The one where Kate turned four

Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Our neice, Kate, turned four on Saturday. I can't believe how fast she is growing up!

We missed her friends party at build-a-bear, because our pear-bear needed his afternoon nap. But we met up with the whole family for dinner at Ichiban that evening. Our neice and nephew have quite refined palates when it comes to birthdays; Ben wanted steak this year and Kate wanted hibachi. And hey, that is a-ok by me. :) 

The first half of dinner was tense to say the happened to coincide with the end of the epic auburn-Georgia game where auburn gave up the lead with a minute and a half left and stole the game back with seriously the most amazing and improbably Hail Mary pass ever. It is awesome to look back on now, but at the time, when we didn't know what was going to be the outcome, it was not awesome. We tried to make casual conversation around the table but no one really wanted to take their eyes off of their score center app on their phone. Luckily Auburn won (in dramatic fashion) and we could eventually enjoy our dinner and get back to celebrating Kate.

Dinner was good. Perry was definitely a fan of all the rice and chicken and veggies. After dinner and a round of "happy birthday" we gathered back at the Eckleys for cake and present opening. Kate was so precious opening all of her presents...she got so excited about them all. And she is way into purple right now so of course her cupcake icing had to be bright purple.

Happy Birthday Kate! We love you and can't wait to see what the next year has in store for you!
