Marinne is 12!

This pretty girl turned 12!  How am I old enough to have a child this age?
We had a family party on her birthday.  Ray grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, and Costco made the cake, since I was burned out with the cake making.
 She got her bedroom redone, a ticket to see Wicked, and other cute stuff from family and friends, but I think her favorite gift was being allowed to get a facebook account.

That Friday night, she had a friend party complete with Justin Bieber cupcakes and everything purple.

They made headbands, thanks to Aunt Natalli who provided the materials and made a bunch of flowers for them!


We played a "get to know you" candy game, and Just Dance on the Wii.

Marinne and a candle-lit Justin!
The Young Women came and decorated her room.  I'm excited for her to be in Young Women's!  She already got to do baptisms at the temple and go to girls' camp. 
Wasn't I just doing all of that for the first time? 
Happy Birthday Marinne!

Her room looks really cute! I swear I just got "heart-attacked" myself. I guess I'm not 12 anymore.
