I woke up today and I had the biggest smile on my face,
Caylee's birthday party is Saturday but today is her actual
birthday and I was invited to her birthday dinner tonight and
tonight is the night I'm giving her the special gift, the big
one. I picked up Bella and I spun her around when I was in the
hallway "How are you this morning?" Sarah asked me "I'm good. How
are you?" I asked "I'm good. Do you mind taking Bella down?"
Sarah asked "not at all." I said going downstairs and my dad
smiled at me "So today is the big day son!" My dad said and I
smiled at him "I'm hoping she will like it." I said "Ashton you
know she will." My dad said and I smiled at him, I knew she would
I was just getting nervous about tonight.I set Bella down in the
chair and I sat beside her for breakfast.
After breakfast I took a shower and I wore my nice pair of
denim jeans with my baby blue polo and I smiled at myself, I had
on Caylee's favorite cologned that she loved. "Ash you still have
a few hours." Sarah said and I smiled "With that few hours would
you like for me to baby-sit?" I asked "Do you want to?" My dad
asked me all shocked "Yes sir. Go have fun." I said "Sarah! Come
on before Ashton changes his mind!" My dad said and they smiled
at me and then they took off before I could change my mind
because I thought I was crazy too volunteering to baby-sit. "I
have to hang with friends." Tony said "Not without dad's and
mom's permission." I said "She isn't your mom." Tony said
"You still need their permission." I said I was getting tired of
his attitude. "Watch it." I said "What?" He asked trying to get
in my face "Tony, I'm not afraid to put you in your place." I
said "Fine." Tony said stalking off to his room.
They pulled up around four and I smiled at the girls who
were watching a movie "Where is Tony?" My dad asked "His room. I
didn't have your permission to let him go, he got in my face with
an attitude and I put him in his place." I said "I'm sorry Ash.
Tony is in this phase." Sarah said and I nodded I remember that
phase but I wasn't nearly this bad towards my mom. "I'm going to
go ahead and go." I said "Thanks Ash." My dad said "No thank
you." I said and I took my dad's keys and I went upstairs and got
my gift for Caylee and I pur the box in the seat beside me, I
have her ring inside a bigger box so she wouldn't expect a thing.
So I get woken up early by "Sissy! Happy birthday!" Landon
jumped on the air mattress and sat on me Sassy climbed on the bed
with Lauren when that happened. "Thanks buddy." I said putting my
glasses on "Move out." He said and I smiled at him. "Let sissy
sleep in first, okay?" I asked "No!" He said ad I rolled my eyes.
"Morning Cay! Happy birthday Caylee-bug!" Lauren said when she
opened her eyes. "Thanks. "I said sitting up now with Landon in
my lap but he quickly ran off to let everybody know I was up now
so they could tell me happy birthday. "Happy birthday Caylee."
Jack said "Thanks." I said half-awake. I got up and I crawled
into my bed and I smiled at Lauren "I love you." I said hugging
her. "I love you too Caylee. Today is your big birthday." Lauren
said smiling at me.
I got up and I put my contacts in and I took a shower and
then I curled my hair and wore my yellow sundress with my cowboy
boots and I applied my makeup. "Laur, do you work today?" I asked
"My only day off." Lauren said "Sat?" I asked "I will be home
before the pary." Lauren said and I smiled at her. We both went
downstairs and I got told happy birthday from Liam, Bryson. Sean,
and my mom. "Doing anything fun today?" My mom asked me
"Currently not that I know of." I said and my mom smiled at me
"You will think of something." She said and I nodded I knew she
was right, after all today is my day. Jack went to work, my mom
had to take Landon to the doctor's, Sean to the eye's doctor, and
Bryson to the dentist and Liam has somewhere he wants to go so it
will be just Lauren and I. "Bye everyone." I said when they were
leaving "Love you." Mom said and they left and I smiled at
"So." Lauren said "So?" I asked "Let's go." Lauren said
"Where to?" I asked "You will see. Don't ask questions." Lauren
said giggling at me and I rolled my eyes at her. I grabbed my
phone and I put it my shoulder purse and we went outside "You can
drive my car." I said "Good." Lauren said taking the keys from me
and getting into the car. "Put this on." Lauren ordered handing
me a sleeping mask cover and she put a blind fold over that and I
smiled at her "Why must I be blind-folded?" I asked "You don't
want to ruin the surprise." Lauren said "No!!! I hate surprises.'
I said "I know but you will love his." Lauren said and I smiled
at her. "Are you excited?" Lauren asked after I could feel the
car moving at a fast speed "I am." I said with as much sarcasm as
I could use."Oh stop." Lauren said and I giggled "not fun is
this?" I asked "No." Lauren said but she was quiet until we
pulled to a sudden stop. "Okay we're here." Lauren said "Where is
here?" I asked "Oh hush." Lauren said and she opened her door.
After leading me somewhere by the arm "Caylee, are you
ready?" I asked "Yes!" I said "Okay!" Lauren said and she took
the blind-fold off and I looked around I was in our first dance
studio where we met when I first moved here. Somebody was there
too "Kelsey!" I said running to her and hugging her "Lauren told
me about your birthday and how everybody had plans for today."
Kelsey said "And your mother agreed for Kelsey to stay until
Sunday." Lauren said "Yes!" I said and then I realized less time
with Ashton but I would still make time for him. "Care to go
somewhere?" Lauren asked "No blind fold." I said "Deal." Kelsey
said "where's your car?" I asked "Your place." Kelsey said and I
smiled at her. We ended up going to the spa, we got the facial
mask, manicures and pedicures. Then they treated me out to my
favorite mexican resturant for my birthday lunch. I loved my
girls day's out.
Caylee's and Ashton's Pov:
After Ashton pulled up with the gift he walked up to the door
and rung the doorbell. "I got it!" Caylee yelled she was wearing
the same thing as earlier in the day. "Ashton!" Caylee said
wrapping her arms around his neck and kissing his lips. "Happy
birthday." Ashton said "Thank you." Caylee said leading his hand,
Ashton saw Lauren and Caylee's family and then another girl he
didn't know blonde hair and baby blue eyes. "Ashton this is
Kelsey, Kelsey this is Ashton." Caylee said and Ashton nodded,
Caylee talked about Kelsey a lot a friend from dance camp. "Okay,
I guess Lauren, Ashton, Caylee, and Kelsey can take Caylee's car
and the rest can ride with us?" Caylee's mom Karen said "Yes
ma'am." Caylee said and they all got in their cars, Ashton sat up
front. "What did you get me?" Caylee asked Ashton "You will see."
Ashton said "Ash has been giving me a special gift each day, a
little more special as the day gets closer to my birthday."
Caylee told Kelsey who smiled.
After a wonderful dinner and they went back home, Ashton,
Kelsey, Caylee, and Lauren were out on the porch. "I need to give
you my gift before I head off." Ashton said "Yeah you do." Caylee
said smiling at him. "I love you Caylee. You're beautiful, smart,
kind, loving, caring. I would be lost without you." Ashton said
"Aww!" Lauren and Kelsey said and Caylee opened up the box.
"Another box." Caylee said and she opened that one to see a
smaller box. "Geeze, boxes?" Caylee asked and Ashton smiled.
Caylee finally found the little jewerly box. Thinking it was
another pair of earrings or something she was shocked to see the
golden band with a diamond heart shape "This is a promise ring
Caylee. My promise to you that my heart only belongs to you. That
you are the one for me. What do you say?" Ashton asked and Caylee
kissed his lips softly as he placed the ring on her finger.
