17? Seriously ... 17????

Am I really old enough to have a 17 year old? UGH! :)

Riley turned 17 today! Happy Birthday Riley!

Riley is one of those kids who make being a parent a breeze [excluding those totally teenage moments, which every kid can have!]:). She is a joy to parent, a joy to be around, a wonderful daughter, sister, grand-daughter, niece, cousin, friend, and babysitter. :) She has a great relationship with God, and is not afraid to stand up as a Christian in school, family gatherings, or parties. :)

Riley, my dear... YOU ROCK! Keep it up!



She opted for rootbeer floats over cake this year. :)

She is just so pretty. She gets that from me! LOL

She is trying to be cool. :) Hhhmmmm....


  1. Happy birthday sweet girl--you sure do get your gorgeous looks from your mama :)

    I hope you had a stunning day. Don't even let your light for Jesus burn out!

  2. I sent Riley an email yesterday telling her she is making ME feel very old. I was 13 when she was born!!!!! She is fantastic. I wish we lived closer to each other so I had a regular babysitter!

  3. Riley is AMAZING,FANTASTIC,GORGEOUS,SMART,FUNNY,SWEET - every grandparent's pride and joy. (what do you think - too sappy Riley?)
    Let's just say "you rock!!!"
    Love you!
