Emma's Birthday Celebration!

No Matter How Many Birthdays Come And Go, You’ll Always Be my Little Girl. Happy Birthday my 12 Year Old Daughter!!

Get ready for lots of pictures.
Be sure to read the bottom of this post.
I have a special birthday request.

Emma had a wonderful Parisian birthday party. My parents even managed to surprise all of us with a Eiffel Tower statue on loan from their local florist. How cool is that!! Doesn't my mother make the prettiest birthday cakes? Yummy! Speaking of food, most of the kids actually liked the caviar. Who knew! Thanks again for bringing so many delicious treats, Aunt Jean & Aunt Marion.

And since Emma will be reading this post (who am I kidding, she reads all my posts) I'd love to have my readers wish her a Happy Birthday. What 12 year old wouldn't be tickled with a bunch of people from around the United States/world thinking about her?? You could even tell her where you're from....she would totally get a kick out of that!!

Happy Birthday from Amarillo TX.
I love the party theme and of course the cake is just marvelous.

Tell your mom she did a wonderful job on your party planning. I use to do this for my older daughters too. Now I get to do this for my little ones all over again.

You are such a beautiful young lady both inside and out. I can't wait to see what the future holds for you!

Your party was so lovely, and I know your friends and cousins loved all those extra special touches of your mom's and grandmom's.

Have a happy week ahead,

Love the theme! Has that touch of grown-up sophistication. And yes, them kids do grow up so fast. Sometimes you just wish time could slow down a bit so you can enjoy them more.
