Happy Birthday Katie!

Eight years ago just about everyone we knew was sitting a Floyd Hospital waiting on this girl to make her appearance!
 (the oldest pic I can find on my computer right now.  
Back in 2002 we were still taking mostly "film" pictures! ha ha!)

Katie was 8 lbs 8 oz when she was born.  Today, she weighs: 85 pounds!

Unfortunately I am a bad mom and can't remember her length at birth. :(  
But today she is: 4'4 1/4" (52 1/4")!!  Only 1 foot shorter than me!

Here are some of her favorites as of today:
Favorite color: red
Favorite meal: spaghetti and meatballs
Favorite: dessert: cupcakes
Favorite tv show: Strawberry Shortcake
Favorite thing to do: sit on her bed and play Barbies
Favorite book: her Barbie book
What she wants to be when she grows up: a beautiful princess
Favorite school subject: science
Favorite place to visit: Chicago

There will be more to post later because the "actual birthday" (as we like to say) festivities will take place this evening.  Dinner at Steak n Shake, cupcakes, and of course this weekend, the conclusion of birthday week with the Disney on Ice Show.  Stay Tuned!
