I know I said I would be taking a break for a couple of weeks, but, I couldn't let such a special day go by without sharing.
Sunday, my little Abigail turned 10. I can hardly believe how fast she is growing up. (sigh)

We started the day going out for breakfast and then Abby wanted to spend the day walking around historic Ellicott City. But, before that, we took a little detour to the mall (courtesy of Dad) to get those two girls their ears pierced. (see their little ears!) They had no idea until we were driving there! Abby was nervous at first, Chloe was not, and both were very excited. Now they can't wait to pick out their first pair of earrings.
Both Chloe and Abby have been asking for awhile to get their ears pierced, so we figured we couldn't have picked a better day!

I think it is so great that Abby still loves American Girl! Rebecca is the new friend to add to her collection.

Abby asked for a tea party with cupcakes. Our tea was a glorious sweet strawberry milk which was a perfect compliment to the chocolate cupcakes. (aqua cream cheese frosting with pink polka dots was a must)

She was so excited when she opened her gift from Chloe! Look at that smile!

Abby, I hope you had a great birthday and that all your wishes you wished for come true!

Hi Kelli,
Abby definitely looks like a happy ten year old. That age is so much fun and they just seem to have such a joy for life. Happy B-day to Abby.

Gracie was ten when she got her ears pierced too! I know she would love to go earring shopping with Chloe and you.

Happiest Birthday Wishes.
