Kyla's Birthday!

Our oldest turned 9 on Wednesday! Man I am feeling old! It was such a fun day though! In Kyla's class in school they have what they call a mystery reader every wednesday. You give her teacher 5 clues about yourself, progressively getting easier so that they will recognize that it is you. Since Kyla's birthday fell on a wednesday I was able to be the mystery reader and then take treats for her class! The last clue I gave was: I have 4 children, 3 boys and a girl. My daughter was born 9 years ago today! Then they introduced me and I got to pick out a couple of picture books to read to her class. Afterwards we passed out her treats and enjoyed some time together with her classmates!
It's has been so amazing to see how fast she has grown up! She specifically told us she didn't want any barbies this year! We got her a few gifts, and then she just wanted money so she could buy her an MP3 player. My little girl is growing up too fast!
She is such a joy to have in our family and although I don't like her growing up so fast, she is really turning into a wonderful young little lady! We love you Makyla!

Kyla's presents
Rhett bringing Kyla the present from him! You can't see it in this photo, but what he is staring at is the cake!! (I think he was actually more interested in the burning candles than eating the cake!)

Blowing out the candles-she got 6 of the 9 on her first try!

Happy Birthday Kyla!!!!!
How fun, it is fun to see pictures of your kids. They do grow up sooo fast. It's sorta sad, but exciting at the same time.
