we go together.....a post about bff's

this past weekend was full of encouragement & celebrations for a couple of the girls and their best friends
madison & her besties painted tshirts & wore pink to support & encourage her closest friend as her mommy endured her first surgery, all 10 hours , since being diagnosed with breast cancer. please note
even the cast, flips, painted nails, camis & hairbows are all pink
we love you jenny!!

on a much lighter note
i must share with you what savannah & her girlfriends did to celebrate one of the girls 16th birthday.
this surely wins the creativity award
& maybe an award for maybe a little over the top!
( can't wait to see what she whips up for my bday--wink!)

this involved months of planning , preparations & shopping

it all began with a typed "anonymous" letter being delivered to bday girl at school
followed by kidnapping & a scavenger hunt

here's the angels pre-kidnapping at birthday girl's home post hiding all her gifts

channeling their inner gangsta!

birthday girl cracking up as 2 of the angels take their task very seriously

savannah carrying in blindfolded bday girl
trying to continue to maintain all seriousness

birthday girls house was full of birthday gifts to be found via the elaborate scavenger hunt
the girls had bought her loads of gifts including a dress, shoes & jewelry for their evening event, which mind you is still a surprise
the angels have now dressed & left gangster wear behind

much horsing around continues

& lots of hugs
we're all about the hugs at 16 right?

realization & tears call for more hugs of gratitude

please note the friends are all in black & felt later that they may have looked a little too dreary while birthday girl sports her new ensemble
which is NOT black


sexy glamour shots

maybe a little much sexy glamour shots!

totally cute girls

girls just wanna have fun
& i'll give you one guess who the biggest ham of 'em all is...

so proud of you girls & how you love on & support your friends.

If there is ever a tomorrow when we are not together there is something you must always remember: you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think, but most important of all, even if we are apart, I'll always be with you.

You are raising some incredible girls there, Paige. I so wish I knew you in real life. I would ask you to be my mothering mentor:) Well, you are now anyway:)
Praying for mrs.jenny.

Paige what sweet and beautiful girls you have! I tried to raise my kids telling them that you have to be a friend to have friends! Don't know Mrs. Jenny but will say a prayer. My daughter's finance's momma is going through her own fight so if you will please lift her up too.

How sweet! I wanted to send you this link because I had remembered that you once posted about Matthew Mead (fell in love with all the Halloween goodies you posted about).

Anyway, I just did a blog for his new magazine and thought you'd like it!
