Birthday Card for Heather

My oldest is 12 today, and it just seems like yesterday I was in labor with her.
She was a wonderful baby.
I think that's why we decided to have more.
How we forget what labor is like until we get in the delivery room again!!!
I can't believe how time REALLY flys!

Heather loves pink and cupcakes so I thought I would use my Bella cupcakes and make her a card!!!
Very simple but turned out wonderful!!She will love it!
She gets out of chores today and gets to pick dinner!
I am hoping her choice is better then my other daughters, PB&J and mac n cheese!!
What is your birthday traditions? I would love to hear what you do!

It's funny cause I was thinking about when I was a kid, for our birthdays we always had cake and presents. Not alot of family just my brother, sister and parents.
Now my hubby on the other hand, birthdays weren't a big deal.
He always said he was lucky if anyone was home because his birthday was in June.
So he spent his birthday with his parents and most of the other kids were gone
because school was out! At least he got out of dish duty!LOL

I will be back later to post the card for my mom!

Okay Dawn, First off wish Heather a Happy Birthday from me. Now my tradition on my boys birthday was to make them a special breakfast, and on Ryan's Birthday last week I had to get up at 4:30 in the a.m. To make this years traditional meal. Oh yeah, I always take a picture, this way I have proof. LOL
