My sweet girl!!!

My Lysie Rae (Melsya Rachel) as I call her, actually I have many names for her but this is my fave, turned 17 today!!! I can hardly believe how the days and years have flown by. SHE IS 17!!

So, for her birthday, my son and I showed up at my sisters, where Lysie watches her cousins, and SURPRISED HER!!! We had cake with candles and balloons!! She was woken by a wonderful serenade of  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! It made her day.....as this was to be the first birthday away from home!!! So we gathered up the kiddos, packed our lunch and the car and headed for the beach!! WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY!!!
Here are some picts of the day!!!

and the ocean taketh away

we toook WAY TOOO MANY PICTURES as usual!!!  but this should give you a brief over view...it was a red flag day...but they road the waves for a while....before they froze to death, while Sarah and I built our drip sand castle!!!
in all their glory
gotta love 'em

beautiful girl
girls just gotta have fun!!!


OH.....BY THE WAY.......don't forget about the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge going on!!! Pull our your Wendy Vecchi stamps and create away......and if you don't have any.......BE NOT CONCERNED.......check out her blog...get an idea of how she creates and HAVE FUN!!! I SURE DID!!
