I can hardly believe it!  My little Rugrat will be the big "13" tomorrow!

We are having her birthday party here at the house.  She had planned to camp out in tents with 14 of her friends but because of rain I believe there will be 14 of them in my living room instead. 

I told Hunk we are banished to our bedroom while the girls take over the house.

My son (17) is planning to hit the road to a friends house for the night and our youngest daughter is deciding if having a friend over or going to a friends is her best option.  She can always hang out it our bedroom with us!

We are having a chocolate fountain, sundae's, cupcakes, pizza and soda's in bottles.

If you remember stories about my daughter you remember how organized she is.  She made her party invitations and gave them out well over a month ago.  She has had her "party plan" taped up to the side of my desk along with the list off all who have RSVP and will attend.  She has the list of items I need to purchase.

She is going to make a great wife someday........or drive her poor husband CRAZY!  Can you imagine the detailed lists she will leave for him. HA HA

She went from this......(yesterday..sniff...sniff.)

To this!  And actually this was taken when we were in Maui last July... She seems to have changed even since then!

I will put up more photos of my little girl tomorrow on her special day but I just had to share.

It's becoming a crazy year for me very quickly it seems.  My oldest is getting married in June, TWO DAYS after my other son graduates from high school.  He will then begin college and will be moving away from his Momma! (In August).....  We will only have two left at home and they will be 7th and 8th grade!

Where does the time go?

Hug your babies........big and small.  And have a B-E-A-UTIFUL day!

Ciao Bellas~



  1. I hope she has a wonderful birthday, she's a lovely young lady. They do grow up way too fast don't they? Have a great week-end and I hope you get some sleep :)

  2. HA HA I hope I get some sleep too, though it is doubtful!

    Thanks for the compliment. She really is a blessing. I will tell her you wished her a happy birthday! I'm actually sitting at Starbucks working! I never do this. I had to run errands (after a dental appointment) and Miss Priss her birthday goodies and Hunk needed a couple bids submitted so I ran into starbucks, ordered a drink and submitted my bids. Then wanted to write back to you..... Now I'm off to Target and Costco..then back up the hill....

    Have a great day!!

  3. Momma!!! Oh my word, your little rugrat is as gorgeous as her Momma... Happy Birthday!

    Enjoy your day tomorrow, and have a great great great day!!

  4. Cutie! Isn't amazing how fast they grow up!!! :)

  5. It IS hard to believe how fast they grow. Mine just turned 1 year yesterday and today he is 28. What the heck?? If I try to kiss him, he'll still squirm & go "mooooom" - so I'll have to leave the smooching to his wife!

  6. Ohhhhhh, so sweet. Loooovely.

    My Rugrats are 19 & 21! Enjoy the moments. :)

  7. Thanks Deanna!!! She is just way too excited!

    It is so hard to believe how fast they grow! Like weeds....which I noticed are starting to rear their ugly head in my front yard.....speaking of weeds!

    I am happy to report I got all of the stuff needed (with exception of one quick trip to the grocery store right here in town, for a couple little things)... I ran my rear off today!! But got it done! Woot! Woot!

  8. I wish I knew where that time flew off to! Love the photos of your daughter - hope the party was fun!
