Katelyn's 2nd B-day

Here are some highlights of Katelyn's 2nd Birthday!

Ryan made her this awesome Ariel cake (since I wasn't feeling well - you're awesome, Ryan!), which was the first thing she saw in the morning after coming downstairs. She was soooo excited, and guess which movie we had to watch? You guessed it, "The Little Mermaid."

Then, she opened her first b-day present, which in the Fish family is traditionally cold cereal/pop tarts, or a combination of the two. She got Barbie cold cereal and Barbie pop tarts, lucky girl!

Here are some more pics of her enjoying her presents - a princess backpack, new little magnadoodle, lots of bracelets, a noisemaker, ....

A vacuum just like Mom's!

Later that day, we had a little party with the Fish cousins and played Ring Toss (another Fish tradition). Basically, you make a circle with a rope and put all kinds of candy and other prizes inside it. Then the kids take turn tossing a ring and whatever it lands on, they get to put in their goodie bag! It is so much fun, and I actually remember playing it when Ryan turned 23 with his family!

During ring toss, all Katelyn wanted to get was the pretty rings. So at the end, all her cousins brought her the ones they had won and gave them to her! She was soooo happy - she has such nice cousins!

Later that night, we were heading to our niece JoLynn's b-day party (they have the same b-day, just a couple years apart) when Katelyn threw up in the car (not sure if she was carsick or what), so we had to turn around and come back home, clean her, the car/carseat up, etc. Ryan ended up staying with Katelyn while I took Cole for a little while to the party. Katelyn was kind of sad until I came home with this awesome present from her cousins:

And then we just let her "chill" in her new princess sleeping bag with her new Baby Belle from Aunt Mo & Uncle Ken.

She ended up having a great b-day, even with the little carsickness incident.

We're so glad to have you in our family, Katelyn, and can't believe how much you've grown!

We love you so much, sweet girl!
