Fourteen & Fabulous

We wanted to make the day special for Abby when she turned 14 on Friday, May 13th. Since Abby was scheduled to be in a track meet after school that day and her little sister, Kippy, was in a performance of Wizard of Oz that evening, we didn't have much time to devote to celebrating Abby's birthday.
Steve and I decided to surprise her during her lunch hour at Kennedy Secondary school with a balloon bouquet tied to Starbursts and serenaded her. She insisted that she wasn't embarrassed, but her red face told a slightly different story.

That evening we took her out to supper at Cafe 116, where Grandma Rose was able to join us and enjoyed a special red velvet birthday cake made by Aunt Claire after Kippy's Wizard of Oz play.
The cake with cream cheese frosting was decorated with a saxophone and it was delicious.

Can't believe my little girl is a young woman now! {sniff, sniff}
Hope your birthday was as wonderful as YOU, Abby Rose!!
