The birthday girl.

Kate loves shiny, silvery things. Okay, she loves the bling. She loved the bracelets she received for her birthday. One of her favorite gifts was this gorgeous silver cup from Aunt Dooney, Uncle Moon and cousin Ashton.

She also got an adorable tiara. Will is crowning her here.

Dave's family and a very happy Kate Emerson.

What is this beautiful monogrammed thing? Am I supposed to eat it?

Thanks for all your help before, during and after the party!

The cake baker made this adorable little "smash cake" for Kate.

And she made LOTS of yummy cupcakes!
The pearls are edible and pearls are Kate's birthstone.

Cousin Jamie is SO much fun!

He is like a personal jungle gym.

Kate Emerson's Grandmother (Mimi) and Godmother (Staci).
She loves them both very much.

Meeting Uncle Moon for the first time!
