Twelve

I can't believe it!  Alley is twelve years old.
 Every year the kids age it only gets better!  I love having older kids.  However Alley turning 12 was a hard hit on me, because it means that she will be making more of her own decisions, wanting to be with friends more and leaving our home in 6 short years!
 But for now we will enjoy every second!
She got a whole lot of cute clothes, perfume, a bracelet and this cute umbrella! (see what I mean all grown up presents!)

It's actually a good thing that she's growing up and getting cool birthday presents now, because that just means that YOU get more cool stuff too!! (in a sort of/half way kind of way) :)

Awww, she's adorable.
I loved when my girls turned 12 and went to YW. The help from the leaders and good friends (hopefully) was a blessing. They listened to them much more than they listened to me. Plus it's fun to have grown-up conversations with them.

Alley is so gorgeous! I can't believe she is 12 either. It makes me sad to think by the time Tod and I move back she will be in college =( I made her and Elizabeth really cute cards yesterday, I will be sending their gifts soon! Love you guys!
