Kinley's Half-Birthday

Today was Kinley's half birthday. I can't believe she is 6 months old. I am getting so sentimental today that time is flying by so fast. I mean, she is already half-way through 1 of her 18 years at home with us....1/36th of her childhood is already past. I just can't believe it. We wanted to make today special so I made a special T-shirt for Kinley, saw some of her favorite people and went to dinner as a family. I can't imagine our lives without her. She is so beautiful and funny and sweet and I am so thankful for every day with her.
Kinley got some 'half-used' clothes from Avery, Ben and Sawyer
and she will be the best-dressed girl around!
We had a "half-day" meal (aka - lunch) with Jen and Eden.

Honey came over to bring a couple new presents for her half- birthday :-)
And at half-past 7 (or some say 7:30) we went out to eat as a family.
This face is hilarious...
I loved making Kinley her 1/2 shirt...so much fun...the iron-on fabric and puff paint was inspired from the good ole Spirit Sister overalls we had to wear in high-school.....not sure why I had those since Kristen and I were kicked out pretty much right away for lack of participation....but, at least I learned something :-)
The finished product!
