Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? Look Who's Growing Up!


Hi, all!

Friday has rolled around again - the third to the last in 2021!  Can you believe it?  Well, believe it or not, it still signals that it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, so let's get started!


Almost twelve years ago, when I started this blog, I introduced you this little charmer - my oldest granddaughter, Lilli.

Over the years, she has helped out in the studio...

...tried her hand at some other talents...

...become a big sister...

...started school....

...learned lots about being a good big sister...

...headed up a growing gang of cousins...


...hammed it up...

...developed a million dollar smile...

...kept on growing up (even though we told her to stop)...

She continues to ignore us, and yesterday this beauty....

...turned fourteen!!  I had so much fun going back through the blog to find pictures of her through the years - she has truly grown up here!

She's still got that million dollar smile, albeit with braces (which should come off in about a month or so!), and some has developed some serious baking skills...

...even making her own birthday cake!  

So I'm doing some serious happy dancing here as we celebrate Lilli's fourteenth birthday!

Can I get a whoop whoop?


And now it's your turn!

What's got you whooping it up this week?

What's making you do a little happy dance?

Share!  We want to dance right along with you,

And it's always more fun to dance with friends!

The party will stay open until Sunday midnight.

Hope to see you there!
