Birthday time at our house!

It is official. Daughter13 is now Daughter14. Today is the big day. In fact, just about an hour ago would have been the official moment - 14 years since she entered the world.

We've opened the presents. We've been out to dinner. And in just a little while we'll have the cake (with blue frosting, her favorite color!). And throughout the evening she'll talk on the phone with various relatives near and far.

She is actually having her party with friends a couple of weeks from now. They are all going bowling...which really involves a little bowling and a lot of eating cheese fries from the snack bar.

By the way, for those of you who congratulated her on her smart move of sending her wish list to me via e-mail...the strategy was a big success. She scored everything on the list!

Happy birthday, cutie. We love you!

Happy Birthday to D-14! Everything on the list, huh? I'm guessing you'll be receiving another email list in a little less than a year.

Now I'm craving cheese fries ... thanks a lot.

Oh, that "Sweet Sixteen" party will be here before you know it!

(I'm guessing you won't get off with bowling and cheese fries when that rolls around!)

All the best...

In reply to Charlotta-Love's wondering what it is with birthdays this week.... I'll tell ya. My DD was born Sept. 30th. Exactly 9 months after New Years Eve. *wink* My niece was born only 4 years and 5 days after my daughter, very nearly 9 months after THAT New Years Eve..... Easy math, that one.

Em said...

Well Kati, we know how you keep warm on those cold winter nights. :)

Melody said...

My list will be emailed to you shortly. The Starbuck's card should be easy, but you'll need to prepare for the Disneyland passes.
