Happy Birthday, Kinlee!!!!

Kinlee is 7 today!!!! I can't believe it's been that long since we brought her home for the first time. She was so excited this morning to wake up to snow - we decided it was her birthday present from God!! :) With her birthday being on a Monday, she has to wait until Saturday for her party - bummer! Until then, she opened one of her presents this morning, I'm headed to school to eat lunch with her today, and she got to choose the supper menu for tonight - "white spaghetti" (fettucini alfredo) and garlic bread! As I think back on the past 7 years with Kinlee, here are a few things I am thankful for:

1. Kinlee Rae Finton
2. Her love and compassion for animals
3. Her tender-heartedness
4. Her "gullability" - we've had some fun with that
5. Her ability and love of playing by herself
6. Her impromtu dances that keep us all laughing
7. Her funny faces and expressions
8. Her "grace" (or lack thereof - which she inherited from me)
9. Her eyes that can tell stories
10. HER

I will be posting plenty of birthday party pictures this weekend, but until then.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KINLEE!!!! We love you!
