    • Thank you πŸ™‚
      No, no big celebration plans. Sara is making her a Birthday breakfast this morrning, and we’re going out to dinner tonight (Mel wants to go to CiCi’s Pizza), and she wanted to invite some friends over for Saturday afternoon.

    • Hahaha, thanks, Karen. Melissa is learning to drive in the shoebox (aka Greg’s car) so he’s the one having all the fun with driving lessons πŸ™‚

  4. Happy bithday to Melissa – I love that she is reading a BOOK – and not an ipad, pc or a smartphone πŸ˜‰ – my son only reads a book if he is FORCED to it (by a teacher!)

    • Thank you, Truels.
      She doesn’t have much of a choice and HAS to read “real” books, because she doesn’t have any kind of e-reader or smartphone πŸ˜‰

    aww, I think this is a perfect shot of her, totally captures her personality πŸ™‚ Did she get anything good for her bday? What is driving age? I thought it was 16, no? It’s 17 here. Happy birthday Mel!

    • Thanks, Doreen! πŸ™‚
      Driving age here is 16. She still has a few months to go until she can test for her license. There’s no rush if you ask me (and she doesn’t like driving all that much either!)
      She got some gift cards (amazon, iTunes, and HalfPrice Books), a Manga drawing book, a sketching & inking set (aka pens), a bookmark, and cash.

  8. I know that girl! **grin** That is the cutest picture. Tell her I said Happy Birthday. (Did she get any driving in on our back roads? The best place to learn to drive.)

    26. August, 2012 at 09:45

    • Thank you, Kathy, I’ll tell her πŸ™‚
      She didn’t get any driving practice because we had my car, which is a bit bigger than Greg’s. She’s learning in his car.

  9. Happy Birthday (a bit late)! That is a fabulous shot. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you very much, Robin. She happily accepts late Birthday wishes πŸ™‚

    • I know…can’t be, right? πŸ˜‰
      I think she had a pretty good Birthday. Sara made breakfast for her…no school yet…dinner at the restaurant of her choice AND frozen yogurt for dessert….presents she liked…and some friends over on Saturday afternoon to celebrate.
      Thanks, Dalia πŸ™‚
