I spent a week celebrating my 14th birthday. Its become a tradition but it didn’t feel like it always in the previous years. it may be because I’m getting older and have a more busy schedule then I’ve had in the last few years. idk.
The tradition is that everyday for a week you receive a present every morning until you actual birthday. That wasn’t the case for me this year. Cuz my presents are getting more expensive than they were in previous years. I got Cookie Monster PJ’s from my baby brother Daniel, Words with Friends (the board game) from Zachary, a shopping spree from my grandparents (The Campos’), money to go shopping from my other grandparents (The Jones’), an adorable layering top from my mom, my guitar finally fixed, a starter photography DVD/book set, art supplies, books, necklaces, from my dad and a guitar stand from my bestie. Finally, in a way a trip to San Antonio to see my great-grandparents and a weekend at Sea World!

I found out Sesame Street has taken over Sea World kinda. I got to meet Cookie Monster!!! Omg!!!! I was soo excited!! I even got the pictures to prove it. I had a blast! We used up our phone batteries like crazy. I’m really glad we got go to San Antonio because I haven’t seen my great grandparents in sooooo long. Really its been about three years. My birthday was on Easter this year. It happens every 4 to 5 years. I think the first time it happened was when I was 4 and I accepted Christ into my life that night. So it was like a double birthday for me. I’m 10 Spiritually, but 14 years old.
How do you celebrate your birthday? When did you accept Christ? What did you do for Easter?
