I'm so blessed to have been chosen to be her mom. I know people say things like that all the time, but I really feel that way. She's a bright light in my life and has been for eleven years now. She's so amazing to me and in fact she baffles me. She joins more things than I can count and wants to join even more. She just finished up her seventh year, yes SEVENTH year as a cheerleader and is about to begin her sixth year as a basketball player. After that she will begin her sixth year as a softball player, but I'm trying not to think that far ahead. She is also a member of H.O.P., it's a club called Helping Other People. They do good things for the community. She was also elected to the Student Council this yer and shortly afterward was made an Ambassador to the Student Council. Outgoing doesn't even begin to describe this beautiful daughter of mine.
Ok, so some may call it a parenting fail or whatever, but we just don't do birthdays in my family, we never have and I don't know if we ever will. We do a cake and a few presents with the family and it's how I like it.
|From a military family, she LOVES camouflage and I found 3 different outfits at Justice, her favorite store.|
|3 more Justice tank tops, since she's into the "layered" look|
|She got Dance Central and Just Dance|
|The she realized the thrid one is Let's Cheer, a cheer leading game for the Kinet.|
My parents also gave her a Kanga and Roo kangaroo set and a $50 Gift Card to Justice. She scored! I think she had a great birthday without the party. She was surrounded by those she loves and who love her. My dad and mom got to enjoy another one of her birthdays and that warms my heart. That is my dad sitting beside her in the pictures and yes, that is his hospital bed they are sitting on. At least he gets to be at home in a hospital bed instead of in the hospital.
