Julia the brilliant

Something special happened in August.

As you know Anne Marie turned 10.

But Julia also had a birthday and turned 14.

It's a fun, crazy age.

She went to her first Youth Dance for our church(you have to be 14).

She started high school.

Milestones that add some spice to life.

We wanted to make her birthday special. Kate especially was teeming with an idea so grand and wonderful that it had to be done.

You see, there is this global phenomenon that has taken over the spare time of many teenage girls, and their parents ;)

It is a little television show called Doctor Who. And Julia is one of the biggest fans.

So Kate thought we should have a Doctor Who themed party. Not a small task

There had to be actual planning on this one. No last minute stuff.

The first thing that had to be done was to build a T.A.R.D.I.S.

That stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space.

It's a time machine. And the pilot is a time lord who travels the universe with different companions(friends), usually humans, saving civilizations and planets and having adventures. Oh, and he is over 900 years old.

The Tardis is bigger on the inside and the outside looks like a 1940's British police box.

So of course we, I mean Jeff, had to build a Tardis, and Kate and I had to figure out how to make it bigger on the inside.

Because the Tardis can takes it's occupants back in time, we thought what would be more fun than having the Tardis take Julia back in time to eat dinner with other time travellers in a Titanic inspired way?

Wee hoo this was so fun. You ready for the pictures?

We landed the Tardis in front of our garage. Seemed like a perfect spot.

Then I drove Julia around while everyone arrived and finished things up.

I made her close her eyes when we got back so that all she could hear was the whooshing noise that the Tardis makes.

When she opened her eyes, she saw the 10th Doctor waiting for her.

He took her hand and told her to run. The Doctor says that a lot. She seems a bit stunned.

She walked into the Tardis to discover that it is in fact bigger on the inside.

And it's ready for it's next flight.

Grandparents, parents and siblings all joined in the adventure.

It was really, really, fun.

She turned 14, she really did.

She is an amazing girl. We call her our Renaissance child because she does a little bit of everything.

And she does it well.

She is writing a book.( And it's really good.)

She writes beautiful poetry.

She is a budding artist. She draws all the time.

She sings and acts and writes songs.

She is a 4.0 student and most importantly to this mother and her dad, she is a good, righteous daughter of God.

She loves her Savior and desires to do good.

She is amazing.

Her and Kate are inseparable. Best friends. And Kate's love of Julia not only made this wonderful party a reality, but I know it is part of why Julia succeeds at so much.

Her sister/best friend is her biggest fan.

Happy Birthday Jules. We love you!
