twelve

There were twelve balloons, her favorite soup in bread bowls, along with the requested lady bug cake (what? it doesn't look like a ladybug to you?) filled with mint chocolate chip ice-cream.
Zero to six...the speed of sound.
Six to twelve... the speed of light.
Happy Birthday, to my most favorite twelve year old in the whole wide world.

Happy Birthday Libby!

Leslie, I know how you feel. Was just looking at my oldest, who is 13 (soon to be 14) and I felt a little nauseous at how fast he was growing.

Hope your daughter had the very best birthday a twelve year old could ask for!

Cake sounds delicious, the photograph of her holding the balloons is the best, and soup in bread bowls sounds perfect.

Happy Birthday!! If it was on the 3rd it was one day off of mine. November is a great month for birthdays. My little girl will be 8 on Sat. I can still close my eyes and be back in the hospital the night I had her just mesmerized by her!!

Precious! Brought tears to my eyes (especially because I have a six-year-old daughter like in your "before" photo!).

MadMad said...

Is there anything faster than the speed of light? Cuz that's what I'm actually hoping happens with mine, from 12-18. Just sayin'. Happy, happy, though, to yours!

Hilary said...

Happy Birthday to Libby! I LOVE the ladybug cake and it sounds tasty, too!

Amanda said...

That cake is adorable! Do you mean there was ice cream inside the cake? If so, how did you do that? Is it a Baked Alaska-style trick?

Philigry said...

happy birthday to your beautiful daughter.
I have been reading your blog for a few years now, and I just figured out that we both have 2 boys with a girl in the middle.
Their birthdays are so close together, i can't believe it. Jack is going to be 3 on tuesday, and I think our oldest kids birthdays are less than a week apart too.

Michelle said...

many thanks for that recipe link, I tried it last night (lightened a little) and indeed, it tastes just like the Panera soup! loved it!

theknittingcowgirl said...

Happy Birthday, Libby!
I hope this year is a great one for you.
