This was the age I was when I moved from California...from everything that was good and familiar, into a little of the unknown. It seems like it wasn't so long ago. Yet my daughter is now that same age...where has the time gone? The worst part is thinking about the fact that she will only be "mine", living in our home, for a few short years. Then she's off to school or on a mission...experiencing life without me. Making decisions without my insight, and eventually finding a special someone who she would rather be with and starting her own family.

ok...I know, I'm being extreme. But I'm right, it is all inevitable. But for now I will try to enjoy the time I have while she still sort of likes me :)

Happy 14th Birthday Emilee!!! We love you and are so very proud of you.

Typical picture pout...
