twelve

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

There were twelve balloons, her favorite soup in bread bowls, along with the requested lady bug cake (what? it doesn't look like a ladybug to you?) filled with mint chocolate chip ice-cream.
Zero to six...the speed of sound.
Six to twelve... the speed of light.

Happy Birthday, to my most favorite twelve year old in the whole wide world.

    Leslie, I know how you feel. Was just looking at my oldest, who is 13 (soon to be 14) and I felt a little nauseous at how fast he was growing.

  6. Hope your daughter had the very best birthday a twelve year old could ask for!

    Cake sounds delicious, the photograph of her holding the balloons is the best, and soup in bread bowls sounds perfect.

  48. happy birthday to your beautiful daughter.
    I have been reading your blog for a few years now, and I just figured out that we both have 2 boys with a girl in the middle.
    Their birthdays are so close together, i can't believe it. Jack is going to be 3 on tuesday, and I think our oldest kids birthdays are less than a week apart too.
