My littlest girl, my littlest baby, who turns 12 today, with her late grandfather.
God rest his soul.
I don't know what we were doing. She looks a bit like St. Michael the Archangel. Just adorable.
All set for Halloween. She has always liked makeup or face paint====you know how some kids freak out when you put anything on their faces? Not her, which always surprised me.
I just think this is one of the cutest pics ever, especially with Pip's little photo-bomb! We were in Colonial Williamsburg and it was 105 freaking-degrees, so we bought her the little cap to keep the sun off her head. (I think I'd be thrilled with 105 degrees right now; I'm so tired of this cold. 11 this morning. E. Lev. En. in Atlanta.)
I don't know why I had the hankering to make this princess dress for halloween. Normally I'm a "go see what you can find in the dress-up bin" kind of Mom. But I loved making it, and she loved wearing it! (She might have a bit of a princess complex.)
Don't go near her with a soda, because she will suck it all down in an instant! She was so excited to get her own soda today at the grocery store for a birthday treat!
And now my precious baby is 12. She's growing into a lovely young lady. She's 5'1" with sherry-colored brown eyes, and she's as sweet as she can be. Most of the time. When she's not being a perfectly normal 12 year old. She loves school and works hard at improving her grades and becoming a better friend. What more could you ask for?
Happy birthday, Margie!
(If you hang around here often, you'll know that's not her "everyday" nickname. She has several. ;-) )
