Happy birthday to Claire! Hard to believe we now have three teenage daughters in the house.
To celebrate, we took Claire out to lunch as usual. She chose Cubby’s again this year, and this year decided to bring her sister Katelyn along with Manina and me.
At lunch, we went through our standard questions like we did last year:
Cereal: Reese’s Puffs
Homemade dinner: tri-tip or Mac and cheese
After school activity: penny boarding or basketball
Friend: too many to choose
School subject: ceramics
Finish the sentence:
I wish… I could remember the answer that I thought about earlier today
I really like to wear… my Patagonia Synchilla
I would describe myself as… a crazy oddball duckhead
When I grow up… I will have changed the world for the better
I love it when… we go camping
My favorite memory is… either Hawaii or Disneyland
I really look up to… I’ll say my parents
The best thing about me is… that I don’t like to describe myself
I want to practice… my basketball skills
I want the world to know… that they shouldn’t leave their cars running unless they need it
My biggest thing I want to accomplish at age 13 is… make amends with my siblings
In the evening, Claire invited two of her friends Andie and Ruby to join her at a BYU baseball game.
We were lucky enough to have been given four VIP tickets, so Claire and her friends were able to eat all the popcorn, peanuts, sodas, candy bars, and brownies they could eat. Plus a catered dinner from Costa Vida! It was a cold evening, so we needed all those calories just to keep us warm.
In lieu of birthday gifts, Claire decided to redecorate her bedroom and she really did a good job putting everything together. Claire is a great girl and we’re sure glad she could have a great birthday!
