Kate's birthday is coming up soon. I've spent part of today giving some thought to her party. I've decided on the cake and the decorations and still have to work on the menu. I'm excited about getting her birthday gifts this year just because I know she will be excited to open them. For the big gift I'm debating between three things: a trike, a slide, or a kid size wooden picnic table. Today I also came up with a good gift that Kendall can work on to give her. We're going to make play doh together in various colors and get little containers for it and get a few little tools to go with it (rolling pin, small cookie cutters...).
