The only other lady in the house is becoming a young woman :)
She turned 12 at the end of October
These next several pics are from our celebration at my parents' home the week before her birthday.
Here she is (from a distance) while her class sings Happy Birthday to her...
After school I snatched her up and surprised her by taking her to get her ears pierced.
She had been asking for a while if she could.
She did great and we spent quite a bit of time afterward looking for earrings and fun things.
Then we stopped and snacked on soft pretzels, checked out Bath and Body Works and then went and picked up pizza for her birthday dinner.
Her main gifts were a new scripture bag with a matching Personal Progress holder since she is now in Young Women at church...
...and an essential oil diffuser for her room.
In the past, she has begged to use mine so I figured it would be a fun surprise for her.
We watched a movie and had pumpkin and salted caramel cheesecake after we ate our pizza.
We love this lady! She is such a great influence in our home and is beyond helpful taking care of Ben. She is kind and loved by all her peers. It's fun to see her growing up :)
Happy Birthday sweet Abs!
