Happy birthday Eva. I'm having your James Blunt shirt made...it'll be shipped out soon, promise. Another 16 year old girl...is the world really ready for this?

You are a beautiful person, just like your Mom (& Dad). I'm sure you'll have a great day because you're surrounded by wonderful people there....all the best to you. Party hard (well, as a mother, not TOO hard).

(Barb, in so few words you can make me cry..."you're my favorite person to be with" & "all the important things I learned from you". Beautiful. No wonder your kid turned out to be so special!

Happy Birthday Eva!!! May you get what you wish for.

That's a really great post Barb, Eva is a lucky girl to have such amazing parents!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Eva says to thank you all for your kind wishes. She had a boffo birthday!

Al, I think more than a few wishes were granted.

Karen, I can't claim responsibility for that one. I stole it from Eva!

It was a dandy, John.

Berni, we had a little too much of all of those (although nobody is complaining).

I was wondering where she got that fine style sense from, Just A.

Yeah, we had our girls very close together, didn't we, Deb?
How sweet you are, you are making me all verklempft - until I remember about the James Blunt shirt!

The only thing better than your own seal, Beckeye, would be your own otter. Two of the them.

I get it from my kid, Mel! And there's no shortage of good moms around this blogosphere (looking at you).

We're the ones who are lucky to have her, Evelyne.

Happy birthday to the sublime Eva, who is remarkably like her splendid mother!

Kristen said...

happy birthday Eva, hope your day was great and hope you have a rockin weekend planned! My friends and i choose not to consider them our birthDAYS... we like to think of them as our birthWEEKENDS... or even entire birthWEEKS, but Eva, i think you deserve a birthMONTH!! You've got 30 more days to celebrate so make them great!! XOXO cant wait to see all of you this summer!!!

kristen said...

p.s... would you think i was crazy if i said about the pic of Eva with the crazy hair i saw a huge resemblance between her and my mom?!! they're both gorgeous so i guess it would make sense!!!

Beth said...

And how lucky she is to have you for a mom!

Toccata said...

Happy Birthday Eva! 16! Wow!!! You tell your mom she has to spoil you rotten. 16 is a big deal.

That cross legged kitty on the keyboard kills me.

Stephanie said...

OMG Happy Birthday

I have this birthday song, but it would lose all awesomeness if typed

and clearly, that cannot be risked

so, happy birthday

leazwell said...

Glad Eva enjoyed the day. Barbara you must a proud mom!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh it was that alright, Mal Snay!

Flattery will get you everywhere, Phlegmmy! Thanks.

Birthmonth - I like the way you're thinking on that, Kristen! But the parents can stop spending money after one day, right?
I do see some resemblance between your mom and Eva in that pic. We'll have to do a more intensive comparison this August. Can't WAIT to see you!

Aww Beth,that's so sweet - thanks!

You will be pleased to know that spoiling rotten was a huge part of the day, Toccata.
That kitty kills me too - I've never seen a cat sleep quite like that one.

We will imagine in our heads, you singing that song in your dulcet tones, Stephanie, and all will be awesome.

I am very proud of my great kid, Leazwell. She's my life.
