After we returned from Vermont we celebrated Ceara's 12th birthday. We had a small family celebration with cake and ice cream, then she had her friends spend the night on a different night. Jeff decided to just take her shopping to let her pick out her own clothes instead of us buying stuff she didn't like (we tend to do that a lot with both girls because they are so picky about what they want!).
Conor was eyeing the cake, anxious for a piece for himself.
So what does a pre-teen get for her birthday? Lots of cards with money in them, of course! Apparently we are not the only ones who can't pick out what to get young girls!
Conor got these glasses in a treat bag at his baby-sitter's house - just a gag gift sort of thing.
Ceara had to try them on, too, and she just looked so cute that Conor had to give her a great big hug! Or, maybe he wanted his glasses back...
Here they both are with Nana. I took a lot of pictures like this one, but didn't seem to get anyone else that was at the party! I do have a couple that I didn't take but blogger won't let me upload them right now! So... these will have to do for now. :)
