Sweet 16

Happy Wednesday . It is hard to believe it is the last day of April. The months are flying by. Spring is definitely here which makes me very happy but the last few days have been very windy though.
Emilia turned 16 on April 2nd. Where did the time go? She will always be my baby.
I was having a hard time coming up with a card to make for her. After giving it some thought I decided I wanted to have a chalkboard card made for her documenting all of the things she loves since this is a an extra special year. I was able to find this seller on Etsy who created the layout for me and then I made it into a card.I loved how it came out and everyone else did too especially Emilia.
 Emilia is definitely a girly girl so I hired a professional stylist  to come and do her hair and makeup. She did a great job and Emilia really enjoyed it. 
Later that night we had an Italian dinner delivered from Magino's a popular Italian restaurant in Downtown Denver. The cake was made by a local Cake Decorator here in Denver. Johns Deserts. She wanted a Tiramisu Cake and he made it into shape of a purse. He did a great job.Her presents this year were mainly fashion related. Her favorite store now is Forever 21. She got some books and movies too. Rich even surprised her with a special amethyst necklace.  Below is a collage documenting most of the day.

Overall she had a great day and a sweet 16 that she will always remember.
She also got her drivers permit on April 21st along with her cousin.  We were going go right after her birthday but my sister and niece got sick so we had to wait until then. The DMV was hell but we made it though it in less then 2 hours and they both passed their tests so we have 2 new drivers in the family now. Emilia has gone out a few times so far.  Rich is the one that is teaching her. I just ride in the back seat with my eyes closed most of the time.:) She is doing well though just a little heavy on the gas. Unfortunately my sister was still sick and shared the crud she had with us so we are sick now. Emilia has it worse than us though. Hopefully she will be back to driving again soon.

This month instead starting a new party theme I added on to an existing ones. I had a request for a door sign and a 12 month photo banner to go with my farm theme. This is what I came up with.

That's all for now. I will be back next month with more to share then.
