Happy Birthday Ruslana!

Ruslana turned 14 on September 14!!  Can you believe it?! We sure can't!

To kick off the celebration after school, she got her hair cut!

Here's a before and after shot, I think it looks great! 
Then we had a dinner of her choice (death bowls...don't ask!), cake and ice cream, and opened presents!

Trying out one of her presents--a new backpack

Then on the weekend we took her to John's Incredible Pizza with some friends:

 Everyone had a lot of fun, including the littlest members of the crew!

And because she's such a star, she had a little family gathering a few days later!

We love our 14 year old so much and are thankful to have family and friends to celebrate how special she is!


  1. I have to tell you that I still love reading your posts. It's so wonderful to see Ruslana growing up. It's been like watching a miracle unfold. Thank you for sharing your journey.

  2. Hi Ruth! Thank you for your sweet comment. I am going to try to do some catching up and work on some new posts. Stay tuned!
