Sweet 16 - PHOTO BLOG

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I don't have much time, but I really want to share these pictures from Em's sweet 16!
Here is the hall...

Emily and mom said you can see how much we look alike in this one...

My brother and I...

Again, but this time with our mom too!

Here is Chad wearing the props for the photo backdrop Emily made...

And here is that backdrop she made...

A bunch of 15 and 16 year olds and they wanted to play musical chairs!

Hubby and my brother...

Em and her Uncle Gary...

The cupid shuffle...

The guy in that bright silver shirt is my "stepfather'. He tried to embarrass Emily (the theme was diamonds and denim), but it didn't work! Her and her friends loved it! LOL!

The birthday girl having a great time...

Blowing out her candles...

This was Carly, partying it up...

And here is Preston, waiting on the cake!

Alright - there are so many more, but I have to call it quits somewhere, right? You all can get a good idea of the party from these. Emily said it was the best birthday party EVER. She really enjoyed herself, as did everyone that came. It was a blast. I can't believe my little girl is 16 now! Chad's next...he'll be 12 in 2 1/2 weeks!

Take care everyone! I'll be in touch more soon. Mom is here, so we are visiting, and I'm also using her extra hands to get caught up on laundry and other housework. Also, back to school today. Having to read 3 chapters today made me really sleepy! But it's done, as is my homework for the week!

Talk to you all more real soon!

    AWE!!!! She looked amazing and I'm SO glad that it all came out great. We will be looking at places in the next month or so for next May. I love the picture of the two of you and yes your mom is right that you both do look so much alike. I love that my daughter looks like me!
How is school going? I'm in the last few days of this class and MAN am I glad it's almost over. I'm also really glad that I am taking the rest of this year for myself and not going back. I think that I will have only a few months worth of paying of my loans before I head back for more. LOL

    We definitely got the picture that Emily had a FUNTastic sweet 16 Party.
Thanks so much for posting them. Your Mom is so right you and Emily do look alike, especially in profile. Carly looked all partied out. Pictures are great, let Emily make her own album. She will treasure it I am sure.

You have given Emily a wonderful memory emoticon emoticon emoticon job.Pat in Maine, emoticon emoticon
