She's a Teenager!

So, I know I've already mentioned it a few times, but we have a teenager in the house now!  I feel like we celebrated her birthday for an entire week this year which is exactly how she likes it.  It started with the arrival of the Ohio friends and ended with a slumber party with a few Florida friends.  Her actual birthday was on a Wednesday.  We woke her up by playing a crazy cat video on my phone and I think we went to the beach that day (neither of us can remember!) and she took her friends to youth group at church that night.  She didn't want to go initially because they sometimes sing to you and make you stand on a chair or something and she absolutely hates being the center of attention so she texted her leader and made him promise no singing.  So we made her stand on a chair at home while we sang to her before she blew out her birthday candles on her cake.  :)

Once her Ohio friends flew home, she was ready to celebrate again with some of her Florida friends.  She decided to just do a small celebration this year and only invited 3 friends.  We started off with them doing their hair and makeup because I took them to do a photo shoot too.  We didn't go to the beach this time though so they look totally different.  I'll post a bunch in my next blog post.  After freezing at our photo shoot we headed home to pizza and a movie and woke up to cinnamon rolls before church.  

I love that we got to celebrate my girl for a week!  Becoming a teenager is such an exciting milestone and I seriously still can't believe she is one sometimes.  Here are a few photos of her birthday fun.  Scroll to the bottom for the annual birthday survey. Be sure to read her answers in an exasperated, annoyed, teenagery sort of tone in your head.  She may have been upset with me while I gave her the survey.  ;)
