Happy Birthday Grace!

IMG_8430.JPG.jpeg
Today is Grace's 12th birthday! We had a family party for her on Saturday evening and today we went out for lunch and then I took her shopping for clothes, which is what she wanted instead of surprise presents.

She also wanted to make her own cake, which she did using pink and brown fondant. It turned out so cute!

The first 12 years went by so fast, hopefully the next 12 will slow down a bit!

Hi Kelli!

Happy Birthday to Grace! I know what you mean about the years going by too quickly. My middle child just turned 11 this past Friday and I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday! Children sure are precious gifts so enjoy each day that you have with them. I know I do!

God Bless,
Hillary

Happy Birthday Grace! Instead of Ace of Cakes, you should be "Grace of Cakes!" You did an excellent job!

I also love your name! My daughter is Mackenzye Grace, but we just call her Gracie.
