I can't believe my baby is 16. Today Eleni turned sweet 16. It seems like yesterday she was this beautiful little baby girl with blond fuzz and a perfectly round head. She was tiny forever and then she started to grow and she was a baby no more. I miss those innocent little girl ways but I am also very proud of the young woman she is becoming! Although she didn't get her real birthday wish I think over all she enjoyed her day.

Eleni loves Miley Cyrus. She is a huge fan so when it came time to get a cake we couldn't resist the Hannah Montana Cake. Thanks to Big Sis Jessica who went and got Eleni's cake while I was at work.

They grow up so fast.


In my last post I said how much I love summer. BUT I am so loving the Fall crafts everyone is sharing. When I do move I am going to have so many new ideas thanks ladies! :) I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed weekend.

Happy 'Sweet 16' to your daughter. They grow up too fast, huh? My baby just turned 23! Boy do I feel old.

How is the job going? I still haven't heard anything on the one I was suppose to start this month but all is good because I heard about a job as a baker for a retirement home. Full time and with benefits. I may have to put off classes for the fall.

Take care,

I'm glad it was a good day for Eleni! The 16th birthday is so special! She is a very pretty young lady! And that cake looks yummy! One of my weaknesses is that very sugary icing on top of those cakes!

I'm not sure I'm ready to think about fall yet....that means alot of planning and responsibilities with school and our homeschool group and I'm enjoying my break! :)

Hope you have a great week!
