That's right, 12. My oldest daughter turned twelve on the 6th. Pre-teen and yes the attitude has already started! But like all things, we will live through it.

Here's the birthday girl talking to family back in Oregon.

She is constantly eyeing my stash of finished jewelry and hinting about which items she likes so she got some of her favorite pieces. It was nice to see her light up when she realized they were for her since she watched me make them!

And her blowing out her candles, I thought she was gonna set off the fire alarm, there was a ton of smoke!
So here is to a year of emotional ups and downs of a pre-teen. Pray for our survival!

I am praying for you. LOL!! No one tells you when you sign up for this that the terrible two's mean two digits.
And tell the birthday girl Happy Birthday for me.

congratulations on starting a blog! I've "met" more wonderful beaders here than I ever thought I would!
and your eldest daughter and I share the same birthday...I'm just a "few" years older, lol!

Happy late Birthday to you and thanks! I am having fun doing the blog, it's been on my to do list for a long time. I am having a blast checking out everybody else's blogs too. It's so neat to see the diversity in beading.
