Happy 13th Birthday... My Favorite Teenager, Ashlee!

This past February 24th we experienced our first teenager birth in the Higgins household.  Ashlee turned 13!!! 

Celebrating with her closest friends, she decided to have a slumber party that went into a day of swimming at the indoor pool in Angleton. We ordered pizza, ate strawberry cake and opened presents. The biggest box was from her bestie Tori. After much effort she opened it to find a huge teddy bear dressed up in summer swimming gear! 

Ashlee's favorite flavor is strawberry so I made her a strawberry birthday cake and threw in a cup of mini chocolate chips. It was a hit!  Make a wish!

Being born in February, Ashlee has never been able to have a pool party.  The weather is always too cold, but not this time.  It didn't matter how cold it was outside because the Angleton Rec Center has the best indoor pool, with a lazy river, hot tub, and a curly slide. It even has a play area for toddlers complete with a beach, toys and a baby slide.

Ashlee and I have been through a lot in the past 13 years and I am so proud of who she has become.  She is a smart, sensitive, compassionate, Christian young lady... full of life.  I love being her Mom!
