Saturday morning, we all loaded the car back up and headed to Bryan/College Station. While Anthony and the kids visited Anthony's side of the family, my bff, Deyanira and I had some serious party planning going on. That night would be Sam's 16th birthday DANCE PARTY! The party was from 7-11pm at a local teen center. I can't even describe the craziness that went on while getting ready for this. At one point her car was nicely packed with all our party stuff and then...BAM, we had to put the balloons in! There was then total disarray of our goods all in order to get these balloons in without popping them! OH, let's add the extreme heat outside too! We did a great job because not one single balloon popped and nothing was broken! Once we decorated the teen center, we went to get dressed. Soon after the guests started to arrive. How crazy is it that I'm old enough to attend a birthday party for my best friend's son and ALL THE GUEST DROVE THEMSELVES!?!?!?! It was strange...no parents in sight. The only adults were the birthday boy's parents, his aunt and uncle (the uncle was the DJ), and myself. No other grown ups or even kids. Just Sam and his crew! After Anthony came to drop off Austin, he went back to Deyanira's house and stayed with all the little siblings. Thanks Ant! Austin and Sam! Austin was so excited about going to his first dance! Would you believe they played pin the tail on the donkey?! We had glow in the dark necklaces, beads, and sunglasses. And of course there was dancing...oh the dancing and the music!! Deyanira and I had a hard time not going out on the dance floor! I even recall a time when I had to stop her from going! HA! We tried hard to remain non embarrassing and remember that we ARE the parents!
I have to admit, I was a little nervous about Austin going. Would they include him? I worried for nothing! When I say that this was a great bunch of high schoolers, I mean it! Really, they had him in the mix the whole time. Showing him the latest dance moves was so touching! Who'd have thought they would be so good at the Cumbia?! This dance Sam ALLOWED us to do! I'm not even gonna tell you how giddy we got! HA! All that food! They hardly touched it! I thought teenagers ate a lot! Not this night! Too busy dancing!We did get most of them to eat some cake!The guests! Yes, Austin was in heaven with all of the girls! If you know Austin, you know how he is about GIRLS!!! Bart, Sam, and DeyaniraDeyanira and myself. Two mommas of 16 year old boys!
The party was a blast! I enjoyed spending time with my loved ones and helping (or as Bart and Anthony would say, BOSSing"!) with the party!
How am I not the one who's 16? Where has the time gone??? HA!

The charts below are hard to see, but do try to look at the growth! AMAZING! These start at age 10. The above is his weight and the below is his height.He now weighs 88lbs. Which is 0% in weight percentile.
He is 60.5 in. tall! Which is 1% in height percentile.
Who cares about the percentile...the main thing is that he has grown and looks like he will continue some!!!! And because of this growth, we needed to really increase his thyroid medication!
Way to "GROW" Austin!

First, she used it as a giant bed for her babies and animals.Then, she just played with her toys on top of it.
Now, she's "decorating" it. She started off with using pens. She's gone through four pens. They've all ran out of ink. She used markers for a little bit, but she realized crayons work best!Almost every inch of this box is colored and she said tomorrow she's "gettin' the stickers out!"It has been the BEST TOY EVER! Aren't the boxes always?! Ha! Thank you "boxy" for keeping Carli so occupied!
