Abby turns 11

Abby has been really wanting to learn how to knit.  For Christmas we got her a knitting class from JoAnn Fabrics.

A few days before her birthday was the day of her class.

She knew absolutely nothing about knitting when the class began.  And this is what she had knitted when I picked her up a few hours later!  So cool!

Since it was her birthday weekend I told her I would take her out for lunch after knitting

But she was completely surprised when Grandma


Ella and Anna showed up!

I completely loved watching her open her gifts

Here's why!

To top the day off, a shopping trip to the mall.

A few days later, on her "real" birthday.  Pappy and Grammy took us all out to dinner to celebrate.  We ended the evening back home to have birthday cake.

I'm thinking 11 years old is a pretty big deal!
