The Teenager Turns 18!

What was she looking at?



Oh, nothing. Just the giant Hummer limo that picked her up at 5:00 pm.



Filled with balloons, cool fiber optic lights, mirrored ceiling, loud music, pizza...



mom....


brother....



silly dancing sisters...


and teenage friends.




Stopping at various locations throughout the city for a "scavenger hunt' where pre-planted gift bags for each teenager were waiting.

And oooo-la-la I had sooooooo much fun shopping for nail-themed items, bath-themed items, writing-themed items and candy themed items.

And eating the candy-themed items.



Only one melt down regarding a left behind gift bag, ( The Teenager) one seizure ( a guest), and one popper mishap pictured above. Seriously! I'm amazed myself at how smoothly it all went.


And at the end of the three hour limo ride, a very happy teenager.




Happy 18th! You've come a long way baby!

She's a beautiful young woman. I had to laugh, she has the same expression on her face in the first picture as she does in the last. Love the photos.

That looks like the best birthday party in the world.

And you're the best Mom.

Happy both of you.

PS You're going to have to change the Baby's name, she looks more like a toddler now.
