Happy 13th Birthday – A New Milestone

I am dedicating this post to my First Granddaughter who turns 13 today, hence a new milestone for her becoming an official TEENAGER!
Today I will provide links to all the birthday parties for this granddaughter from her First Birthday to her 13th Birthday.

It is a special day for me as well since to honor her birth 13 years ago, and making me a grandmother for the first time, I decided to take my son’s advice and start my own blog:  Suburbangrandma.com  Thank you ALL for being such good sports following my blog and leaving such heartwarming comments…:-)
