Yesterday was Older Daughter's seventeenth birthday! Yes, my baby is growing up (*sob*).
We had a small ice cream cake. Notice Lydia's attentive presence.
It's starting to become a group effort to light all the candles!
...BLOW!! (Yeah right, wait until there are fifty candles to blow out!)
We didn't do anything special yesterday except drive through a surprisingly nasty snowstorm to see some friends perform in a high school play.
It was a charmingly hokey comedy called Heaven Help the Po'Taters, and the kids put their hearts and souls into it. A very fun evening.
But Older Daughter's real birthday present will come on Saturday, when I'm taking a bunch of kids into the city to see The Hobbit. They can't wait!
