Happy Birthday

I am reading quite a few blogs with New Years Resolutions on them. I'm not real big on resolutions. I make them in the morning and I've forgotten them by lunch. Its not that I want to forget its just that I get so caught up in things and old habits kick in. My only goal for this year is to grow closer in relationships. First with my God and Savior and then with my family and friends. I am a work in progress and I keep reminding myself of that.

This is the alligator cake Tori made for her birthday party. It is made of cupcakes. Emily got a cupcake book from my parents and we've been through it several times. We can't wait to try some others.




These are the pictures of her friends from church that came for her "party". Really to "hang out" and watch a movie with pizza and cake.



They are are great group and I feel blessed she has this group. It's hard to believe she is 14. I remember being 14. It's a tough age and I just pray for both my girls that we all get through it well.I am so proud of her and the young lady she is growing up to be. There are so many days she surprises me with just how thoughtful and intelligent she is. Happy birthday honey. We love you. Now stop growing and stay my "little girl"

It's great to be back blogging after all the computer problems. I did keep up reading and could do a little commenting from work...SHHHH don't tell.I am hoping to get back to completing some projects and get photos of them posted.

Have a blessed day.
Rhonda

Your daughter is very talented..The cupcake alligator looks really good!
I was enlarging your pictures and I want to comment on how much I like your kitchen cabinets! I have a thing for kitchens!!

Rhonda~I thought that your cabinets were antiqued?!
Are they?
Maybe it was just the lighting.
I can't wait to see what you do with them....Make sure you post pictures of the before and after!
