"You must have been a beautiful baby, cause baby, look at you now........."
I blinked and my sweet G has turned 11. She is growing into such a beautiful young woman--on the inside and the outside. (Spoken like a true mother :-)
This was the first year that she didn't have a big "to-do" with all her friends. I wish we could do the big party every year but we agreed after age 10 to only do parties on mile-stone birthdays. (Definitely some mommy-guilt on my part on this one.) We opted to spend the day together as a family this year--donuts for breakfast, a trip to Roberson's Music to buy a piccolo, to Sweet Reasons cupcake shop to pick out cupcakes for everyone, to the movies to see the new release "Cinderella" and then dinner at El Charro.
The picture below is our first family of three pic taken while we were in China and G's school pic from this year. I can only say, "Wow!"
