She never ceases to amaze me.

This is my daughter H, also known as hormonal teenager or crazy beautiful H. Even sometimes I refer to her as brat, it just depends on my mood and her mood. Mostly her mood because she is the hormonal teenager in the house.

This morning I made a carrot cake to celebrate Superdad's and H's birthday with help from the babies. I mean, I made the cake while Lil O and Baby M kept distracting me in the kitchen and trying to steal the homemade cream cheese icing. I have the best carrot cake recipe that I've been using for years. Every one says they have the best recipe but in all honesty the recipe for all carrot cakes are basically the same. Sorry guys no top secret recipe passed down from generation to generation no matter what you may believe. Here's the best recipe for carrot cake that a friend shared with me several years ago and it's the only one I use.

Here are a few random pictures from this afternoon.

My beautiful amazing daughter H.

Someone call the fire department.

I'd also like to congratulate H for finishing her junior year in high school last week.  *Bragging rights!!!*  She passed her pre-cal exam with an A ! ! ! !  We are all so proud of her and we know that next year she will have no problem getting in the college of her choice!  My baby has one more year of high school left before she goes to college.  WOW.

I'm also so proud of B2 for finishing 7th grade!  Just one more year left of middle school then off to high school he goes.  He ended the year with all A's and B's, like usual!

I'm so proud of you both!

Okay, I'm going to go cry now.
