Girl Day!

This year, instead of a party for Abby's birthday, we had a girl day out.

Abby was rather nervous aobut geting her ears pierced, but determined to be brave.

That wasn't so bad!  She picked out these sweet colorful flowers - just like her.

Then it was off to see Mr. Poppers Pinguins (It was cute despite staring Jim Carry) and ice cream at Cold Stone.  Thanks for the treat Grammy Debbie!

Abigail wanted to make her own birthday cake this year and she did a great job.  She did it all, from baking to making the fondant to decorating.  Nice job!  Being a pastry chef like Aunt Laura sounds like a wonderful idea :)

Happy Birthday to my sweet 11 yo girl.

Happy Birthday Abby

The festivities started Saturday when Grammy and Grandpa Betz brought Abigail a new bike.  It was purple of course and she was completely thrilled.

This year Abby decided she wanted to make her birthday cake herself - and she did.

 Here she is after making the fondant (a type of edible dough used in cake decorating)  Pretty much the whole kitchen looked the same way!

Miriam was her trusty assistant and photographer for the fondant making.
