Kate turned 6

I guess December was kinda "Kate month" at our house - with her show and her birthday, poor Trent didn't have a whole lot of monumental moments but he is such a concientious young man.  He sweetly asked to go to Target so that he could get Kate a pillow pet for her birthday.  Weeks before, we had walked through Target and she had mentioned that she would like one and he has remembered that - such a thoughtful boy.  He is going to make an amazing husband to his bride one day!  Kate's birthday is only 6 days before Christmas, so we try to really make them very separate celebrations.  This year my parents came to visit from California and were here to celebrate with her.
I love making the kids' birthday cakes but Kate really wanted the big mama jamma from Costco this year - and for $15, it's hard to beat not having to do all the leg work!  She was thrilled - and we had a ton of cake to take to a friend's house a few nights later.

Grandma and Grandpa had just as much fun making the gingerbread house as the kids!
The final reveal - matching PJs for Christmas for Kate and her doll along with the Pillow Pet from Trent.

Happy 6th Birthday to our sweet girl.
