Sweet Caroline

Me and my sweet Caroline.

Opening her new watch. A gift from Dad and Mom

Twelve years ago today the world got a whole lot sweeter when our Caroline was born. It's hard to believe she's almost a teenager.
Caroline had a busy day of birthday celebrations starting with a special snack for all the kiddos at Bible study. Then she and Dad went to lunch for her first experience with Sushi. She loved it! Then Caroline, Maria and Dad went to Chuck E. Cheese to burn through some tokens. Finally, we had a wonderful time at dinner with our friends the Habenicht's and even Alex drove down from college to join us. (Zack had to work and missed out on the festivities) Caroline chose a menu of salmon, green bean and rice amandine, caesar salad and ice cream cake for dessert. Yummo!
Tomorrow is another big day for her. She's going to spend the day shadowing a friend at her new school. I will miss her and I'm sure Maria will too. Well, it's time for bed. I'm not used to getting her off to school so morning will come early.
Simply stated...Happy birthday sweet girl! I love you.
