Ashley's 16th Birthday Party

This year for Ashley's 16th birthday, we wanted to do something different and fun. We started at 9 am, got all the girls in their shirts and headed off for Mt. Vernon Inn. We had had a great lunch, and were waited on by colonial waitressess. We then split into 2 teams, the Daffodils and the Daisies! We had a scavenger hunt, through the gift shops, searching for various clues. The Daisies won that hunt! We then went to Old Town Alexandria, and did a scavenger hunt looking for clues from the lives of John Carlyle and George Washington. The Daffodils won that hunt. All the girls received Starbuck gift cards as their prize. We then went for Smoothies, and shopping at Pentagon City Mall. After shopping, we got pizza and headed to Theodore Roosevelt Island for a picnic pizza. The girls had fun posing for pictures, and playing hide and seek. To finish off the day, we went to The Melting Pot for dessert. I had made a topsy turvy cake for Ashley's birthday, but the girls were to stuffed to touch it! All in all it was a Great Day! Ashley and her topsy turvy cake!

Carlie's Room Make-over

Our youngest daughter has decided the days of pink and Tinkerbell have come and gone! She informed us that since she will be in middle-school next year, she should have a room that reflects this age.
Good-bye Pink and Frilly
Good-bye Fairy net
Hello Blue and Green!
The Wall of awards!

Tim's childhood dresser, that has seen many different colors over the years!

The blue on the wall is really fabulous!
It looks better in real life!

Doesn't this picture fit in so well with the color

Tha hanging letters, that injured my finger!
How could the hammer mistake my finger for a nail?!

Carlie loves her new space!!

Happy Valentines

Look what showed up at our door yesterday!
We were so surprised that the man of the house would send yummy treats to all his girls! He had even done this while out of town on travel!

Since he was coming home that evening, we only ate the box of chocolate strawberries, and saved the boquet for him to see!

It was de-lish.............
