I absolutely cannot believe I have a 12 year old. How does that even happen? Where does the time go? I remember when she was a teeny tiny little curly blonde cutie that would talk & talk & talk & talk & talk. When did she become such a lovely young lady? Sometimes I wish we could somehow stop our kids from growing up, but I must admit that I'm loving every new year & new phase of life that my kids explore. I think I just wish it would happen a little more slowly.
For her Birthday Breakfast, Cadence wanted homemade blueberry & apple cinnamon muffins, orange slices, & bacon. . . oh & of course a ding dong! We can't forget the ding dong.
She was so sweet that morning. Cadence is such a beautiful happy girl. She was SO excited it was her special day.
She even let all of her siblings hold up 12 fingers instead of doing it herself. She loves her family SO much. 12 years old. (Wow, I'm way too young to have a 12 year old right?)
She looked beautiful when she got ready for school.
The day didn't go exactly as planned. I picked her up from school for a 12 year old physical with her doctor & wound up stuck in the hospital for 6 1/2 hours because Canyon wound up with pneumonia, but Cadence was such a good sport & helped me take care of her two brothers.
Even after a very eventful day filled with doctors, medicine, & puke, she had a wonderful birthday. After daddy got home from work & the kids got home from school we let her open her presents.
|Nancy sent some clothes, an overnight bag,|
socks, some stationary, & a raw cut amethyst.
|Lorien bought Cadence an Enderman stuffed|
toy & some combs.
|Mamoo sent her $10|
|Grandma Kinsfather also sent $10|
|Opa & Oma know how much Cadence loves|
Legos so they sent her the new Lego Friends
|And Auntie Cari & Uncle Justin sent her a|
new book series that she's been wanting to read
|The rest of the kiddos got her the third book in the book series|
so she gets to read the entire set.
|And Trek & I got her the new Frozen Lego|
set. She was so excited that she made it
right after dinner.
|Mimi & Baba gave her the new Minecraft|
Lego set. She's all about Minecraft right now
so she loved it.
For her birthday dinner, I made one of her favorites:
Chicken Cordon Bleu, Kiwis, & Caesar Salad.
She was a very happy young lady.
Happy Birthday Cadence. Thank you for being so wonderful. We love you so much.
