VICTORIA IS 13 ! ! !

We gathered the other Sunday for Victoria's 13th birthday celebration. I had surgery the following two days and have been slow getting back to blogging...though I have been checking on on those I follow... Victoria didn't want a regular birthday cake but a cookie cake...
Victoria opening box from me with a couple of hoodie jackets in it. Aunt Becky looking on...
Mother, Great-granddaddy, and Cousin looking on...

Great-granddaddy always gives these two girls something Mother won't let them have. Victoria got a bottle of Pepsi. They also get a regular birthday gift from him and Great-grandma. Elizabeth usually gets chocolate kisses.
The birthday girl...Great-grandmonther cut in half on the side of this pic...
Cousin Jake cutting tape on yet another box inside a box...Great-granddaddy and Daddy look on as Victoria disposes of one of the previous boxes this box was in...this was how the Pepsi was wrapped. But I couldn't get the pictures to move in the proper order...
Sister Elizabeth enjoying bubble wrap...her birthday will be in December.
Reversible blanket Aunt Robyn and family gave her. They weren't there as they were at Trent Family Reunion at Peaks of Otter. In this pic you can see Great-grandmother and younger sister on either side of birthday girl...
She got a check, cash, jewelry, clothes and gift certificate...oh and the private bottle of Pepsi to stash away...
