Alisha turns 14 tomorrow!


This is my youngest daughter, Alisha Renee. She looks as if she has an attitude in this picture. Well, that's because she SO does. LOL Alisha hates having her picture taken. I can't figure out why, she's so darn pretty! What's not to love?? *grin*


Anyway, Alisha turns 14 tomorrow. My baby is growing up. It's scary as hell when I look at her and realize how fast time flies. She's nearly 5'9'' for crying out loud! It wasn't that long ago that she was tugging on my pants leg and wanting me to watch Barney with her. How is it possible that she could be in the 8th grade, playing the guitar and wearing make-up? Really?


Like I blogged about the other day at Fierce Romance when Kati turned 16, Alisha will be spending her birthday skipping school and hanging out with mom. She's asked to go to Pac Sun, she loves their t-shirts, and she wants Mexican for lunch. She also wants to hit up Best Buy and check out their X-Box games. Let's hope I get through the day without breaking the bank! LOL


To me this is truly one of the best parts about having kids though. Just spending time with them. Enjoying their company. Listening to them talk and being a part of their world. It fascinates me that Kati and Alisha could be SO different. From their looks to their personality, there are night and day. I wouldn't have it any other way either. I love their individuality. I've been so blessed to have two such wonderful daughters.


If you have a second wish Alisha a happy birthday because she'll be reading this blog later and probably getting pissed that I posted a picture of her. LOL

Happy 14th Bday Alisha...I totally get the not liking having your picture taken, as I hate mine taken as well. But for a totally different reason. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Anne Rainey said...

Jennifer--Thanks, lady! LOL, I can just see her rolling her eyes at me when she sees the blog!

Anne Rainey said...

Dianna--Thanks for the birthday wishes! You know, I've yet to meet a single girl/woman who DOES like having their pic taken. I'd personally rather be the one holding the camera. LOL

A little note--Alisha has been reading the comments and she's pretty tickled. She DID roll her eyes when she saw her pic on here though. LOL

To you to you to you, OLE'!

Sorry; couldn't resist. You said Mexican for lunch; here's the old Chi-Chi's b-day song:)

And my now-15-yr-old avoids the camera like the plague too. Enjoy your day with her!
