We started off the day with pancakes and pumpkin cookies (at her request).
Actually, she opened her presents before breakfast so that Daddy could watch. Anika had just woken her up and she was a little out of it! Anika was ever so helpful. She picked up Keslie's hand and guided her along. =)
Then we went to the Westmoor Park to see the animals and go for a walk. AND get eaten alive by mosquitoes!!
We ate with our friends at Chuck E. Cheese's! The girls had a ball and won 112 tickets and they both chose a squishy bug and temporary tatoos. =)
Being a mom is the most amazing experience of my life. To love someone else so completely is a feeling that is REALLY hard to explain. My girls are a part of me. Watching them grow up is so fun but it kind of gives me a heart pang. It's a bittersweet feeling. I want them to stay little but love each new stage so much! Keslie is an angel. She's sweet (with just enough sass). She's hilarious. She's cheesy as can be. She has the cutest voice imaginable and says the funniest things. She has the most kissable cheeks and is so fun to snuggle with (except for that crazy hair!! It can be bothersome when it tickles my nose and I'm trying to sleep!). She LOVES Anika! We just love her so much and wouldn't be complete without her!! I'm so grateful to be her mom and I'm looking forward to the fun we're going to have with her over the next year!!
Show some love people! Leave a comment with your favorite Keslie memory or just a Happy Birthday!! I'll read them all to her and she'll love it!!
