My Baby Girl Turned 13!

Last Friday my baby entered the land of "Teendom" Yep she is 13 and I have no idea where the time went... Wasn't it yesterday when she came home from the hospital weighing in at 5 lbs 2 oz? I have to say - that it has and is a complete joy to be her mom.. I call her my Sunshine baby because from the time she was a newborn to now - she has always had a happy and joyful disposition... She is my snuggle buddy... She is the kid that always wants to be by my side.. Whether it is a quick trip to the market or sitting on the couch watching our favorite shows together...

For her birthday weekend - We had some fun...

On Friday she missed school and we went to the movies and saw Just Go With It - It was great - we laughed a lot - Preview below

After the movies we went to Chili's for lunch..

After Lunch we headed to the mall so she could get a couple of outfits... Her new favorite store is Wet Seal.. She got two pair of size 0 super skinny low rider jeans (have I ever worn a ZERO?)... This was hard for this mama bear... She is growing up too fast...

We continued to celebrate her birthday on Sunday.. I surprised her and took her to Goofy's Kitchen - this is a restaurant in the Disneyland Hotel where the guests can interact with different Disney characters...

After our dining experience - we headed over to Disneyland.. It was a very cold day and because of the 3-day weekend and the winter break back east - Disneyland was unusually busy... We still went on a few rides.... Indiana Jones, Buzz Lightyear, Jungle Cruise, The Haunted Mansion, The train, It's a Small World and Pirates of the Caribbean... (I enjoy looking for Jack Sparrow) We did stand in line for the Matterhorn only for it to breakdown before we got on... Would have hated being stuck on the ride for over 45 minutes like some were... We were lucky....

The coolest part of the day was that my niece who is a performer at Disneyland and California Adventure was able to get us VIP seats for the Fantasmic Show... We felt like Very Important People... sitting in our chairs in our private seating area... (wish I knew how to work my camera better.... All in All my new teenager had a good celebration... So did I... Happy Birthday - Sunshine Girl!
