That's Kati in the picture above with her crazy pink bangs. She did it herself. She highlighted my hair, too, which you can see here
Every year on my daughters' birhtdays I take them out of school and we have a 'it's all about you' day. They get to choose whether they want to stay home and mess around, go shopping, head to the movies, whatever. It's their choice. Today, Kati's chosen the mall. She's a 16 yr. old girl, what do you expect? LOL
But it got me to thinking. Are we the only ones who do this? Their friends get jealous that the girls get to play hooky on their birthdays, but I figure why not? Heck, as long as the grades are good then one day off isn't going to ruin anyones lives. We started this back in kindergarten and it's become a tradition. I think it'll be one of those things the girls will look back on and smile.
So tell me, what are your birthday traditions?
In OTHER news! I got the best review yesterday from the wonderful Whipped Cream Reviews for Tempting Grace.
"The story is excellently written, with characters that are both memorable and endearing."
