There was a Birthday in the House…

April 12th, 2015 · 13 Comments

There is nothing I can do about it… they just keep growing up. Suddenly my sweet gal is 14 years old. It has been a couple of months since we celebrated a birthday over here and this gal knows how to celebrate in style!!! Earlier this week there was an entire day of baking!!!

The girl who is not afraid of working hard…


The girl who cares about the world we live in…


And isn’t afraid to take a stand…

The girl who loves her friends with all her heart…


And the gal that really believes in a good cause…


The gal who reads so many books, the rest of us just cannot keep up with her…

    happy, happy birthday to your hood 3. I got all teary and she’s not even mine 🙂

    How can we keep them from growing…

    I have a loose tooth here and when C looked at me, he said, Mummy are you sad? And I said yes because it’s a sign you’re growing up too fast 🙁
