Anyway, each month she and her friends (a.k.a. class) have been watching specific Disney movies, complete with a theme! Last month we did Under the Sea with "The Little Mermaid" and "Finding Nemo".
This month we planned on an outdoor, campy theme with "Pocahantas" and "Brother Bear".
What Jessica didn't know, was that this was not JUST a Disney Movie Night!!! It was a surprise 16th birthday party for her!!! I coordinated a way to get her out of the house for a few hours so that we could set up and had everyone surprise her when she got home. If you were to ask her, she'd tell you that she had it figured out.....but the look on her face showed me that there was some element of surprise!!!
We had so many amazing foods to eat - it was ridiculous!!! My friend, Rachael, made this beautiful cake that Jessica had fallen in love with about a year or so ago. We had a S'mores bar complete with Nutella AND Reeses' cups. S'mores cookies (that Jessica made), pulled pork cheese fries and so much more!
To Jessica.......I know that your birthday is two weeks away, but I'm telling you, every day is a celebration with you!!! From the moment that you were born, you have been blowing me away with the kind of young lady you are becoming!! I know and have seen the big plans that God has for you and I am so impressed with the way that you willingly fall into His arms and trust Him with your life!! I pray that He will be your guide no matter where you find yourself and that you will continue to pursue Him in all that you do and in all that you become!!! Daddy and I love you more than we could ever express!!!!
This is one of three birthdays that we will be celebrating over the next week and a half!!! Let the cake eating commence!!!!!!
