Kennedy's Magical Birthday

Thanks again Beth for making the best invites!

This past Saturday Kennedy had her third birthday party. We celebrated with family and friends - including Nana, Papa Raftery, Aunt Kitty & Craig. Craig put on an exciting magic show. It was such a treat watching all the faces wonder in amazement at Magic Murphy's wonderful talent - all the kids loved him! My mom came in on Monday, my aunt Kitty arrived on Wednesday, Papa Raftery on Friday and Craig got in Saturday morning - the whole week was definitely a treat for us. Miss Kennedy was so excited the day of her birthday. She couldn't wait for her friends to arrive and for the fun to begin. My aunt Kitty and I put together a birthday outfit for Kennedy which consisted of a tutu with star embellishments, a t-shirt with an iron-on number three, and a princess crown. She looked adorable and was with out a doubt the birthday girl! It was a wonderful day and a wonderful week! Thank you mom, Papa Raftery, Aunt Kitty, and Craig for making Kennedy's day so special! Love you!

When I was reading this I thought I wouldn't cry-but the lemonade remedy got to me. Kennedy is such a unique child-every time I see her it is a new experience. The 'excuse me' is such a perfect example of how her parents have made such a huge impact in her overall development-she is sooo much fun to be around but also polite. I will say that I have gotten about 1 hour more sleep since I returned.Kennedy would wake me at the crack to tell me Nana-its light out! I had a lot of fun at her party-Craig did a wonderful job and Kitty had ideas to make everything come together.Sam and Jared-you are wonderful parents and I feel bless to be part of it all. Love, Mom
