Ellie is 12!

(Just realized somehow this didn't post in October!)
I'm still trying to catch up on blog posts from the spring, and finally we got some photos of her room so I can post this! Ellie turned 12 in April, so it's already nearly her half birthday!

This year she wanted a room re-do for her birthday. We got new-to-us bunk beds for her and Katie, new bedding, new wall art, a night stand, and some other decorations. On her birthday we went to Whole Foods for breakfast, a mall outing with the girls, Lupe Tortilla for lunch with my parents, and then her friends Catherine and MaryKatherine came over for the evening and we got some gourmet cupcakes for them!

Her pretty room!

I'd still like to hang some curtains and paint her red gumball machine to match the room. But overall they did a great job decluttering, painting, and decorating, and hopefully Katie will start sleeping in there soon! 

Ellie is now only a half year from being a teenager; I can't believe how quickly this is all happening. She's a great help with her siblings, does well with her school classes, and enjoys her four days of ballet every week. I'm hanging onto these last six months before she's a teen...

Happy Belated Birthday to Ellie!!!
