Oh... to be 14!!!

This girls world revolves around hopefully {wink wink} getting a cell phone - her words "I am the only teenager at my school without a phone!"  Also, getting an official dance card to get into the stake dances - she can hardly wait for that to happen! Meanwhile, I just watch in awe remembering the exact same feelings as I was her age {minus the cell phone} I look at Caitlin and am amazed at what a beautiful and sweet girl she is turning out to be! It is exciting to see what the future holds for her and I am just so proud to be her mom!


Sooo...she has been hoping and praying for a cell phone! Bart has been teasing her relentlessly that it probably wouldn't be happening. She woke up this morning, we all ran downstairs to watch her open her presents. She was really sweet and genuinely liked what we got her AKA what she picked out!

 But, I could tell that she was bummed! Bart than came downstairs and handed her a slip of paper. He told her that she needed to call some boy with the initials JB - we all teased her and said it could be the Jonas Brothers or maybe Justin Bieber. She dialed the number to which she heard a voicemail of Justin Bieber AKA dad pretending to be the hip hop boy wishing her a very Happy Birthday and at the end of the message he said, "Oh and by the way, this number you called is your new number to your new cell phone" and than Bart pulled out her cell phone with a bow on top! 
Can you see the glistening in her eyes from crying from sheer joy!?

Caitlin totally stood there in shock and started to cry! It was pretty cute - that girl is so excited!!!

She has had a great day with banners from friends on the garage door, texts, facebook messages, presents from her grandparents and a special birthday dinner date with dad!
One of her favorite gifts - can you blame her? The kid is cute!
All in all, she had a great birthday! Better than the Limo surprise of last year - crazy how a cell phone can do that to a teenage girl!

What a cute post! OMG Caitlin...you finally have a cell phone!!! She is such a sweet girl--but that is what comes from great parents!! Oh-that is sooo funny that Bart called in a message trying to sound like JB...you should have had John do it---he did sort of the same thing to my niece inviting her to see the JB movie-ha ha!! She "almost" fell for it! <3 it!
