It was my plan to do this post yesterday (on her birthday), but life got in the way. Here is a collage of pictures of her through the last 18 years. I can't believe how fast it's gone. She will graduate high school the end of May and start college in the fall.
She had a scavenger hunt party with her girlfriends last night. They had a blast (can I just tell you, 8 teenage girls are very loud, but very fun). Here is the cake I made for them (I'm making another for the family get together today). Her friends are so sweet...they told me when they go to other birthday parties they don't eat the cake there, they only eat mine because it is so good (I have ruined their tastebuds for anything else but mine). I'll post a picture of the family cake after I have it all done. Have a great day and weekend. I'm going to go bake a cake!
Here is the family cake (on the left...with the "happy birthday" candles). I think it looks much nicer than my first cake. Everyone had a good time and it was sad when my sister and her family left (Mandy always cries).
