Sweet 16

How's this for breaking all the rules? Birthday cake ... complete with lighted candles ... for breakfast!!!

I knew Rachel planned to spend the next 3 nights with her BFF as Lindsey's parents are chaperoning the senior class trip for her sister, so they asked if Rachel could stay with Lindsey so neither she or the dog had to be alone. So I decided if we were going to have birthday cake, it had to be this morning.

So this is the sight that my baby daughter woke up to today as she stumbled into the kitchen. She said "mom, what are you doing?!!" Then I stepped aside and she saw the lighted cake and the look on her face was priceless!

I don't understand how she can be 16 ... I just had her, like, yesterday!

  1. Happy Birthday Rachel!! I can remember you having her too. Hard to believe she is 16. Love the cake, and hey we let the kids have ice cream for dinner the other weekend! They thought it was so cool. To finish it off we gave them a bowl of cereal before bed. Nothing like being crazy.
