Happy 14th Birthday Marie!!!

 R. 14th bday 049

Do you know how much you mean to me?

As you grow into what you will be.

You came from within, from just beneath my heart

it's there you'll always be though your own life will now start.

You're growing so fast it sends me awhirl,

With misty eyes I ask, Where's my little girl?

I know sometimes to you I seem harsh and so unfair,

But one day you will see, I taught you well because I care.

The next few years will so quickly fly,

With laughter and joy, mixed with a few tears to cry.

 As you begin your growth to womanhood, this fact you must know,

You'll always be my source of pride, no matter where you go.

You must stand up tall and proud, within you feel no fear,

For all you dreams and goals, sit before you very near.

With God's love in your heart and the world by its tail,

You'll always be my winner, and victory will prevail.

R. 14th bday 071 Happy 14th Birthday Marie!!! Hope you had a great day today and this past weekend when we celebrated your day. This year instead of a party you decided you wanted to just go to the mall and go shopping. We spent 1.5 hours in one store, Forever 21, but it was fun nonetheless. Daddy and McKenzie couldn’t take the fun of shopping so they walked the mall while your sisters and I shopped. This year your sister’s spoiled you and picked out cute little gifts when you were not looking.

Madison picked out a cute ring that you had showed her online. The funny part of the night was when you got the ring stuck on your finger right before cheer practice, whew, we got it off with a little bit of elbow grease.

Mikayla chose some snazzy earrings that are right up your alley and hers for that matter.  Be aware that she will be trying to wear them in the next few years… you two have similar styles.

Montana spent her hard earned money on a cute little tote bag for you. She picked it out and knew just what she wanted to get you when we got into the store. It’s a perfect little bag for you to use for cheer practice too.  I love how she wrapped it all by herself in the Halloween theme bag… too cute!

McKenzie really enjoyed spending time with you today and she really loved the cupcakes.

JgtntoXKW28JDaddy and I spoiled you big time this year, but you deserve it.  You asked for an iPhone and will get one when the iPhone 5 is released. You have had your current cell phone for over 4 years, so it’s time to upgrade. I just hope that Daddy spoils me so on my birthday…after all who are you going to have facetime conversations with if I don’t have an iPhone too (hint, hint) :-)

Love you always Miss R. Marie!!!
