Happy 12th Birthday Miss A!!

We had a wonderful Christmas, and I will post pictures of that soon, but right before Christmas we had a birthday at our house. My oldest turned 12!!! For some reason the even numbered years seem the hardest, I didn't have a problem with 3,5,7,9, or 11, but 2,4,6,8, 10, and (gulp) 12 seem really hard! Why is that? Anyway, she is such a good girl, and she had a great birthday, and it was extra special to have an aunt, uncle and 2 cousins here to help celebrate. Miss A is such a blessing in my life--she is a straight A 6th grader in the middle school, she is an awesome babysitter, and she tries so hard to choose the right. She is an example to me as she reads her scriptures every night and trys to be like Jesus. I am so blessed to have a daughter like her! Happy Birthday Miss A! I love you!

On their birthdays the kids get to pick where they want to eat for dinner. Miss A picked Pizza Hut. Yum!

Miss A's birthday is the 23rd, and we have the tradition that on that night everyone can sleep down by the Christmas tree.

Ben always does the birthday cakes with the kids. He and Miss A designed this one. Pretty cool, huh? That's my girl.

  1. Happy Birthday A! Cannot believe TWELVE years have gone by for us since the birth of your first born child and now in two months the birth of my first born child. Sigh.
    Hooray for Pizza Hut! My kids always choose ChuckECheese. BARF.
