One year ago today she was pretty in pink. Turning twelve. Sharing a bedroom with her little brother. Hanging on to her stuffed animals and putting headbands in her hair.
Now she’s too cool for all that. Two inches taller. Has had her first pedicure. Has plans to write a book about Norse history, and hides away in her own room downstairs drawing and using her laptop.
The stuffed animals – well, half of them – were donated this past week to a friend giving a garage sale. Kitty cats and ponies.
My little girl is a teenager today.
I thought I would share with you her fancy cupcake project she did last year in honor of her day. She loves to bake.
Last year she made her own cupcakes and colored her own frosting… and created these cute cupcake toppers for our family members and her sleepover friends. It was an all-day project, so this year she told me she wanted me to buy her frosted cookies instead.
