Katie is our 8th grandchild and 3rd granddaughter.
2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. Those posts tell you a lot about Katie 'through the years'. And the following pictures will show how she's changed physically 'through the years'.
So it's no coincidence that she also started getting tons of letters from colleges giving her lots to think about in the next year or so.
And, Katie got a job this year at CVS for which she thanks her brother David probably because he graduated and went off to college leaving an opening. And I'm betting he put in a good word for her too.
Also this year, Katie got a 2016 Volkswagen Jetta! She paid the down payment herself which depleted her savings but thanks to her job, she's built that back up again.
She moved into David's room after he left for college and decorated it "kind of girly but really pretty".
And she went to her first country concert - Darius Rucker - which she loved.
Also, she added that she started her junior year this year and school got hard. I don't think that will be a problem for Katie though because she always applies herself and she's always conscientious, and she's never afraid of hard work.
She's always been a Daddy's girl.
but she's a Mom's girl too. They are very close.
And she's close with her brothers
patient and loving, (proven by the fact that she is always surrounded by her younger cousins who adore her.)
And unfailing sweet.
I could also mention that she's smart, creative, sensible, and almost perfect but I don't want to get too carried away. I'll just suffice it to say that we're extremely proud of her and love her very much! So Happy Birthday, Katie! We're hoping you've had the best one EVER (for about 4 days now) and that the coming year is even better. We love you!
