I found some more cute photos that I did not post from Kate's party AND my dear friend, L gave me her photos and so I just had to post more pics from Kate's party.

Warning~there are lots of photos.

You can see how cute the monogrammed bottle with polka dot paper straws turned out here.  Look carefully and you'll see the "S" on this one.  They are filled with sparkling pink lemonade.

Thank you to my good friends who helped out at the party!  I am especially thankful to my friends, Amy and LaWana for taking such beautiful photos.  The photos I posted are a combination of theirs and mine:)

Tomorrow is Kate's actual birthday so I am sure I will post again.

P.S. Thank you so much for all of the prayers and good wishes for Harry. I cannot tell you how much they calm me in what is proving to be a very stressful time right now. I wanted to clarify though that we are not going through all of this testing because of his small size (someone alluded to that I think).  Dave and I are small.  Harry will likely be small no matter what.   We are doing the testing because he has severe stomach issues, food allergies and headaches that we need to diagnose and treat.

  8. First off, I am so sorry Harry is going through such a difficult time right now. I will pray that the doctors find out what it is that is causing him problems and will be able to help him. He's such a doll.

    The pics of Kate's party are wonderful! I have to tell you that the thing that I continue to notice is how Kate is on her tippy toes in so many of these pics. If I was a gambling gal, I would say that she will be on pointe before she's 12!

    Beautiful, sweet girl!
