Mare's 9th Birthday Pics

She and her daddy kicked off the celebration by getting donuts together before school.

I decorated the table and the house while she was at school. The twins "helped" me make the cake.

The boys had a hard time understanding that while they *did* choose these balloons for their sister, they really had no claim upon them.

After school, Mary chilled for a little while before going out to dinner.
We went to the Cheesecake Factory, per her request. She got cheese pizza. And a Sprite.

We came home, where we put aside our better judgement and allowed Tyce to light the candles.
She made a wish.
She loved all of her presents but was particularly thrilled to receive her own Fenton bowl from Mopsie's collection.
She said she had a great birthday.

And now she can look forward to her friend party on Saturday!
