The Birthday

The big birthday started out with the boys and I running around buying all the necessary stuff. I'm a "kit" person. No thinking required. Give me a kit and I'm happy. The party store has a nice "Sweet 16" themed kit in pink and black which just happened to (almost) match the cake I ordered. Works for me!

Axel was thrilled to death when we picked up the cake. He clapped and cheered. "Ooooooh COOOOOL!" he hollered.

Ok, on with  it, shall we?

On Weds (her actual birthday) Good morning birthday girl!


There were phone calls from big brothers...

The balloon was up when she got home from school. I could hear her screaming from the bus.






All the rest of the pictures have other kids in them so I won't post them. Angela and her friends had a great time, and the girls stayed for a sleepover. Lucky for me none of them are night owls so everyone was asleep by 11:00, including mom!
