Happy Birthday Emilee



Homemade yellow cake with Chocolate frosting...



I know...I look wayyyy to young to have a 13 yr old, right? That's exactly what I was thinking. Ok, maybe I "look" like I could have a 13 yr old easily, but I definitely don't feel like it.

I remember when Emilee was born, how little she was, how friendly and funny she was. And now, well, she's not so little, she's friendly when her hormones don't interfere, and the only thing funny apparently is me, funny-looking that is. I can't dance, I can't sing...the list goes on and on. It's so weird how your cool factor goes out the window as soon as you have a teenager.

This year I wanted to do something special for Emilee. She was able to invite 4 of her closest friends to go down to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch, hang out at the Gateway Mall (which was torture for me, I'm not a mall person or much of a shopper), then headed home with a dessert stop along the way.

I'm grateful Emilee has such good friends. I know I don't have to worry about Emilee too much. She does very well in school, she loves Young Women's, she has a lot of good friends, and I know she wants to do what's right. I just hope that these teenage years will prove to be a time where we grow closer and not apart. Emilee and I have some similarities, but the truth is, she is very different than I am and I hope I can understand and learn to accept some of the things she may want or not want. Starting to let go a little bit is killing me...because I know everything of course. :) But we all love Emilee and know that our family is better off and laughs more often because of her. Happy Birthday Emilee, we love you!

So fun to spend a few minutes with her the other day!! She is becoming quite the young woman. I see the very things that you see in her too. She is more like you than you think. Great since of humor too. Love her so much!!
