Happy 13th birthday Kay!!

Kay - happy happy you:)

You are funny, generous, silly, fun, curious, creative, bold and energetic.  You can also be stubborn, independent and cranky.  We LOVE you for all these traits.

Your birthday was epic and "the best birthday ever" according to you.  We had a scavenger hunt for your presents (mom made word riddles, puzzles, etc to send you to the next location where your next present was hid) we watched the Olympic gymnastic trials and you amazed us with how much you know about gymnastics and the sport itself and we had a dinner, per your request, of buttermilk fried chicken, homemade mac & cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy and corn on the grill with mexican seasonings, lime and creme fraiche, followed by strawberry shortcake.  It was so much fun to just be with you, doing things you love and learning what you know.

We are so blessed to have you in our lives. a HUGE thank you to your birth family and foster family for giving you the gift of live and love and letting you be a part of our forever family. You are the present to us and the world on your birthday and everyday.  XXOO LOVE!! Mom and Dad.
