I have neglected this blog for far too long!
So much has happened, each event deserving of it's own blog entry, but for now I have to get them all out in one.
For starters, my baby girl turned 10! Double digits! It was a big deal!
For her birthday, we redid her whole room (pictures and blog to come), and also threw her a huge birthday party with a 9-girl-sleepover that followed. She was thrilled :)

Yet another surprise...
