Alex's 13th Birthday

February 15th was Alex's 13th birthday. I can't believe my baby is 13. It seems like just last week when we brought her home from the hospital. Alex is really a blessing. She is beautiful and loving and just about the best kid anybody could ask for. I am so thankful to God for giving her to me to be my daughter.

For her birthday this year, Alex wanted to go to Springfield. We took Alex's friend, Amanda, and met up with Charity when we got there. The main reason Alex wanted to go to Springfield was THIS . . . . .

She wanted to go to PFI Western Wear to get these Ariat boots. These are the first pair she tried on and she LOVED them. I must say she looks pretty sharp in them -- a real FARM GIRL!!!!!

After leaving PFI we headed to the mall for a little bit of shopping, then on to Bass Pro.

Alex did a little target shooting in Bass Pro and she did a fantastic job. She is a natural marksman, or should I say marksWOMAN!!!

Then after a full day of shopping, well, us girls were HUNGRY. We had Alex's birthday dinner at Nakato Japanese Steakhouse. If you haven't eaten at Nakato, we would HIGHLY recommend it. The food is delicious and its very COOL to have the chef prepare your food right in front of you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALEX!!!!!! We love you more than you will know until you have your own daughter someday. I love you! Mom


  1. cute boots! looks like she had a great birthday :)

    Happy Birthday!!!


    The pics of the boots or the shooting range don't surprise me a bit.

    Just seems like yesterday you were just a sassy little girl that Aunt Krista couldn't keep a ponytail or hair clip on. Haha.

    It's been fun to see you grow up.
    Ha now you text more than I do.
