The Great Cake Toss of ’09

SCROLL DOWN! This post has several sections. Also, I made something like 10 posts today so you may even need to click “Older Posts” to see them all. 🙂

It was Kalyn’s birthday yesterday and we had a lot of fun. For most of the past year I had planned on having some kind of family get together for Kalyn’s birthday, but since we moved that was no longer an option. So, I decided it would be fun to take a ton of video of picture all throughout the day so that we could share her birthday with everyone. Here it goes.

The following videos were meant to be for Kalyn’s big fans, like Grandmas and Grandpas, so they’re kind of long.

First we have the video and pictures of Kalyn’s birthday. First, we start with breakfast. Then, Kalyn gets ready to go drop Dad off and go to storytime at Babies R Us (courtesy of the library). Then, we go ahead and go to the library to pick up some books. Then we come home and have lunch and play and get dinner ready. The music is from some kid’s music CDs we checked out from the library.  There is also a cameo of Kalyn’s new cousin, Briton, who was born yesterday and gets to have the same birthday as Kalyn. Then we go to the Lullaby Concert, a once a year event also hosted at the library for kids of all ages. Last, Kalyn has a bath and gets ready for bed. (I put the cake and presents in their own videos, as follows.)

Next, we have video and pictures of opening presents.  I was really amazed at how good Kalyn got at opening her own presents.  It’s kind of fascinating to watch her work the paper open.  By the end all she needed was a little rip to get her started.

Last, we have video of Kalyn “eating” her cake.  In the end, most of it ended up on the floor.

So, that ends my day of updating the blog.  Seriously, all these updates quite literally took my whole day, so no more complaining about me not updating the blog! 🙂 I’m glad I was able to get everything up, but in the future I’ll not try to do so much at once.

    Fun posts! (I especially like the dancing.) I hope that Kalyn had a great birthday yesterday. It sure looks like it. I had great intentions of having her gift arrive in time…but I hope she’ll forgive us. Next week!

    Thanks for sharing the pictures with us. I still can’t get the videos but hope to get that fixed when we go home. Kalyn is such a doll and you are such a good Mommy!
