Where did the years go???

Kaylea, Rubea, Emilea, Ethan, Owen, Jackson, Rylea, Johnathan
Emilea

She is a bit embarrassed while they are singing for her at Olive G@rden....Emilea and Rubea

My *baby* turned 15 today!! Poor girl... what a day to have your birthday! She is such a beautiful young lady! She loves, loves, loves her siblings, especially Rubea. (she traveled with me to China to get Rubea)  She loves her family and friends. She loves Jesus. She loves life!! She loves school and is an *A* student!!! She enjoys reading, music & her guitars. She is over the moon excited about getting her driver's permit, getting a job at Sea*World and going to Camp E*lectric this summer!! She chose Olive G@rden for dinner and had Cheesec@ke F@ctory for her b-day cake!!  What a very full day we had!  Taxes are filed, cake is eaten, gifts are opened and everyone is ASLEEP!!!!

Enjoy the pictures!!

Love,
Carla

I think there is nothing better than a sweet, God loving teenage girl. It is very difficult when our world is saying me me me and you have to be perfect in worldly ways. You should be really proud of your girl!!!

15 on the 15th!! That won't happen again for her!

Happy 15th!!! Too cool that she is going to Camp Electric! I looked into that for Caleb and we're thinking next year. Has she been before? I'd love to hear what she thinks!

Happy Birthday to your sweet girl! I have been a very bad blogger friend. Your Easter picture was beautiful- thank you for thinking of me. I am home schooling my 5th grader- let's just say he's not a conventional learner and we were having to pay private school tuition for not a whole lot of learning! I have that itch to go back to China for another little girl-a Chinese sister for Cate. I am searching for that little face, but with the changes and shared lists, it isn't so easy. Greg hasn't said yes either. Just praying for some guidance here! Keep in touch! Love, Kim

Happy Birthday Emilea! It's fun to see our "babies" grow up, but kind of bittersweet, too, isn't it?! LOVE the pictures! Olive Garden and Cheesecake Factory?! It doesn't get much better than that!!

Love from the whole Hays gang!
