Birthday Party!

Kaylee had a birthday party on Sunday in celebration of her 5th birthday. Of course, it was a princess party. I took on the task of baking her a Barbie cake. It didn't turn out too bad. It only took two trips to the grocery store and breaking Barbie's legs off.

After the cake was made, I asked Kaylee what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday. Yes, I know, this is something I should have never asked. It could have blown up in my face. Lucky for me she said she wanted a pink cake.

Here she is in all her glory with five candles blazing.
Kaylee was very excited about each present she opened. She wanted to hold everything up and get her picture taken.

Some of the pictures turned out better than others. I just love how she managed to cover almost her entire face.

Here she is all made up with the make-up kit from Shannon. By the way Shannon, have I thanked you yet? Wow! She is loving the glam look.


Kaylee's present from Mommy and Daddy was a trip to the water park in Shipshewana. As you can see from the pics below, she had a great time.

Did Kaylee Get in Trouble at School?

Kaylee was very sad when she got off the school bus on Monday afternoon. Cory asked her why she was feeling down. She told him that she got in trouble at school and had to stand in the corner. He asked her why. She said she was singing when she was supposed to be quiet. They had a talk about how it was important to listen to the teacher and do what she says. They ate donuts. Everyone was happy when Mommy arrived.

I was very intrigued by her story. Kaylee is a very good student and has never had any behavior problems at school. I was a little bit surprised. So, I asked Grandma Jerri to do some checking when she dropped Kaylee off at preschool the following day. I thought maybe this would give us the real scoop.

Turns out Kaylee did not get in trouble by the teacher. She did play 'school' with the other children during their free playing time. (Seriously, not very creative to play school while at school - whatever!) Anyhow, the teacher thinks that maybe one of the students proclaimed himself/herself the 'teacher' and told Kaylee she had to stand in the corner for singing.

I guess Kaylee's not a troublemaker afterall.
