Happy 12th birthday to my little bug. I can't believe Lorien is 12 years old. She gets to start Young Women's activities at church, she can babysit, & she's just as adorable as ever.
For her birthday breakfast she wanted the same thing she asks for every year:
and a birthday Ding Dong
I cringe every time I buy toaster strudels. I just don't like them, but boy does Lo love them. And I only buy them once a year. . . for her birthday. So she was pretty excited.
I love how my kids are so happy & cheery, even at 5:30 in the morning.
And of course Canyon is in a "photo bomb silly face" phase so he's hilarious in every picture he's in. Lorien loves her brothers & sisters so much. They helped her hold up 12 fingers.
Lorien got all sorts of amazing presents from friends, grandparents, aunts & uncles, & cousins. She loves them all.
(Check out the super cool Harry Potter purse she got from her grandma!!! SO ADORABLE.)
Trek & I got both her & Cadence a new bike for their birthdays. It's been 6 years since either of them has had a new bike. Needless to say, bikes were much needed this year.
For Lorien's birthday dinner I made her favorite:
Pepperjack Chicken Enchiladas
& Chips & Salsa.
She, of course, loved it.
Although I'm a terrible mom & forgot her caesar salad (I swear my girls could eat caesar salad by the gallon.) SO . . . the next day I went & bought her her very own large caesar salad kit to eat all by herself. She ate every last drop.
Happy birthday my beautiful darling. We love you.
