1-3 has arrived.....

Morgan had an out of town dance competition this weekend...it was her first...

She looked beautiful....

and she put up with  my antics even though she was VERY stressed...

Her team did really well.....

Won a few trophy's/award, they were super excited. The funny part? Their teacher Ms. Pearl standing in the back of the photo had just gone into labor a few minutes before this photo. She had a healthy baby girl. :)

Winners!!!!

We came home and raced around to plan a 13th surprise birthday party for Morgan....13!!


I came up with the idea of doing food stations for all of the kids...lucky for me my mom and aunt went to work and helped prepare all the food while I decorated...

I got lots of cute ideas from Pinterest of course...

Dan had taken her to buy new pointe shoes and to get her ears pierced a second time. They came in and she was shocked! It was so fun! I almost busted out crying.


My friend made this AMAZING gluten free/dairy free cake for us......she is so talented!

My two sweet girls...

My mom got Morgan a beautiful jewelry box and filled it with fun earrings etc....

She had been saving her money for an ipod touch so we surprised her and got her one....you only turn 13 once!!


Our friends and family helping Morgan celebrate....

Morgan you are an amazing kid! I LOVE this age. When people ask how old you are and wrinkle their noses because they find out you are a teenager I just smile. I love this age because I can see Gods great potential in your life. I love that you are questioning things and see what it looks like to stand on Gods promises. You love life and you have BIG dreams that you are working toward.

You love your sister, friends and family. You are excited to try things and learn new things. God is going to move mountains with you. Thank you for all the late night cuddles (even though your feet are like ice) and for reminding me to laugh at myself daily (because you and daddy pick on me) for seeking Gods peace about things and for being such a good friend to those around you.

You are a light. All I can say without getting to mushy because I know I will burst into tears is; when I met you 13 years ago you sent my heart on a whole new adventure. Before that day I had never known love so fierce, so unconditional (yes, even when you hit the terrible 3's) and so amazing as the day God thought enough of me to allow me and daddy the privilege to parent you. I love you my sweet girl!!
