Wordful Wednesday – Grace Becomes a Teen!

Easy peasy.

Grace became a teenager last week.  I don’t know where the time went.  I swear to you that it was just a few years ago that it was New Years Day of the New Millennium and I was joyfully ringing in the new year 90 lbs. heavier with thoughts of the impending birth of my first baby!




Here were are 13 years later and I have a beautiful teenager on my hands that I couldn’t be prouder of.  Truly.  She is such a good girl.  I just can’t. believe. she’s a teenager.securedownload7

For her birthday we went out to lunch and ice skating.  Well, she and her sister and cousin ate lunch and went ice skating.  I sat in the wondering where the time went and how it’s possible to gain that much weight in 9 months.PicMonkey Collage23
