Next week will be the third time she has had to celebrate her birthday on Thanksgiving, but at 12, she will be old enough to make all of those hard decisions (like cake or pie) by herself. She has opted to have pie on Thursday and a totally separate family party with cake on Sunday. (I told you she was a smart girl...)
She had great attendance, with only one girl who was unable to come. We did hair and nails and had a terrific time. Nobody even got burned on a curling iron.
