My cousin Kelly’s daughter, Katie’s, birthday party is usually right around Christmas when I am home so I usually attend so that I can see their family and also other members of my extended family on my mom’s side. This year Katie is 4. Also, here are some photos from her party last year.
Me and my Aunt Sue.
Uncle Mike, Aunt Connie, and Cousin Matt watching football.

My 2nd(?) cousin Dominic and niece Stephanie.
Matt, Dominic and Katie’s dad Corey is my cousin Kelly’s husband. He’s an outdoorsman who loves to fish and hunt. This fish that’s mounted on the wall kind of freaked me out. It looks scary!

My mom, my niece Stephanie and my Aunt Sue.
The kids took turns whacking this Dora the Explorer pinata. It seems weird for a kid to pick out a pinata of a cartoon character they like and then basically pummel and decapitate it to get to its insides, no?
Kelly helps Stephanie take a turn at abusing Dora as Katie looks on hoping it will be the hit that makes the candy fall!
