Kyleigh's 6th Birthday, August 17, 2006

Today is Kyleigh's 6th birthday, and tonight we are going to enjoy ice cream at local ice cream parlor. She said the thing she wanted most in the world was an American Girl doll, so I found one "Just Like Me", along with some outfits. Next week, when we have our own family dinner for the August birthdays (with Aunt Katie aka Sissy), I plan to give her the orange dress I made, with the fairy embroidered on the front, and hopefully this weekend, will have time to make the new doll an orange dress too, maybe a little matching purse.

Last week we attended the awards ceremony at the California State Fair. These were Kyleigh's
cat and toucan which is a watercolor and sort of hard to see, that won 1st place.

These are the three that placed second, her sea turtle, giraffe and kangaroo. We are very proud that she did so well, for her first time. The kids were ready to go on the rides that night, but unfortunately the fair didn't start until the next day.

Happy Birthday Kyleigh! From one of your art fans!

Happy birthday to Kyleigh! It hardly seems possible she could be 6 already. I remember how excited you were waiting for her, and now you're 3x a grandma!

You know I'm a big fan of Kyleigh-art!

I can't believe Kyleigh is six already. It doesn't seem so long ago that we were sending blocks from the FQ Aunties to Gramma Karrin . . .
