We had a nice birthday together Wednesday including lunch at Jason's and dessert at Nothing Bundt cakes thanks to their birthday club coupons! We even did a little shopping together afterwards.
Now it's time for Mariana to have her own celebration with friends! She wanted to start with a game of bowling and then go home for more games, dinner, cake, movies and more fun. It was a busy weekend in town, so some friends could only make it to certain parts of the party...
She wanted to make and decorate her own cake. Allia offered to help (especially since she got some cool baking supplies for her birthday), and I enjoyed watching them work together happily. :)
Mariana is so joyful, faithful, helpful and caring. What a precious girl. We are so thankful for her and happy to see what God has in store for her this next year!

Allia planned a very nice party. The girls started at U Paint It, came home for an elaborate taco/tex mex dinner, brownies and ice cream sundaes, went ice skating, then slept over. We had 12 friends total, but 2 left after ice skating. So that made 11 teenagers (including Allia) sleeping in our living room!

Sebastian had his surgery Tuesday morning. We had to check in an hour before, and they gave him a neat little care package with some monster trucks and a book. So we had some nice play/reading time before.
All prepped and waiting for his turn in the OR
In recovery...he was either sleeping or crying, poor buddy
He was much more comfortable once we got home. He was hesitant to eat and drink at first, but we kept at it, and finally he started eating popsicles. He really started to perk up after that.
