11th Birthday!

Hello everyone!  I hope you all are doing well.  I have been very busy and am going to continue with that weather I like it or not!  Anyways, my youngest daughter turned 11 yesterday.  I cannot beleive that she is 11.  My dad had to point out that in 2 more years she will be a teenager/13!  Uggg, not yet, really!  Where does time go?  Well we had both sets of her grandparents over to celebrate with us.  We had her favorite food, pizza!  Then we had a yummy ice cream cake.  Next she opened her gifts from everyone!  We all had a great time of food, fun and laughter!  The only thing that was hard on her was that she had to stay upstairs for part of the day while I made her card.  Poor kid!  Because our kids are homeschooled, I never really get time without them around to surprise them with anything!  So that is why she had to stay I said, "poor kid!" She has been showing an interest in card making so she got a bunch of things for her to really begin her "Collecting" for her own card making.  So she understands and appreciates the work that goes into my cards.  When she opened her card, she then understood why it took so long! She is so much fun to have around.  She almost always has a smile on her face.  You can always count on her to say or do something silly and make us all laugh.  We are so blessed to have her as a part of our family and I would never trade her for the world!
Well here is some pictures of our celebration and her card.
