Rachel turned 13 on Saturday. She was a good sport, and got up early to celebrate before the 3 high-schoolers headed off to their first band competition. She followed the string to find her gifts.She found 3 Warrior Books, cake cookbook, fondant decorating supplies, a tiny little spatula from Kevin, a tiny little painting on a tiny little easel by Jennifer, and a nap sack. She got a Betta fish from Jess & Mel - Rachel named him Lorenzo.She also recieved a bonsai tree. (Can you tell that Rachel loves little miniature things?) We had baked french toast for breakfast. Rachel and I spent the day at the Band Competition, taking a break to go out to Linner with Dad, and Jennifer at Red Robin. Later that night her friends surprised her with warm chocolate chip cookies. She also spent some time with her buddy Angela that evening.
Sunday we had her favorite dinner: Spaghetti, and she made her own birthday cake: chocolate with cream cheese frosting and homemade fondant. It was fun to have the Websters join us- we also celebrated Wendy's birthday.Here we are making some music.I believe Rachel had a good birthday! WE LOVE YOU RACHEL!
