OK I am making myself sit down and do this blog post. I have been so bad lately.
Not only can I not believe that my baby is 10 years old, I cannot believe I am old enough to have a 10 year old. Where does the time go, seriously?
We did have a great birthday with Aubree. She is getting so grown up. I told Bruce it is weird that she is as excited to get clothes as she is to get toys. I guess it is part of growing up. She also got the Littlest Pet Shop for the Wii and some High School Musical Barbie dolls.
This is the Tinkerbell cake we came up with. I was kind of nervous about it , because she had been sketching out what she wanted, but she seemed pretty happy with it, although it is not one of my best cakes.
We did a fairy birthday party with her friends and really had a good time! I love putting on birthday parties for my kids. This is some of the girls making fairy wands. We also made candy necklaces and ribbon barrettes. The girls had so much fun with the crafts we didn't even get to many of the games. But it was a lot of fun. After the party, her best friend Darby stayed for dinner and our very first sleepover. They had all these big plans of what they wanted to do all night, and then ended up falling asleep by 10 pm. Oh well, it was still pretty exciting.
I can't believe how grown up my girl is getting. IT is crazy to be sharing CDs and having some pretty grown up conversations. Aubree is such a smart girl. She loves to read, and has already read the entire Harry Potter series. She will read anything she can get her hands on. She also loves ballet. Her ballet teacher once told me that she loves to watch Aubree dance, because she can just see the joy she has when she dances and that is not something you can teach. She is also becoming a good piano player. I love Aubree so much and am so proud of the young woman she is becoming!
