Sweet Sixteen

I was trying to remember recently what my sixteenth birthday was like and it must have been uneventful.  I can not remember it at all.  My oldest daughter Sara just celebrated her day with a big party at our house with a band and a cake that cost more than my wedding cake.  As this party and cake was her gift from me I actually did not mind spending the extra on it.  As birthday parties go, I think it was a big hit.

I should say that we had only just moved into the house a whole week before and getting it ready to host a party was just about my undoing.  But with Marks help we managed to pull it off 
We only have 5 more to get through their sixteenth.  I think we can do it.  Poor Shea, his sixteenth birthday was the week before hers and he didn’t get a big sweet sixteen.  Boys are so much easier than girls.

I’m going to start offering weekend trips with Mom instead of a party.  I think it will be a lot less work for me!
