The Secret is Out . . . my baby girl is TWELVE today!




Noelle decided that she wanted to get her hair done for her birthday. So on Friday, I took her to my hair stylist.
Hmmmm
Is she like her mama, or what?


I'm so glad she just wanted a trim. I love her beautiful blond hair

Afterwards, we went to Couer d'Alene park (our fav) and had a BBQ picnic birthday party, with family and friends.


Love the faces . . .
Lighting effects . . . a group effort


Gift time . . .

GROUP HUG!

Happy belated birthday, Noelle. She has the prettiest hair. I'm glad that everyone had a great day. The weather looked great!

happy birthday to your beautiful daughter! i agree- a trim was just right- it would be a shame to cut off all that gorgeous hair.

i hope she loves yw!

Being in the Young Women's organization makes me understand how exciting this time in life is for her. We have such a tiny ward and so any new 12 year old coming in gets totally eaten up :) Those little Beehives are such a bundle of energy for sure!!
