We started the morning with a trip to Krispie Creme (of course) - rainbow sprinkles, pink milk, and all. After we dropped Katie off at preschool, it was off to the mall for her birthday pictures. Boy did she love that spotlight. She was cute as can be, posing and smiling like a princess. She kept saying "I'm so good at this!" - and yes, she was. Apparently curly hair, a pink flower, and some glamor shots is enough to make a girl feel special.
This girl sure is special. She brings so much love + laughter into our home. She loves her family and is always concerned about how everyone feels. She is the first to offer a hug or kind words if someone is feeling sad. She is quick to say she's sorry.
She loves to laugh and loves to make others laugh. She does so easily with her goofy faces, silly voices, and contagious laugh. She loves to have fun and is so fun to be around.
She is our little performer. She is constantly singing. She picks up a tune faster than anyone I know and if she can't remember the words, she makes up her own. My favorite was her rendition of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to the tune of We're Off to See the Wizard. "Ruuuuuu-dolph the red-nosed reindeer!" (go ahead, try it. It's hilarious). We were laughing for days. Actually, I'm still laughing about it now.
McKenna is such a joy in our family. She is our perfect Little Middle. She looks up to Katie and looks out for Brooke. We LOVE McKenna and are so thankful to have her in our family.

We thought a very special family date was an appropriate way to celebrate our first March Madness. We kept the event a surprise for the girls all the way up to the "ladies & gentlemen."
All the girls knew is that they would be dressing up like princesses for the main event. That was probably enough to make the night special for them. They felt beautiful and they sure looked it too.
But it was all worth it because of this:

She loves water. She is our first that doesn't mind (actually loves) water in her face. She will dive head first into the bath and come up with a huge smile from ear to ear. We call her our little fish. Katie and McKenna thinks that's a funny nickname. I have a feeling we will be spending lots of time at the pool this summer.
Brooke is pure joy in our family. I can't help but smile and get a bit misty whenever I think of sweet Brookie. I just love her so much I can hardly stand it.
Tonight we are going on a family date to Disney on Ice. It is a complete surprise for all three girls. All they know is they are dressing up like princesses for the occasion, but they have no idea what we are doing. I cannot wait.
Tomorrow morning is McKenna's birthday party - Little Einsteins theme. She is very excited. I am excited for her.
Monday is McKenna's actualy birthday.
I am realizing that from now on March will feel like a second Christmas in this house. Maybe even better than Christmas.
So...stayed tuned for lots of pictures - more from Brooke's birthday celebration plus all other festivities.
