Happy Birthday Katelyn!

Hello Everyone!

I cannot believe that my baby girl is 13 today!  Where has the time gone?  I still remember going into labor (2 weeks over her due date) and then going to the hospital and having her many hours later.  My husband and I didn't quite know what to do with her when we got home.  I couldn't even sleep a wink at night thinking that she might stop breathing.  We sure learned a lot with this one!  In the beginning, patience was one of them.  :)  What can I say about my sweet daughter.  She is turning out to be more than a daughter.  She is my friend, too, and I love that.  

This is a picture of her in front of the LDS Salt Lake Temple.  

Our family picture from this week.  
 
Katelyn is super smart!  She is on the honor roll for her school!
 
Breakfast in bed!  A Cardon family tradition.
 Birthday lunch with her mama today!
 
Of course we had to stop and get a gourmet cupcake since Katelyn is in LOVE with anything cupcake!
Katelyn, I am so grateful that you are in our lives.  You have always been a joy in our family and we love you so much!!

  54. She's a pretty young lady! Hope her birthday is special.
    My daughter will be 3 in a couple months, when she was born (at 29 weeks) she weighed only 1 pound 14.8 ounces. I was terrified we would lose her. But what an awesome God we have to have her with us today.

  72. Hi Robyn, Catarina(Docerela) again... I would like to let yu know that I'm new to your site. I think i must have come across your site about 2 weeks ago.and i been following you... so much that I actually purchase my first cricut. I couldnt find the pink one so i bought the smaller one that was black... after a few days I keeped looking at it and I didnt' like the color. I thought it would grow on me, but I was soooo wrong.. I return it back to wallmart thank God and I exchange, but I had to get the green one instead. Wallmart doesnt have the pink one anymore. Anyways just wanted to tell u a little story about me... feel free to check my website.
