kaycee turns 5!

i can hardly believe i have a 6 year old, and now kaycee turned 5 today...

oh, the fun to think back 5 years ago, today. we were at a family dinner all night, i came home at 9:30 pm, and started having contractions...just like that. i told matt to call nicole, a labor and delivery nurse friend, who was willing to come to the birth center with us, as matt broke his back when i was 8 months pregnant (a whole nother story of God's provision for us)...he told her to bring a movie along, UNTIL i intercepted the phone, and she decided we better just go... :) at 11:55 pm little kaycee agnes introduced herself...had her in the water...which is the ALL-STAR method of having a baby, ANYDAY...HANDS DOWN. :)

kaycee...you are a true princess of the King...never forget that. you are beautiful in every way. your soft spoken words, your smiles at nothing at all, and your ability to peace make are a joy to watch come to fruition. i am thankful God chose me to be your very mommy, and just pray that i don't mess up the opportunity. thank you for being a great sister. i love watching you interact with kaden, campbell, and calli. you are such a great help to me. i love seeing your little eyes twinkle and your sweet little cheek kisses to me each night. i long to see how you dance through life...don't make it too hard on me, okay? :) i love you. mommy.

anyway...some fun pics from our day of turning 5...

had to call matt in "special" to sit in on opening the first of her presents this morning...i don't think he minded warming up, and reading kaycee her birthday card...

practicing on her new walkie talkie...

had to "sneak" one of campbell in...she didn't understand why she didn't get any presents...

a present from the N. Carolina cousins...yay...we've already colored on those fuzzyposters...they are awesome!

yep...i made the purse cake, and coin purse to go with it. i thought it totally rocked...and it was easy. yay.

matt's mom, Judy, and my mom, Debbie, with our kids.

matt's brother mark, with his girlfriend, jamie, and her daughter rhiannon.
