Wow! Can't believe that Katey is 8! She's been counting it down for so long (since 9/3/10 practically!) and it finally arrived! She was SO excited that she woke me up at 3:30am.....are ya kidding me? I told her "no way Jose," but after that, neither of us really went back to a good sleep. Anyway, she came back at 5:30 and then finally at 5:59 I threw in the towel and got up. Needless to say, the rest of the day was fueled by adrenaline. She loved all of her gifts and had an awesome day at school being the birthday girl. We then headed to Gam's for the family party where more fun and more fun gifts were in store for her. I have to say that I was very excited about how the cake turned out. I was a little apprehensive until it all got put together and the end result was more than I had hoped. Happy to say, it tasted great too! The celebration continued into Saturday when we took Katey to The Melting Pot for dinner. She loved it! Amazed at how the chocolate fondue has evolved over the years......so many options! We chose the white/dark combo called "Ying and Yang"......it was beautiful, and tasty! Greg gave her the 2nd Harry Potter book and a Hedgewick look-a-like which totally thrilled her. You'd think that would be enough? Tune in next weekend to catch "Part Deux" of the BD celebration! (I'm tired already!) HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATEY!
