Chelsea's 15th Birthday


If April 19th was not special enough, this year it happened to fall on a late start day
for the high school.  It was quite the fun morning celebrating our lovely girl.




So, Chelsea invited 25 of the sweetest, most wonderful girls over for brunch  to help her celebrate turning 15.




And our other favorite girl came over to help.

Of course, Rudy was all in for celebrating. 









A lot of backpacks.
