Sweet 16 And Tubing....

Sweet Sixteen...a Passage. A step towards adulthood...so much to look forward to. The world is out there and waiting and it is an exciting time and.... for old Grandma, or Mo as I am called, a time for extra prayers as she takes baby steps to growing up....I took care of her for the first 2 1/2 years of her life and what a special time in my life it was....she is a gifted singer that performs, a high honor roll student. Even tho she is a Sophmore, the paper she wrote for her Model UN class earned her a spot with the upper classmen to go to Harvard later this month to debate with other high school students from all over our country. Next year, a trip to China with the same team...

Our Birthday Girl with her friends for a day of tubing to celebrate...Miss Allie in the center...Where did the years go? She is 16 today! Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

The whole gang..Mom is taking the picture and Dad and two little sisters and brother are in the front....

Ready...Set...Go....

Our Miss Lilly pushing her tube back up the hill....that would be one looong climb back to the top...

The Hill...doesn't it look like fun? I know I would love to go sliding with them...

Allie's Mom, our NY daughter, with sisters Lilly and Hannah...

I bet they drank a lot of hot chocolate at the lodge...don't you? It looks c-o-l-d!

Warm Fuzzy Hugs,
