mckenna turns a very chocolatey twelve.

Cooking gear for this newly-turned 12 year-old, who plans to one day open up her own bakery/restaurant!  She also received the cutest little sock monkey mittens from one set of grandparents and a giant 3D puzzle {that I have a feeling will soon take over my life} from the other set of grandparents.

According to McKenna, it was a fun day at school and everyone seemed to know it was her birthday, even the librarian!  Her friends sang to her at lunch and then again on the bus ride home.  Ah, to be twelve again.  I am just so happy for her.  She really is just a great kid and has made the coolest friends since we moved here.  Last year, her birthday party included only a few new friends and was more like a getting to know you party with cake and ice cream.  This year, it's all comfort and excitement with the same friends {and quite a few more} who she's gotten to know so well over time.  It's bound to be a fun party weekend, I have no doubt!

A very happy birthday to my little monkey-butt {who is not so little anymore}!


  1. Awww what a fun idea, and it looks delish!

    Happy Birthday McKenna! :)

    1. Thanks, Hallie! It was pretty darn yummy. Fortunately, it was filling too, so I didn't over-do myself! Darn New Year's resolutions to eat better. :)


Thinking about leaving a comment? That would be so awesome! In fact, you are so awesome!
