Happy Birthday, Kitty Cat!

I still remember the night she was born. Tiffany had been in labor for about twelve hours, the epidural never kicked in, the doctors were running around with "Stat!" written in their very expressions, mommy and baby were both running a fever ... and I'm the one that nearly collapsed from exhaustion by the time it was all over and done. (Shows you who the strong one in my family really is!)

God blessed us with this wrinkled, pinkish purple, squalling, perfect little angel, and our lives have never been the same since. And now, ten years later, she is still turning our world upside down!

We gorged ourselves on Tex-Mex and fajitas at Lupe Tortilla, and then headed over to spend the rest of our vast fortune at Build-a-Bear.

We had little mini-celebrations throughout the rest of the weekend, culminating in lunch-with-Daddy and cupcakes for the class at school yesterday. All in all, a wonderful weekend and a fun celebration of our joyous babe.

Here's the best shot of the weekend:

Who couldn't love that face?

...I still can't believe she's ten, though.

She's a cutie-pie and you're a lucky Daddy.
