This is the first time that Kaelyn has been at school on her birthday. Last year her birthday was over the weekend and when she was still in pre-school, we were in Orlando for her birthday. She realized a few weeks before her birthday that she would be at school on her birthday and she was quite excited. She asked me WAY in advance about bringing cupcakes in for her class.
She wanted Hello Kitty cupcakes. I went to the school over her lunch break and took her McDonald's and ate with her. She was so happy. She went on and on about it and just today I heard her talking again about me bringing her lunch on her birthday and eating with her.
Two of her classmates were not in the classroom for the picture for some reason. This is seven of the nine kids in her class.

Opening a few presents at home that night.
John was putting a new Hello Kitty watch on her wrist.
A book from Granma and Grandpa about Emerson the Elephant. It came with and elephant "pal" and soccer ball.
I looked up while Kay was opening presents and saw Buster on the couch covered by elephant pals.
