A "milestone" birthday for my daughter.

Happy Birthday to my amazing 23 year old daughter, Carrie!
Since Carrie was a little girl, her favorite number has been 23.
She has talked about her 23rd birthday for the past few years...
...so I'm calling this a milestone birthday for her.  :o)
The party at our house on Saturday night was so much fun, and ended
with Carrie and her two pets spending the night at our house.
:o) Dark photo of Marcus, but I love that he is patiently waiting
outside among the droopy balloons and leftover party fair. I
baby-sat for my two sweet grand-pets while Carrie slept in.
And tonight? Well, we'll celebrate with dinner out {Chinese food, per
the birthday girl's request}
and 23 individually wrapped gifts.

Hooray for Carrie's birthday!
I love this day.
And her.

Happy Birthday to Carrie! Sarah turns 21 the end of this month. And I'm doing 21 gifts - she needs kitchen stuff for her off-campus apartment for senior year.

I have been and wished her a very happy birthday :)

And I think 23 is a milestone birthday - I nearly didn't make it to mine!

Yay for daughters and milestone birthdays.

I know she's had a fabulous birthday if you've planned it. I smiled at the 23 gifts. I did that for Sarah when she turned 21--with 21 tags of course!

Happy Birthday Carrie! It sounds like a great fun party and I love the idea of 23 presents :) If it is a tradition, I bet it gets better each year :)
Congratulations to you too Deb, for carrying and caring for her, being able to say you are best friends... not many moms can say that...

Sounds like Carrie had a wonderful birthday - I've popped over and wished her already. What a cute idea to number all the gifts, did she have to open them in order? :) xx
