think Daddy is...a fun daddy
I think Mommy is...a sweetheart
I think Elena is...the sweetest sister I ever had
I think Wren is...the funniest baby, I mean toddler
I think Sanford (our dog) is...the funnest doggie I ever had
I think Gracie (our cat) is...a laying cat
I like to play with...Elena
My favorite toy playhouse
I am really good Katie-bug hugs
I get excited...when we go to the movie theater
I like to go to...Great Wolf Lodge
My best friend is...Elena
I love...Elena

I am forever amazed that the Lord would allow me to be a mom to this little one! What a joy it is to have her in our lives. My prayer for you, sweet Kate is the same today as it always is:

What an awesome privilege God has given me to be your Mommy.

I pray that you forever grow in His Grace.

I pray that you will grow to Love Him more each day

I pray that you will grow to show His love to others

I pray that you will have all the joys your heart desires

I pray that I will always be able to guide you along the right path

I pray that you will always know how very much you are loved

I pray that no one ever quenches your zeal for life

I pray that your enthusiasm is always used for God's glory

I pray for His wisdom in raising you to be all that God designed you to be.

You are your Mommy's joy, precious Kate!
I love you with all of my heart. Happy Birthday to my sweet girl.
