I can't believe Nattie is 12 today! 12 years ago I was in Winchester Hospital (near Boston), thrilled to have our baby girl alive and healthy :) I was 24 years old (which seems so young now!) and we had only been living in the U.S. for 3 years. Iain and I had our green cards, but we were not yet citizens. Time has certainly flown by!
We let Nattie open her cards and presents last night since she leaves so early in the morning for school! Some of the things she received were a hairdryer, hair straightener, gift cards for Kohl's, Target and Barnes & Noble, clothes, and some cash! I see a shopping day in Nattie's future :) We went out to Coldstone Creamery for ice cream after school today, and on Saturday 3 of Nattie's friends are coming over. I'm taking them to see "High School Musical 3", then out to dinner at California Pizza Kitchen, then back here for a sleepover. It'll be a busy but fun day for the girls!
