Where has Katelyn gone?

Hello everyone! I have returned! There are several reasons why I have disappeared for most of the month of January:
1) School started and I have been really busy!
2) There's a big violin concert coming up this spring, so I have almost doubled my daily practice time, leaving me with little to no time to write a blog post.
3) We're getting ready for a big skating recital/performance this spring, so I'm working hard three nights a week at skate practice and once I get back I'm so tired I pretty much collapse when I get home.
4) It was......... MY BIRTHDAY ON WEDNESDAY!!!!!!!!!! Here're some photos from the morning of my birthday:
 On the morning of my birthday, I was suddenly awakened by a weird sound.
 I sat up. Why was there a tray in front of me with a delicious smelling breakfast on it.
 Then I remembered it was my birthday! "YAY!" I screamed.
 Mmmm... yummy food!
 After I swallowed my breakfast, I ran out to the kitchen, where there was a pile of presents on the table.
 "Can I PLEASE open some mom?" I asked. She agreed.
 I quickly grabbed the wrapped box that was closest to me and pulled the lid off.
 Inside it looked like there was a piece of fabric and a pair of shoes, but when I pulled it out, that fabric turned out to be...
 An ADORABLE dress. I love it!
 The next present was a board game called Cadoo. It's fun, you get to act things out and build things with clay. I'm not that great at it yet, though.
 The next present was actually a card from my sisters. At first I thought they'd flaked out on my birthday, (again), but when I opened it, it turned out to be some movie tickets for Saturday! I can't wait! Thanks you guys!
 The next present I grabbed was small and rectangular, I pulled it open,
 It was the Wizard Of Oz, one of my all-time favorite books! Yippee!
 It's a really nice copy too! I can't wait to read it (again)!
 The next present was too big to be a book, but too flat to be much of anything else. What could it be?
 I see Addy, and the American Girl logo, that must be a good sign!
 It turned out to be an Addy activity book. It has dolls, a reversible play scene, a craft and a short story about Addy. I can't wait to do some of the projects in there!
 Here's one of the scenes, Addy's school-house. Awesome!
 The last present was very big...
 I pulled off the paper, it was Kaya! Yay!
 Isn't she so pretty? She has very long braids. I think she's so pretty!

 I think she's just perfect!
 I love her!
So, here's a picture of everything I got for my birthday. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for another post about my family and presents from my extended family that arrived later.
