We celebrated Billy Gotcha Day (the day Billy came home from Korea to be part of our forever family) the day we got back from vacation with our good friends Rod, Peggy, Josh and Jake. It was serendipitious since Josh and Billy are the reason we are friends, they met in skateboard camp 2 years ago. Part of Gotcha Day is getting to pick dessert, in typical Billy fashion - brownies! It was a low key day but we spent it being so grateful to Billys biological and foster family in Korea. He is SUCH a blessing and we love him to pieces!!
On to the Main Event - Kay's 11th Birthday !!
As you know, turning 11 is BIG DEAL. We covered the friend festivities in an earlier blog so this was the actual day family celebration. She spent the day swimming with friends and then requested fondue and ice cream pizza for dessert. AND...she wanted to open a LOT of presents. What did she get?! A new tackle box, tons of lures/bait and 2 new outfits. Sounds exactly like what every 11 yr old girl would dream of for a birthday. She loved it and Uncle Carl would have been way jealous. Shes been arranging and rearranging her tackle box ever since...
Hording her gifts
A "martini" toast
The ice cream pizza
At dinner we went around the table and said all the things we love about Kay - she's creative, funny, independent, a great cook, generous, silly and a great gymnast. Again, we are so indebted to her biological and foster families for their unbelievable gift to us. She is amazing!
We found the below horoscope for people with 7/10 birthdays. Kay read it and said - Wow, that's totally me!!!
:) We love you Kay!
