it was a happy birthday weekend

amanda's birthday was last week and it seemed that we celebrated all weekend.  we had a small family party on her actual birthday which was thursday.  then, she had friday off of school so i took her birthday shopping so she could pick out what she would like. it was also her year to have a birthday party with friends and she decided that she wanted to spend the night in a hotel with a few of her friends.  so we continued the celebration on sunday night at the nearby sleep inn.

my baby girl is 12! :(
grandma still thinks she is a princess!

four very tired girls at breakfast after a very long night laughing, talking and playing games.  i do not think that they went to sleep at all until the sun started to come up.
i think she enjoyed turning 12!
it was a happy birthday weekend!

Happy Birthday to your sweet 12 year old. I remember those nights as a young girl. Seems like you can only do that while your young. ;-)

LOL - they sure look tired! My 12 is getting ready to turn 13 in a few months - and this year, I just look at his brothers who get so frustrated and laugh and say, "it's a stage. he'll outgrow it." The stage where he's trying to be grown-up like the bigger teens and still trying to be little with the little brother - and not playing either part with a winning hand (am I mixing my metaphors?) - All mixed in with the sulkies. However, I adore 12. It really is such a tween year:)

Happy Birthday to you both!!!!!

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter. To be 12 again... My daughter just turned 28 yrs. old in February. Now that really makes me feel old!

I love your celebrations.
