Fourteen

Happy Birthday to our Nicole! She turned fourteen last week and it's so fun to watch her as she walks that fine line between childhood and adulthood. It's not uncommon to see her outside digging in the dirt with her siblings, only to witness, a short time later, her quick-change artistry with make-up and curls and accessories galore as she readies herself for an evening with friends.
She has a babysitting job this summer that she doesn't exactly love, but it's helping to pay for hay in the fall so she fulfills her responsibility with only a little bit of complaint.
She's a lot of fun and loves to remind me often that she's only got a couple of inches to go before I'm the shorty of the two of us. I've started buying higher heels.

I'm so proud of her and so very happy to be her mom. 
We love, love, LOVE her!!!
