my little girl turns 15 years old today. crazy, just crazy. last night, our family celebrated with her (she’s having a party with friends this weekend), by going on a little progressive dinner. we started at pick-up stix for a favorite of hers as our appetizer: cream cheese wontons. then we drove over to sammy’s woodfired pizzas, where she had a greek salad (i had a thai chicken pizza). then we moved on to bj’s brewpub, for their infamous pazookie (a partially baked cookie in a deep-dish pan, with ice cream on top). liesl and i split a white chocolate macadamia, and max and jeannie had chocolate chunk.
liesl is saving money toward a laptop (she has to pay for 1/2), so most of her gifts, including ours to her, was money for that. but max remembered that she’d recently said she wants a snake, so gave her money for that, as well as a little wooden snake hideout thingy.
she’s a great kid. fun, loving, creative. i’m very proud of her (and a little scared about how fast she’s growing up).
