I can't believe...

that my girl is 14 years old now!

and that 14 years ago at 10:13 p.m., she made her arrival into this world. Where, exactly, does time go?

She had a great party last night.... She invited six friends over for a slumber party. Did I say "slumber?" Excuse me. I meant to say a "let's-see-who-can-stay-awake-the-longest" party. And, boy, did they!

Well, not completely. A few fell asleep between midnight and 2 a.m. Then a few more managed to find some zzzz's around 4 a.m. Me? I was one of the first asleep.

Here's the nearly-speechless birthday girl after unwrapping "the best present ever." (She's way advanced in the technology department compared to her mom.)




And here she is with her friends after pulling the all-nighter.... Aren't they a bright and fun-looking bunch?


Happy birthday, birthday girl! I love you!

Glad she had fun!

I LOVED slumber parties when I was a kid. I had them well into high school. Nothing is better than a good group of girls being silly having fun!

I don't know where time goes either. I remember when you first came to teach at CRMS and she was just a little girl! Don't blink, she'll be in college...

Glad she had a good birthday and you got some sleep even if they didn't!

I remember the kids having those parties, too.....

how to stay awake until 6 am and then sleep the whole next day......why I ask ?

oh well... I guess it's just the challenge, right ?

I'm too old to play those games anymore...that's for sure :)
