More pictures of Maria's birthday

Maria asked for a birthday party this year. The birthday parties here have got to be the easiest to plan, and put on, imaginable. We have such a wonderful courtyard for the kids to play, and there are tons of bicycles, tricycles, and a new sandbox for all the kids, I couldn't keep them inside, even at a party, if I wanted to. So we took all our goodies to a downstairs common room that has multiple doors looking out for moms to watch the kids, we sang happy birthday with tall the many, many friends Maria has here, ate some cake, and let the kids do what they do best...play outside with their friends until they drop from exhaustion. My kids have a good life here.

There are so many kids here, Maria got two cakes for her party. She requested strawberry cake with strawberry frosting. I only had enough red food coloring to make the frosting pink on one cake, but I liked the strawberry bits peeking out on the other one.

Thomas was VERY hungry looking at the cake....

Books from Grandma and Papou.

And for after dinner, Maria requested strawberry shortcake cake. Although I don't think she even cared about the shortcake, or the icing. She asked for just the bowl of strawberries I put on the table to top the cake. Someone takes after her Great-grandfather (or Big Papou, as she calls him)!
