Party at Roswell Area Park

On Saturday, September 13, Kate invited a few of her friends to Roswell Area Park for a belated birthday party. The kids enjoyed the swings and slides as well as the pizza and cupcakes. Yum! After the party ended, Joey and I carried all the food and party supplies up the hill to load our car. We made the mistake of trying to carry everything in one trip, however Kate stumbled going up the hill solo which only produced a domino effect - I dropped the cookie sheet full of cupcakes which splattered all over the stairs and sidewalk and I also broke a couple of of my small cereal bowls. :( Joey who often refers to me as "Grace" lost control of the cooler in an effort to break mine and Kate's fall. But when it was all said and done, it was still a great party! :)

The Gang's All Here - Melody, Jack, Kate and Davis. We tried hard to get all four of them to look at the camera but it never happend.

Kate loved her cupcake...

... but not as much as Melody!

Kate opening her presents from Jack & Melody and Davis. Kate is giving Jack the low down on Ariel, The Little Mermaid. I'm sure he didn't know that Ariel is not only a mermaid, but she's a princess too!

Kate's Birthday Cake - Ariel was the theme! :)

On Sunday, August 31, 2008, Kate turned two-years-old. We celebrated her birthday in Auburn, AL at Aunt Sue & Uncle Jerry's house. The theme for the party was Ariel the Little Mermaid, and all of our family did a great job finding special "Ariel-themed" presents for Kate.

Kate & Aubie

Kate posed with Aubie for a few pictures before the Auburn vs. LA Monroe game on Saturday, August 30. Kate enjoyed getting to see the band, cheerleaders, Tiger Paws, and Majorettes before the start of the Spirit Parade. She was so excited when she got to hold an official cheerleader pom pom and did her best War Eagle cheer! Mom and Dad can't wait to see her on the field cheering on the Auburn Tigers.

Dinner at Cinderella's Castle

On Monday night of our Disney trip, our family dined at Cinderella's Royal Table, which is located inside Cinderella's Castle at the Magic Kingdom. We were entertained by Cinderella's friends and the Fairy Godmother who made a special appearance and treated us to a song. It was a dream come true!

Kate Meets Ariel

The highlight of our trip at the Magic Kingdom was taking Kate to meet Ariel at her grotto. If you haven't heard, Kate is a BIG Ariel fan! She loves to watch "The Little Mermaid" and loves to sing the songs from the movie. This was such a special treat for our entire family to witness their first official meeting. Kate couldn't wait to see her and when it finally became her turn with Ariel she hesitated a little and got very quiet - she was in awe - but she lit up with a big smile when Ariel sang "Ahh ahh ahh..."
