Another Birthday

Can you believe Miss Lucy is now eleven? I can't. I've noticed a big change in her this last year or so and next year she will be off to High School after the summer.

She had a great party at home with a few of her friends and much laughter. I had to do a rush job on a cake for her too - this is a 'Twilight' themed cake (based on the books by Stephanie Meyer - which I thoroughly recommend). It was different than my original idea because I had a slight icing sugar 'incident' :-) Miss Lucy liked it anyway, so all was well.



She was not expecting to get an Ipod Shuffle and I think she was rather excited...



I don't know why she suddenly looks so grown up. Soon she won't want jelly and ice-cream or pass the parcel...sniff, sniff. Don't you wish sometimes you could just stop time?



I will have more of this sort of scene to look forward to I guess!

Happy Birthday to Lucy!
Who, you are right, is looking much more grown up - but will still love jelly etc, I'm sure.
Your cake looks great, well done!

Yeah, I have an 11-year old who spends much time welded to the Nintendo. And who would have appreciated a Twilight cake. But at least yours lets you photograph her :) mine's very stroppy about that (among other things!)
