Where does the time go

Where does the time go? I woke one morning this June holding a little girl in my arms that was only a few months old. Then in walks my oldest daughter... She has turned 10 today. I look at the baby girl in my arms and my other baby girl standing there before me and for the life of me, I can not figure out how it happened. I blinked. And she is half way to being an adult. I fear I will have to pry my eyes open with toothpicks in fear of blinking again and having her be that grown up.
She is such an amazing girl I keep wanting to call her little but she is not. She is so grown up... and continues to do so.

We celebrated her birthday twice this year, once with family and the other with friends. It was fun. Her friends came and we made flower clips for each of them. It was a perfect easy going birthday party and lots of fun.

Her rock star micro phone cup cakes.

Who knew my child would like cooking? I hope she continues to do so... I missed the boat. I do love to bake but not cook. She already owns more cookbooks than I did when I got married.

It will be interesting to see what the next ten years bring for her.

Who knew it could be so entertaining?

What could be so entertaining you ask? What could bring all three children to this..???
(Okay so mom took advantage of the opportunity with the picture above... it was cute.)

Something that could make the husband do this?

It also made me a very happy person. I have waited a long time. Can you guess what it is?

A FAN in the living room! Yeah. We have had the fan sitting in a box taking up space for about six months. Finally after a long wait and some begging to the hubby on my part... Some warm weather on mothers natures part. He finally installed it. Our family room faces West and gets quite toasty in the summer in the evenings when the sun is getting ready to set. This fan is wonderful it feels so nice. And who knew it could be so entertaining for the kids.
