Delaney's 12th Birthday!
My firstborn is now a 12 year old.....it's unbelievable to me. I will try to write something sweet and caring, but I'm smack in the middle of birthday prep. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to wrap presents. I am also in the process of baking her a chocolate cake from scratch (she is a huge chocoholic, like her mom and gram). That said, this batter is TERRIBLE. I'm hoping that is not a precursor to a horrible cake. If so, I'll have to make a quick run to the store for the tried and true Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines cake mix. The recipe does not call for eggs, which seems quite odd to me. Reviews to come :)
Anyway- 12 years have certainly flown by. My daughter is about 5'4" these days, and has the same size foot as myself. She claims to have superior taste in clothing, although I wouldn't necessarily agree. She is 12 going on 16, but I'm going to force her to stay 12 for the next few years- I'm so not ready for a teenager in the house. She's a wonderful daughter (most days), a great big sister, and a true friend to many (as is clear from the amount of phone calls she receives.....).
Happy Birthday Delaney!
