Surprise! and Winning!!

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments, emails, and facebook comments regarding Maris' birthday.
She was so tickled with all the love!
It's always been so tough to plan her parties in the summer because her friends are always out of town. 
But, it was her 16th !! So I was going to try. Sure enough, a huge group were on a mission trip.
But, I was able to find a handful who were in town and so the surprise was planned for Sunday night at
her favorite place.     

Claymates. A great paint-your-own-pottery studio in Dillsboro.

They had the boards all ready for her!

Not only can you paint pottery, but they also offer glass fusing, candlemaking and t-shirt printing.

Maris has lots of nicknames. I had enough space on 1 of her cakes to include 3 of them:
marinater {thanks to her friend Ally}, mare-bare {family}, and spark plug {the radio announcers
at the bb games call her this-because she brings such a spark to her team}

She was gifted many sweet, thoughtful presents and was super excited to get a huge
make-up kit  {nobody tell her daddy!}

And of course, Taylor had to share the Justin Bieber love.

{I caught Sarah checking him out}

She has always wanted a phone in her room. So, she thought Robert's 'vintage' gift was hilarious.

Pretty appropriate, right?! 

With the kazillion things she is involved in, it made sense that we give her a new {old} car.
She was over the moon with her Acura.

Everyone posed with "White Beauty".

In honor of all her family in the mid-west...
The front of White Beauty got a little pink action and some bling thanks to pearly pink nail
 polish and 'diamond' screws.

It was such a fun party and I loved celebrating it with her great friends.


The night of Maris' birthday was the final game of our District 5, 13 yr old All-Star Championship. 
Guess who was victorious.

This was the banner taking a victory lap with some very happy ball players.

My dad was there {he was a college pitcher} and he was able to set the umpire
straight on more than a few {bad} calls. You go, dad!

Jack's team is now headed to the State Championship next week!


Are you super tired of posts about my kiddos? Sorry..there will be design posts soon,
I promise.
