One of Kj's favorite past times is coloring. Her pictures are becoming more detailed, and it is not uncommon that she will make a book about whatever subject (movie) she is thinking about the most at present. She and M are the best of playmates (who also fight), and many of her pictures include her and her sister playing together. I love those pictures! Kj loves to be silly and have fun. Because of the bounteous deciduous tree population in our area, she is also currently loving raking up leaves and jumping in them.
For her party, she invited a few friends over for a Rapunzel celebration. I made some yarn braids and purchased some fake flowers with which to decorate said braids. I think they turned out cute. My extremely talented niece, Bean, made a great "Pin the Tail on Maximus" game, and we made a Pascal puzzle for the girls to find and put together. I think everyone had a good time. It always amazes me how much effort goes into preparing a party, and the party is over so quickly!
On her actual birthday, I didn't want to make another cake and frosting so Kj chose peanut butter bars, yum! We had the local fam over and made a quick evening of it. We let the birthday child choose all their meals for the day, and they also don't have to do any chores, lucky ducks. It's so cute to see how much children anticipate their birthdays.
We love our Kj for her creativity, love, energy, intelligence and friendliness. She is a wonderful eldest child.
