Happy Birthday, Random.Cara

Today, my sweet Cara turns 14....it is hard to believe.

Cammie, she is beautiful. 14 wow. She looks like you so much. I bet if you compared pictures of you at that age, it would be hard to distinquish which is which. The page is beautiful.

Oh, Carolyn -- Cara is GORGEOUS (just like her mama) and from the words you've chosen to describe her, she's beautiful on the inside, too. How does she feel about slightly younger men? Truman will be 14 in October. Perhaps we need to arrange a marriage for the distant future. That way, they can just skip all that dating and angst over the next several years and focus on their studies and sports. Sound good? Let's discuss when we meet up in July... ;)

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Cara! Love, your potential MIL :)

My oldest turned 13 on the 30th!! Happy belated b-day to Cara!! (I know about the pictures~~crossing my fingers that I got at least ONE decent one from yesterday!)

I'm really inspired by your return to scrapbooking. I REALLY need to get over my "but I haven't touched it in 10 years!" thinking mode and just DO IT!
