Our girl turned 11 this weekend. Hard to believe we have 3 kids in the teen/tween ages. What a ride it has been so far!
For her 11th birthday, we took Dot out for dinner, without any siblings! She chose the restaurant - a local Mexican food place - and then we came home for cake!
The girls arrived in the morning all giggly and wound up. Like most 10-11 year old herds. And then they started designing. It was so fun to hear them and see them create! I had my older girl, Stripes, and her friends help them out while I made lunch and dessert in the kitchen
Can you see how happy Dot was to get the movie?! I think the girls already had it memorized, but now that we have it, they can sing along any time.
The plan was to have a fashion show of all the items the girls had crafted, but user-error - I didn't realize the paint they used had to dry for 4 hours, and longer if it was liberally applied. Which it was.
So the girls just got crazy with what was on hand along with dress-up clothes, and walked the catwalk (hallway) in other creations. Lots of laughter and craziness anyway.
