Say What?!

My oh my.

I really can't believe that she is 12 today!

It is crazy how time has flown by. I mean I feel like I am in denial that it has been 12 years since her birth. I remember the first time I held her. She was so alert with her dark dark hair and big round eyes. She is almost a teenager! Yikes!


She got to have a party today and she wanted an ice-cream themed party with kind of an old fashioned feel, so I did the best that I could.

Here are the balloons that SHE picked out. We didn't even realized what it said on them till we got home lol!


I took a ton of pictures of the party. It was fun planning and setting up and celebrating her big day! =)

Happy Birthday to my sweet girl!

I am so grateful that I get to be your mother!
