Foto Story Friday #193– she turned 16 and a self portrait

My second child turned 16!  How did this happen?  Now she can date, YIKES!


Grandpa and Grandma made her a cake.

Happy girl!

Sing a song, blow out the candles and make a wish!


Looking SO thrilled to open her gift.

surprise 1

One bag holds several surprises…. The Help, she loved the movie so we figured she’d love the book too.

surprise 2

Surprise 2 was a movie that she was dying to see and we finally got to watch on New Year’s Eve.

surprise 3

And lastly a matching seat cover for her truck!

She had a great birthday, got to be officially dating, went to her boyfriend’s wrestling match, didn’t have to work and even got presents!  The following day, she took her driving test and is now legal to drive on her own!  Watch out world~!

So I’ve joined LensProToGo’s 52 Weeks Group.  Need to push myself and increase my AWESOME.  The first weeks’s theme was:  self portrait with out you in it.

Self portrait

So do you think I showed who I am with this photo?
