When your birthday is New Year's Eve...everyone wants to celebrate with you

It seems like just yesterday that you were this small.

And now. Look at how you have grown.

You are becoming a remarkable young woman. Sweet and kind. Unless we are talking about your sister.

Smart. Inquisitive. Loquacious. Go look it up.

You are a wonderful daughter. Good sister. Mostly. And a great friend.

And tonight. During your birthday celebration...I saw the future.

As you and your friends. Instead of watching the show. Stood and stared. And screamed. And declared your undying love for the hot knights.

Theme song: Pink - So What. Because that is what Katie says is her theme song. And can you just imagine three giggly girlies singing this at the top of their lungs last night on our way home from Medieval times? While they were jacked up on caffeine and Red Knight pheromones?

What a cute young lady! What a great time! Happy Birthday! Oh and I think the red knight is cute too in a Eric The Red way.

Shannon said...

Ok, I totally had to go look up loquacious. Sigh.



Happy Birthday Katie!

Rhea said...

Happy Birthday to Katie!!

Loved this post. So sweet. And I love that you told her to look things up. And that knight was totally cute.

Linda said...

Well who wouldn't scream over the hot knights, especially when it's your birthday! What a sweet post for your young lady ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY Katie!

Btw, did you try to hold out and give birth on New Year's day? My oldest's b/d is the end of Jan, and I actually had a nurse ask if I wanted to induce "early" to be the first to give birth in 1994.

Happy Birthday! It looks like it was an awesome one! I love Medieval Times :)

Mama Dawg said...

See...now that's the kind of pre-teen I want LOML to grow up to be.

And I do believe she's well on her way.

Your daughter is beautiful in every way!

John Deere Mom said...

Um, I think I might just need to have my birthday with some knights. I do love a man in uniform...or costume...whatever.

Kori said...

That Knight is SmokiN!

Happy Birthday and Happy New Year to my Hero. I mean who else would get to love up on some Knights and have an Edward Shrine. And be the coolest little Miss I know? Yep it is soooo Katie.

Cathy said...

That last picture is priceless! You can totally see how giddy they are! Ahhh, I remember being that young....

Happy Birthday Katie. Look at those big smiles on their faces standing by the knight or king or whatever he is, who cares, he was hot right! That looks like a great time.

Happy Birthday, Katie and many happy returns :-)

LOL...hormones seem to be rearing their head, earlier and earlier. Good luck, but the story is so cute :-)

Karen said...

Happy New Year, BTW.

Was it a medieval dinner type show. We had one of those places in Wellington, NZ ... I went a couple of times. It was hysterical.

And where was this Medieval Manor exactly, and what was Hunky McKnight's name again?

Um. Just asking. No reason.

Loquacious is good. As is being young, beautiful, jacked up on caffeine and Red Knight pheromones.

I'm going to google Medieval times now...I'm in greater Atlanta, too.

Happy Birthday, Katie. Happy New Year, Kat!

Heather said...

Happy Birthday, Katie!

I am loving that last picture, with her pink cheeks, standing next to the hot knight...

Oh, the hormones. The teenage angst. The drama.

Good luck, Kat.

BTW, we are planning our Disney trip for March! Yay! Do you know when Kori is going? Just wondering. That scrapbook I won from you is gonna be perfect!

Happy New Year!
