{Happy Birthday Blondie!}

Miss Katie will be celebrating her 11th birthday here shortly...

Katie was born Kaitlyn early early in the morning. She was a week overdue, but so so tiny! She only weighed 6 lbs 7 oz for being a week over. She was such a good baby. So sweet and full of smiles!

My dad is the one who gave her the nickname "Blondie"

When Katie became a big sister, she was & still is THE best sister! She was so careful around her little sister, so loving. She is such a wonderful sister, cousin, granddaughter, niece, & daughter... so giving of herself, always sacrificing for others. She has a tremendous amount of love for her family.

Katie is also a wild child.... you would never have known it unless you REALLY know her. She loves to test the limits, and often gets hurt doing so. In the above picture, she is sporting a jazzy splint because she flipped her Barbie car over with her sister in it! She broke her arm... Several years later, she lacerated her liver on her bike handlebars. After several days of being in the hospital, and taking it easy for 6-8 weeks.... she was considered whole again. She also has a huge love for all things that go fast (like ATV's). She recently made her daddy proud by showing off her shooting skills (picture to come soon in another post!).

Katie also loves sports. Her favorite passion is soccer & Highland Dance. She once played on a team of soccer full of BOYS! She was the only girl, and she held her own! Katie has won numerous awards/trophies & one scholarship for Highland Dance. She is a beautiful dancer.
When Katie was 8, she was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Katie has an immense love of music. When she's not bopping to Taylor Swift or singing along to the Mamma Mia soundtrack, she loves her karaoke machine. She is also an '80's girl... :)

Happy Birthday Katie! You're a STAR in our eyes sweetie! We love you!
