M (oldest child) turned 12 yesterday. It seems amazing that 12 years can have passed so quickly. I remember her birth as if it happened just recently.
We celebrated with family members yesterday. M will celebrate with her friends next weekend, as this weekend she had other birthday parties to attend. May is a very birthday-heavy month!
M loves writing, so her main present was an old typewriter sourced on ebay:
The rest of the family was very excited too, including one of the cats, who is determined to sleep on it!
M also got money and books, and a small J Crew package, containing the top she's wearing, a hoodie and a letter 'M' pendant. She was thrilled with all her presents, but Super pleased with the money!
The cake. It was a raspberry cheesecake surrounded by 12 cupcakes. Made by my wonderful mother!
Making a wish...
The cats got a present too: A scratching post. They've wrecked the upholstery on most of our furniture, but hopefully they'll transfer their attention to the scratching post from now on. So far so good!
Did you have a good weekend?
Did cake feature as heavily as it did in our house?
