Yikes!! Do I ever feel old. Not really though. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am an adult because I sometimes feel like that 25 year old is still living in my body. 🙂
MaryEllen turned fourteen in January. Even she can’t believe she is fourteen!
We celebrated her birthday last Tuesday. It was a very cold day, so cold it snowed. Even in the low double-digit weather, daddy still grilled steaks for MaryEllen’s birthday dinner. I was too busy staying warm in the house that I didn’t get a picture. Donnie snapped these earlier that day.
MaryEllen baked a white cake and decorated it with the How To Train Your Dragon logo. I think it is from the cartoon
Dragons: Defenders of Berk.
I was taking this picture while we were singing Happy Birthday to her, but started laughing because I can only imagine how horrible we sounded, Don and I mainly. Poor MaryEllen! I am sure inside she wanted to cover her ears. 😀
I bought this dragon bracelet from Amazon. It is so pretty. MaryEllen loves dragons, and I wanted to get her something unique. I love the color.
We also got her another dragon book, Dracopedia The Great Dragons. She loves these books for inspiration. I love her smile in this picture. She has such a beautiful smile.
We ended the evening with watching How to Train Your Dragon. I think this is the third year, might be the fourth, that we have watched this movie on her birthday.
In June I believe they are coming out with another How To Train Your Dragon movie, so maybe next year we will be watching that one.
Well, that was our simple birthday. The coffee/bookshop was closed due to the weather, so next week we will take her there.
