Happy 12th Birthday Hayley!

It's hard to believe my baby is 12 years old already! When I asked her this morning if she felt any different now that she was 12 she said to ask her again tonight at 6:18 pm (the time she was actually born)! Too funny!

We will be celebrating tonight by going out to a Mexican restaurant so she can have her favorite meal - a beef enchilada and frijoles (refried beans)!

Tomorrow she will be celebrating with five friends. Hayley is having a sleepover!! And friends are actually coming! (Last year she was supposed to have a sleepover, but then another classmate had a birthday sleepover and all Hayley's friends went to that sleepover being she was still kinda new in town. I felt so bad for her. But this year we actually have people coming!) It should be a fun time!

Happy Birthday Hayley!
You are turning into such a nice, young lady!
Stay sweet!

It's My Birthday!

It's my birthday,

And I'll cry if I want to,

Cry if I want to,

Cry if I want to,

You would cry too if it happened to you!

Boy do I hate getting older!
I don't know why, but I do.
According to my daughter, however, I'm not old!
She says I can be 28 forever
If you were to ask her how old I am, she'd tell you 28 (and smile)
Gotta love her!

I Am The Mother Of A Teenager!

That literally shocks me every time I say it!!! Where did the time go??? Seriously!!!

My little boy turned 13 yesterday!!! We celebrated with family yesterday. After cake and ice cream, we were going to go bowling but no one (except for us four) wanted to go and we all ended up chatting too long. The bowling alley had very short open bowling hours yesterday due to a tournament and it being Sunday. So the four of us will go bowling this week or weekend.

For the invitation, I created a teenage announcement - a play on a birth announcement - to announce the arrival my teenager. Hey, I thought it was pretty creative! :) (I put the white line across his middle and last name - don't want to give out too much info online!)

It's kinda hard to read. It says:

October 12, 2008 - 12:42 a.m.
105.4 Pounds - 5 Feet 2 1/2 Inches
Proud Parents: Dean and Andrea
and Little Sister Hayley
We are celebrating with cake and ice cream on Sunday at 2 pm at our house.
Hope you can join us!

Happy Birthday Son!

It's been an awesome 13 years!!

You've grown into a fine, young man!

4th of July 2008

OK, so I know I'm REALLY behind in my posts but I still want to share them with you so here I go!

To celebrate the 4th, Dean's brother and his family invited us to their cabin in Wisconsin. We left on the 3rd and came home on the 6th. The day we got there it was extremely windy but the rest of the weekend was awesome!! We got many boat rides in, some swimming, and LOTS of relaxing.
