Happy Birthday Monkey!!!

Yep, it’s that time of year again. Today is her big day…12 years old. That’s only 4 years away from driving. I can not tell you the heart palpitations that gives me. We started out her day with a mini-breakfast party. It was early, her bus shows up at 7:00 am sharp, so she’s an early riser. See, this is what a birthday girl looks like at 6:30 am. Clicky to embiggen of course! You get the full effect that way.

Being that is was her birthday we had to have a super healthy and nutritious breakfast…well they started out that way. They are whole wheat waffles that I made. I’m sure her teachers will thank me today.

And of course we can’t send the birthday girl off to school without letting her open at least one present. She is a Teva nut, this is what she lives in all summer long. And these are so “Monkey”, they had to come home with us. She loved them!

Happy Birthday Monkey, We love you!

    Happy Birthday Elizabeth! Geez, if you still lived across the street I’d have gotten in on those yummy waffles! I miss you! I found a whole box of Barbie clothes from when I was your age – some even that my grandmother knitted. I thought of you when I found them. I need a 12 year old across the street to visit me! Glad to see you are so happy where you are! Even though I miss you, I am happy that you are in a great place and doing well. Love, marilyn
