Pictures as promised

Katie's new bike.

Island girl Katie
My little pre-teen... I had to have them do one shot zoomed in on the feet. Gotta love kids' feet.
Her close up.

Now, I know that you guys are going to be shocked by this, but the woman taking her picture laughed at her because when she said "Ready?" once to Katie while she wasn't really paying attention, Katie immediately got on point. It was hysterical - like she was at a real model photo shoot.

Life with a FIVE year old!!!!

Today is Katie's birthday! Actually she turns 5 well after she will be asleep tonight, butI'm not going to bother her with the details. I'm sure that I'll have more than one post about her birthday since we started celebrating yesterday and her actual party isn't until next Sunday. We just couldn't get our act together - and really still haven't since we're doing a guest list more by word of mouth than sending invitations! So if you are reading this, you're invited! LOL

Yesterday we went to get her picture taken and buy her big birthday present. This morning when JC and I got up we realized she had already started celebrating with the cats.

I seem to be having trouble posting pics this morning, so I'll try again later.
But in the meantime....
Happy Birthday Make A Wish Birthday Gifts

At work with Katie

Yesterday Katie went to work with me. We are just now recovering. We moved my office on Friday, so this was a new area for her to explore. Luckily we had no one from outside the office coming in yesterday because she had taken over. Amidst the boxes I set up my wipe board for her and let her go with the markers. She did quite a bit of artwork complete with her name. I should take the camera tomorrow and take a picture of it.

She also had brought her barbies - naked of course, stuffed animals and a dinosaur. She set them up around the conference room table but left one seat for herself and one for - my boss. She then convinced him to have a meeting. Apparently had a lot to tell him about her cousin Patrick and how he was killing off the pets. I personally think Patrick is getting a bad rap, it was one pet and I don't know that Patrick had anything to do with it, but I'm investigating.

She also made my bosses office the place where the "bad" animals had to go for a time out. Luckily my boss is great with kids and his daughter is on vacation with his wife so he needed a kid fix. I guess it could have been worse. She could have started talking about sleeping attire. Ahem.

Nana gets busted!

Finally someone else is getting in trouble!

Katie was at Mom & Dad's yesterday and was taking a walk with Nana. She had been trying to get Nana to say hi to everyone they saw, but when Nana stopped to talk to one of the neighbors Katie went running back to the house to tell Papa "Nana is talking to strangers, you'd better come!" Papa walked around the house with her and told her that it was okay because Nana knew the person. When Nana told Katie that she knew the person (Nana had not known why Katie had run off) Katie told her, "Well you didn't introduce me, how was I supposed to know?"

I have repeated what I have been told, if there are any errors I'm sure that someone - Dad - could clear them up.

That's my kid - she tattles on everyone! But at least I know she has the stranger concept down.

Okay, on to something more fun...for me...

Fun at the zoo. Before my sweet little 4 year old turned into a 13 year old and started hating me. How does that happen this young?

She's going to be 5 at the end of this month. Does that mean I have to change my blog title?

By the way, that's daddy in the tree in case you didn't notice him.

Let's play how have your kids embarrassed you!

For those of you who don't have kids, you can sit back and laugh at everyone else.

Katie spent the night at my Mom & Dad's this weekend. Mom and Dad were taking her upstairs to bed and Katie turned to them and said "I'll have you know your daughter sleeps naked."

Someone please pipe in with something worse. Please? Embarrassed Ugh.
