Happy Birthday to Ashley!

I'm finally getting around to blogging...again.  I don't know why I keep taking these bloggy breaks so often, but it is what it is! 
Ashley's birthday was last month and for the FIRST time she didn't get to come home to celebrate it here:( 
I can't believe this little girl...
is so grown up now!
The Sunday after her birthday we decided to meet her and Colby  halfway between here and OKC.  We were tired of the usual meeting spot so we decided on a new restaurant to eat at this time-Mazzio's!  
You're NEVER too old to get a Disney princess birthday card!
For YEARS, Ashley has requested my brownie chocolate chip cheesecake as her birthday cake, so I got it made on Saturday.  It was so hard to stay out of it until Ashley got the first slice!
I have to admit, that it's one of my best cheesecake recipes!  Also, you're never too old to wear a birthday crown either.
We ate and visited for a bit, until we got tired of the looks we were getting from the staff at Mazzio's.  They needed our area for a party that was coming soon so we left and visited a while longer outside the restaurant.
These kids are so precious to me!  I can't hardly stand that they've grown up, overnight it seems, into these wonderful adults. Well, I AM glad they've grown up to be wonderful adults which is not what that last statement sounded like! haha
We enjoyed our short time together but soon it was time for everyone to leave to get back in time for Sunday night church.
Happy 27th Birthday, Dear Ashley!

  1. Those toddler photos of her are so cute. I can't imagine my daughter turning 27, but I know it will come too fast!
