Tory Joy said it all when she yelled,"Everyone be quiet! It's Auntie Alyssa's birthday!"
My daughter is now 14 years old. Here Alyssa is showing off her new shirt! How fun!! I know most mothers are thinking, "How can my baby girl be that old? Where has all the years gone? It seemed like yesterday and she was starting the first grade." But, what you men don't know is that every mother at my age is actually thinking, "Oh my gosh do I really look that old?" LOL The answer for me is "YES! I really do look old!" Alyssa was born a month early. She was a huge child. By the time she was full term she was over 13 pounds. I know what you woman are all saying, "OUCH!" Well....yeah ouch! She is the child that very rarely get's into trouble. The most conflict she has is yelling at her friends for smoking bud (marijuana). I love her sooo much! I would never want to be her age again. She has so much pressure to be like her friends. Even though we are not in the best neighborhood, she holds onto good values. I'm so blessed to have her:) Okay...I know you are all saying, "Enough already!" Well, I can't help myself! But, I will try and make this short." Now your saying, "Yeah right, Diana make it short? Impossible!"
But, remember, you came to my blog:) LOL Therefore by rights, I am aloud to talk about my kids! HAHAHA Don't you love the way I have a conversation with myself, all the while assuming what most of you are thinking? Another habit that is hard to break. LOL
My daughters know the cameras on. Here is Chanel (in the back) and Savannah. And of course my birthday girl!
I can't believe she's thirteen, (oops...fourteen) GULP..sniffle...Anyway, I love the fact that no matter what happens Haley and Alyssa will always have each other. They spend long nights talking and dreaming about what it is going to be like in highschool next year. Who they are going to hang out with. What boy is the cutest...(okay, hottest in their language). Again...remember those days?
I don't know who took this picture? But, it will always be one of my favorites. They both have such pretty blue eyes...oops..Here I go again. being a annoying mother! LOL Happy Birthday Baby girl! I love you! Love always, MOM!
