Happy 7th Birthday Kalysta!!!

Here is our birthday girl through the years.

Kalysta had her 7th birthday on Saturday. We celebrated for her 2 different days. Since her brother and sister were going to be gone this weekend we had a little party for her Wednesday. We went to dinner at Red Robin, Kalysta's favorite restaurant, and then to see Igor. We then came home and she opened her presents.

Who doesn't have fun opening presents??

Then Saturday we took Kalysta to Peter Piper Pizza, oh so much fun, and she and Levi had a grand time! Afterwards we went home to have cake and ice cream and open a few more presents. We feel so blessed to have this sweet, vibrant, happy little girl in our home. James commented the other day that Kalysta ALWAYS has a smile on her face...she's always happy. As I looked through pictures of Kalysta I found that that statement was profoundly true. Kalysta is such a happy individual. She is always able to find the good and fun in life. She never fails to keep a smile on her cute little face. We love that about her! She received lots of fun stuff for her birthday. From her mom she got an American Girl Doll and lots of fun accessories with it. She also got some fun outfits that match her doll, some fun toys and an ipod. From us she got barbies, wii games, a skateboard, (and a helmet and elbow and knee pads) some games, a cupcake maker, polly pockets and a purple ipod. From her grammy and papa she got Heely's which she has only taken off for bed! From her aunt Charity, uncle Kirby and her cousins she got sidewalk paints (thanks Charity...I can't wait till Teagans birthday to repay that favor!) and money. She also got money from her great Grandma and Grandpa Quillen. Thanks to all who made this such a fun day for Kalysta. Happy Birthday sweetie!!!

Happy Birthday Kalysta!!! Ashlee will be so jealous, she wants an American Girl doll for Christmas. She is such a cutie and you're right I don't think I have EVER seen her without that beautiful smile on her face. :)

"You've had a birthday shout hurray! We want to sing to you today. One year older and wiser too. Happy Birthday to you!"

*tear* we couldn't sing to her in Primary, so I posted our birthday song here. Happy Birthday, Kalysta!!
