Buggy birthday

Kait's birthday 16

Kaitlyn's birthday Saturday went just as we hoped it would.  The weather was perfect, everything went together nicely, and we were able to have a low-key family day at home.  Katilyn was able to enjoy playing with all her favorite people and wasn't overwhelmed by a crowd or a lot of activities. 

The day started with her birthday table all ready for her and some new little wooden kittens to play with while she waited on her birthday breakfast on her birthday plate.

We do our birthday rings a little differently than some, we leave off the candles (since they are so young) and simply add a new ornament each year. This works for us because I like to pick something to add to the ring that represents something in their life from the past year. This year we picked a bee because of Kait's love of all things "bug" and that is also what set the theme for her party.

If you're wondering the wooden cats came from Two Raccoon Hollow on Etsy and I can not recommend her shop highly enough.  We have so many of her creations (and some in the works) and they have all been terrific. 

The fabric I used for her outfit came from Five Monkey Fabric on Etsy.  I just couldn't resist those little jars of bugs, it is absolutely adorable.  The dragonfly fabric used on her pants was some I've had in my stash for ages.
