so last night we celebrated maddog's 13th birthday!!! 13!!! it's unbelievable. she's friggin 13!
she chose PF Changs, always a winner, and had 2 of her friends along for the ride! the ride of teenage-dom! a good time was had by all, and they ended our chilly & drafty dinner with some
after changs, we headed back to the house for more cake (a mini) and presents!!! she received the sewing machine she asked for...of course!!! i was thrilled she wanted one!! among other treats, there were her Tom's shoes, some clothes and goodies from Grandma & Grandpa Anderson, clothes from us, and a carrying tote for her Janome! now, it's life from here on out...with a teenager! (dun dun dun...) she is the best teenager anyone could ever ask for...and a great pseudo-stepdaughter!
mr ethos, of course, was behind the camera the whole time, so there are no daddy/daughter pics...we'll have to fix that this weekend at her official birthday party! (for more birthday fun, please see mr ethos' blog)
