Almost 13

Carolynn will be 13 this Tuesday. For her birthday, she wants everything. Mostly she wants some book and some makeup. I got the make up. David is hunting down the book. I don't even know what it was. She also wants some collectible Barbies.

To celebrate the big day, we took her to Marcelino's Mexican restaurant. Our family has been celebrating birthdays there for many years. I celebrated my 13th birthday there myself. My sister did and I think my cousin Alyssa did too. Anyways, we took Carolynn there today for brunch. They have a great brunch buffet. The staff sang happy birthday to her. On Tuesday, her actual birthday, she has school and Catherine has a softball game. We might get pizza after. David should be back then.

I know I haven't been writing as much lately, but I have been working a lot of hours and, with David gone, I have more to do. David usually takes care of the dishes and the laundry. He also helps cart the kids around when I am sleeping. Catherine has softball, Carolynn has band. Both are going on field trips soon. I had to do the shopping and get the bills taken care of.

We went to my brother's house for Easter and I took a lot of pictures, but I forgot to upload them into the computer and then I lent my camera to David to take on his trip. So I will be sure and share those when he returns my camera.

Okay, that is all for now. I have a couple of short days off later this week, so I will try and do some cool stuff for you loyal fans.


  1. THat's neat that there is a sort of birthday tradition of going to the Mexican place. Happy Birthday Carolynn!

  2. We had birthdays at our house this week, too. One grandson is now 10 and the other is 5. No more babies around here. I love that you celebrated your daughter's 13th at the same place where you celebrated yours.

  3. Happy 13th Carolynn!! Don't wear the makeup like a clown like my soon to be 13 year old does, heheh. ;)

  4. Sorry I'm so very behind but I still send a big HAPPY 13TH BIRTHDAY out to Carolyn.
