Maralee Turns 8

It's hard to believe Maralee is 8 years old!! Her birthday was yesterday and I think she had a good one. We made cupcakes in ice cream cones for her class, and after school we took her to Montrose. We told her we would take her anywhere she wanted for dinner, and she still picked McDonald's. I think we've had McDonald's for her birthday every year since she turned 3 or so. I don't feel bad about taking her there, though, because we hardly ever eat fast food and she probably only gets a Happy Meal 3 or 4 times a year now.
Maralee picked out a Schwinn bike at Target and is really excited to start riding it. This will be perfect to ride in the park this summer!

I bet she'll be happy when the snow clears enough for riding that cool bike!

Any park or trail that hosts this bike and its rider will be thrilled! Maralee picked out one spiffy bicycle! IF I were ever to take up skiing, I'd want a pair of those boots with pink flowers.

Awwww! Happy Birthday Maralee!
That Tinkerbell cake is adorable!
Mmm! But that chocolate cake is calling to me. Yummo!
Maralee, you must be one very special young lady to get TWO cakes. hehehe!

That's a sweet picture of the two of you. Does Maralee join you for skiing, too? I bet she can't wait to try out that beautiful bike. Congrats and Happy 8th Birthday!
