Sixteen

My Girl is 16.  She had a party on July 18th.  She wanted a lemon cake with lemon icing, and so it was just simple.  But there were 16 candles (no Molly Ringwald) and a bunch of friends–lots of giggling and games (Hide and Go Text).BDay 876I can’t remember why she was so tickled, but I’m glad I caught it.

Blog Bday 881Her REAL birthday was the 27th, which was the day the youth group left for church camp.  I REALLY wanted her to have a surprise, SO I bought a cake from HEB (This caused a pause at the HEB bakery.  I assured them several times I did NOT want it crumb coated OR iced plain–I wanted it NAKED.)  Then I took it to church, made cream cheese frosting, gussied it up and VOILA.  A surprise.

Bday 012This is the look you get from your 16 year old daughter when you come out of the church kitchen singing happy birthday and carrying a great, big cake.  And if she was a little embarrassed, everyone else was THRILLED that there was cake to be had.  I can HIGHLY recommend an HEB white cake with homemade cream cheese frosting. YUM.

Bday 042Her reaction was the same as Thad’s, “MOM, that makes THREE CAKES!!!!!” (One for her party, one we made at home the day before because she didn’t KNOW about the surprise cake, and one at church.)

  1. I gotta get in bed! But I can’t stop looking at pictures of Victoria! She is sooo beautiful!!!!! Love her selfie with her kitty! Love her face before church camp! Love her funny faces and I love that you captured her funny face at her party! Sigh. Can’t believe she’s almost 17!! (Oliver’s a great name for an orange kitty…what did they decide?)

    • Hi. I’ve been meaning to reply to you here. Yes. Our Dodo is a big ole girl. Did Brandon mention that I saw him in Lewisville?mhe, of course, had no idea who I was and didn’t remember Victoria by name, but when I said Dodo, that sounded familiar. He was surprised that I recognized him, but I told him I had known him from the womb. Ha!

Tell me what ya think.
