13 Again

It has finally happened folks.

I am now the official mother of TWO teenagers!

My middle daughter is now the big 13.

We celebrated her birthday before we left home. She decided to have a slumber party, and she invited lots of giggly girls over to help her celebrate.

We ate homemade ice cream cake at her request.

She had a blast playing "Just Dance 3" with her friends.

Howie was his usual flirty self.

So thankful my daughter has such great friends!

On her actual birthday, we celebrated by eating Chifa (Chinese food from Peru) with my cousins, and feasting on Coldstone ice cream cake, which was declared the BEST CAKE EVER by my girls.

We watched American Idol, and made fun of all the people who THINK they can sing. I have no idea why some of these people think that they are going to be "the next American Idol. The judges cracked me up when they asked one particularly horrible sounding contestant if he had ever recorded himself, and then listened to it. He said no, and they told him that he should, because then he would hear what THEY had to hear! Ha!

Happy 13 Birthday, Kare Bear! Daddy and I love you so very much, and are proud of the young lady that you are becoming ♥


  1. Happy Birthday to you lovely daughter. It looks like you gave her a celebration she will always remember.

  2. Happy Birthday to your daughter! She is beautiful:) Love the birthday cakes!!

  3. She is adorable. Happy Birthday to your daughter!

  4. She is so cute... Enjoy these days... I feel like someone said "On your mark, get set, go!" when our girlies became teenagers. It seems like it has been a sprint to the finish line ever since... A thrill packed, fun filled, amazing ride of a sprint, but a sprint all the same!
