More CELBEBRATING!!

And the Celebrating continues! Courtney turned the BIG 12 today, HAPPY 12th BIRTHDAY COURTNEY!! A pre-teen and well, now we will get to endure a little more "drama" *smirk* Time has flown by and my Little Miss Courtney is now a year older...
This was the beginning of the year, at school...this year she will be in middle-school. Courtney is a bit scare, but excited as well. Courtney was a "perfect" baby during the day and at night, she was a holy terror. She hated to sleep. Now, she loves to hear the stories of everything she put us through and chuckles about it....the little TURKEY!
She looks a bit more mature in this picture, taken today. She picked out her cake for us today and of course, a Hershey chocolate pie...YUM! It is one of her favorite's. She opened presents, we sang to her and she blew out the candles....shortly after, we all played Boggle. Later on in the day, she said I had a nice day today Mom....but you know what my favorite part was? When we all played Boggle. I told her, I was glad and that in life, most of the time...it is the little things that really matter the most...
This was Courtney reading her card. She loved the card I made her and even loved the envelope. I enjoy making cards really special, when I have the time. I was up until 3 am again last night....but this time making a card and wrapping presents. That will teach me to plan ahead. HA! I am one that never learns with things like that....always have to do things the most difficult way. A creature of habit mind you.

Well, I have lots to do......ALWAYS! I hope you all had a beautiful day.....it was PERFECT here. We could not have asked for a better day to Celebrate. Well, we get a bit of a break from birthdays...just for a wee-bit, Sunday is my Birthday. Another year older.....maybe just another year wiser. HA! Ta-ta for now, ~Tonya

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Courtney! Aaahhhh...the middle school days...lol
Really though, I enjoyed my kids the most in middle school, but even more so in HS...
Cherish your time with them - you blink and they're grown and gone

Aww, she is beautiful. There is such a difference between 11 and 12 isn't there? My daughters are 19 and 21 now and I remember how much fun it is to see them evolve into young ladies and someone you genuinely love hanging out with! We have so much fun together, and you will too!

Yes, it is the little things in life that seem to bring us the most joy in life and we often take them for granted. I am glad that the day was so very special. It was cold here today and I loved it.
Get some rest my friend and we will chat soon.
Hugs,Pea
