Teen Spirit

This has been such an incredibly busy month for me and I'm very behind on a number of blog entries.  I'm going to try to catch up in the next few days because I just love the month of October and I definitely want to record the many fun activities, family stuff and the beautiful colors of fall.  AND, of course, it's Miss Hayley's birthday month!  I can't believe Wes and I are now the parents of a cell phone carrying, facebookin', boy-crazy teenager!  It's been a fun ride so far and hopefully the road won't get too awfully bumpy in the coming years (yeah, sure, right....)!  Anyway, we love you Miss Hay and we look forward to continuing to watch you grow into a beautiful young lady!
According to Hayley her thirteenth birthday party was THE BOMB!  Thirteen crazy (and LOUD) girls came over for a slumber party to help Hayley celebrate her special day.   I have to say that I can't post the majority of photos that I captured because the young ladies went crazy pantsing each other and then they didn't feel the need to put their pants back on.   I couldn't believe how comfortable they all were running around in their underwear in front of me!
I got them to hold still for 20 seconds while a took a group shot.  About half of the group were kids Hayley has grown up with since Kindergarten.  The other half were new friends that she's made since starting middle school.  It's been fun to watch her social circle expanding. 
There was lots o' sugar to be had... hey, just had to share my new product find.  These cupcake papers are awesome!  They are made by Reynolds (the aluminum foil people) and I got them at Fred Meyer.  The oils from the cake batter do not wash out the colors... they stay vibrant and gorgeous.  They had beautiful patterns too!

Did I mention how LOUD they were?
