Halle turns 12!

 The cell phone rule at our house is that you get one when you turn 12.  Halle has not so patiently waited for her 12th birthday for a LOOOOONNNG time.  She was SO excited to finally get a phone.  And I have to be honest, I was too.  It has eased a lot of her anxiety to know she can call me and vice versa when needed.

 Halle is certainly growing up.  She didn't really want a party this year.  Not even a cake.  She just wanted to go ice skating with her friends.  So that is what we did.

 There were a couple of falls, but really, they all skated great and for most of them it was their first time.

 Afterwards, we went to Kiwi Loco for frozen yogurt and opened a few presents.  It was very low key and easy peasy for me!

Happy Birthday to our sweet Halle! Halle is our most affectionate child.  You can always count on a hug and squeeze from her. The closer she can be to you, the better.  She loves to laugh, and can find the funny in just about anything.  She is a sensitive soul and wears her emotions on her sleeve.  Her spit fire temper still shows itself once in a while, but she does a good job at keeping herself in check.  She is doing a good job at being able to help babysit for me once in a while.  Being alone is not her favorite thing, so I know she does it to help me and I love her for that. She is becoming a wonderful artist and loves to doodle and draw. She has been working so hard on her grades this year and got her first straight A report card.  We are SO proud of her and all the hard work she puts into everything in her life.  We love you Halle, our family would not be complete without you!
