Happy Birthday Madison!

Today is our daughter, Madison's Birthday!
It's hard to believe that "my baby" is 12.

We had the best day celebrating.
First to church... then...
As tradition in our home...
Birthday person chooses where we eat out to celebrate.

This year Madison chose the CheeseCake Factory!
After an excellent meal, and enough leftover food
to bring home for dinner tonight...
We did some light shopping at the mall.
(It seemed that the Birthday girl was in desperate
need of a new pillow!)

Upon arriving home, we had about 15 minutes
before Grandma and Grandpa B joined us for
yummy birthday Cake!
Isn't that the coolest cake stand!
It is from a fantastic give-a-way I won
from Sue at I Need Mom!
Thank you Sue, I just love it!
Blue is one of Madison's favorite colors,
so I threw on a blue tablecloth and
brought out my blue glasses to help celebrate!
The cake was from Cold Stone Creamery.
Madison's favorite... Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!
I must say... very yummy!
Madison and Wayne
Me.   Madison.  Zac
Didn't take us long to finish off this cake!
God has blessed us with such a wonderful daughter!
We enjoy her fun sense of humor and 
her laugh that is contagious!
Happy Birthday my dear!

What a great day. Madison made an excellent choice for eating CheeseCake factory. I was so busy looking at that cake, I almost didn't notice the cake stand. I'm so happy to see you using it!

Daughters are very special...mine's 25 and she's still my baby!

What a great birthday! I like Cheesecake Factory too but you do get way too much food for one meal. That cake looks fantastic. Our Cold Stone closed :( but they have the best ice cream. Happy 12th, Madison!

She is adorable. I too have a 12 year old daughter, who chose to celebrate at Cheesecake Factory, just before dinner we were at the mall to buy her a pair of UGG boots, and she adores blue. So funny isn't it?! I think 12 is a wonderful age...and time in our relationship. Holly:)
