Hannah’s 12th Birthday

Has it been 12 years already? I really feel old now. It was a busy day yesterday. Hannah has been sick for over two weeks, which is probably why she looks thin – or more so than usual. So yesterday was her first time in the gym in over 2 weeks. After that, we all had a early dinner with cake and presents and off to her dance recital.
