Who Says You Can't Eat Your Cake and Enjoy It Too?

Oh how time does fly.

My baby girl just turned 14.  It is still so hard to believe that I have two teenagers.  Not to mention a preteen and a 9 year old.

For Lauren's birthday we went to my mom's house and swam.  They fixed burgers on the grill, and we had homemade ice-cream.  I made Lauren's favorite cake......chocolate cake with chocolate icing......yum! 

We let the kids swim for a bit, then had them come in for the cake....

Lauren REALLY enjoyed her cake!   

She is such a sweet girl and shared with her momma.....

After the cake fight, we all ate a piece of cake with some of the home-made ice cream, then everyone got in the pool.  
We swam under the stars for a long time before heading home.

Later....., at 12:00 midnight everyone in the house (8 people in all) gathered around Lauren as we had secretly planned, and yelled HAPPY BIRTHDAY engulfing her in a big group hug.  

I hope that no matter how old she gets, no matter how many birthdays she has had... She always feels special on her birthday.  She has been a true blessing to me, and makes everyday special for me.

You are becoming a very beautiful young woman Lauren. I am so proud of you.

 I love you...., Mom.
