Katyana turned 13 so we had FUN!

Posted on: January 16, 2012

We planned a busy weekend filled with fun to celebrate Katyana turning thirteen! On Friday, we went to MagiQuest and spent hours of fun going on quests, a laser race, pirate golf, and our favorite of all, the maze of mirrors!

Katyana, Sydney, and Ethan at MagiQuest in Pigeon Forge, TN.

Katyana checking out one of many items to be found on her quest!

Katyana chose the name “Anya the Magnificent” and was a warrior. Sydney chose “Princess Cosette” and aligned with the Magnificents. Ethan chose the name, “The Great Ebert” and joined the warriors. I was General Reedette and I joined with the tricksters!!!

Reedette kids lost in a maze of mirrors!

My birthday prayer for Katyana.

Katyana turned 13 years old at 6:14 p.m on 1-14-2012!!!

Not only did the Reedette Four get to see a wonderful free (due to cancellation of movie we wanted to see)  movie today on Katyana’s birthday, The War Horse, we also received her delicious, amazing, fresh (and would-be expensive) gluten-free cake FREE!!! Never mind it was made at the last minute and caused a huge inconvenience, it was FREE!!! (-: Katyana’s birthday celebration has been unexpectedly fun, with blessings along the way. We had a great time celebrating with the Korniyenko Family and Grammy.

To wrap up my daughter turning 13-years-old, the girls and I went to the Broadway Tour of Les Miserables and had a wonderful experience of amazing acting, singing, and special effects on stage. It was brilliant. The girls seemed to really enjoy it.

The most special part was running into friends throughout the evening and then meeting cast members at the end (aside from watching the show itself). We loved meeting the man who played Javert, Andrew Varela. He is so kind and so funny. We enjoyed meeting Sam Poon who played Gavroche; what a talented kid he is! And then we met the McVey Family. J. Mark McVey played Jean Valjean and his daughter, Kylie, played young Cosette. They were both spectacular!!! We enjoyed visiting with them for a bit and I was asked to show my circus trick, wiggling my ears. At least Kylie and Grace were impressed even though MY kids weren’t impressed. It was a delightful ending to a very fun weekend celebrating Katyana and the year 13.

Sydney, Katyana, The McVey Family, Briana Lackey, and Madison Mansouri!
