Sixteen years ago today, my Julie-pie was born. She doesn't want to be sixteen; she liked being 15 and she wouldn't mind being 17, but the whole "sweet sixteen" thing is just not her.

I found these pictures of her when she was 7, playing in my garden in California. Maybe now you can understand the "not sixteen" thing!

She has always liked green. I made the little dress for her and the little Robin Hood hat.

You'll have to indulge me: I couldn't figure out which picture not to post, so...

But now she is somewhere between 15 and 17. Has she changed? Uh, no, not much! Kirstin took these photos of her today.

She loves the green of the forest. And still enjoys a good costume.

And I still make dresses for her. She may not like the "sweet sixteen" stuff, but, you know what ... she really is a sweetie.

And a very beautiful Julie-pie.

Have a beautiful day!

My baby turned 13 yesterday! And we have a robin hood costume in the attic that i made for my son. What memories. I hope Julie had a great birthday. She is beautiful.

These are adorable pictures. I see the resemblance to Robin Hood, however, I also see the resemblance to an elf (or is it a Hobbit?). Very, very cute.

Thank you for sharing!
