on her birthday Sophia & I did a little chalking in the driveway to welcome her sister home from school & grammy mary got to come over to help us celebrate her big day…

later we were off to meme & papa’s for cupcakes & birthday wishes…

so funny, Sophia was getting pretty impatient. I imagine in her head she was saying “can we just eat these cupcakes already!!!!!!!”

opening her gifts…

her birthday was on a Wednesday, then on Friday when she got home she had one more gift waiting for her.

Taylor Swift tickets. oh my gosh, she lost her mind. she cried…

after the excitement of the T. Swizzle tickets we had the big bowling party to get ready for…

I got a lot of photos of us bowling, none of them too great, so of course I just made them into a video & just like that, they are amazing!! ha. but seriously, we had such a great time!!!

this post took me forever to put together & there is so much more I can say about all of it but let me just say this… I love my kids’ birthdays. I just want to make them special for them.

happy 16 Mikayla. you are so very special…
