Wonderful! Do you feel older? A little.
I've had a really fun day!! What have you done? Well we went to the beach and to a really good seafood restaurant. And I went to a store and got a purse. It's one of those long ones that go across your body and it's white and pretty and shaped like a heart.
Yes. I'm super glad to be here. The beach is about the greatest place you could be.
The beach for sure.
I think walking on the beach and the beach house was probably my favorite.
And I liked spending time with my relatives and it was the first time I got to stay up all the way until midnight on New Year's Eve.
A lot. In fact I don't even really think about our old house.
Oh yes! There's a girl in the neighborhood named Makenzie. She's like my best friend there.
What's your favorite recreational activity? Probably playing outside with Makenzie.Probably a singer. If that doesn't work out, a fashion designer.
392 392? Well, at least a LOT of children!
What is your favorite thing to do? I love to draw! (I have to add that Mary is an incredibly talented artist - on any medium - including our sidewalk. The only bad thing about that is that the rain washed it away.)
What is your favorite thing to do with your friends? Probably make up a story and act it out like we're famous movie stars or something.
What do you love most about your sibling? Well, they know really good games to play.
What was the nicest thing you did for someone? Probably that I donated my hair.
What else can you tell us about yourself that we haven't covered in this interview? I wish I didn't have glasses. And I hope my hair grows fast. I kind of like to dress up in dresses during school but in summer I do shorts and T shirts. I love animals. I'd love to have a pet turtle or fish or something like that. What's your favorite animal? I'd say turtles or dolphins or horses.
As always, there's lots more I can tell you about this wonderful girl. She's sweet, compassionate, and loving.
She's an avid reader, a dedicated runner, and an amazing artist.
She's smart, loves to help with any project, truly has a heart of gold, and she's growing up way too fast.We're very proud of Mary and we love her very much! We're also wishing her the happiest of birthdays and can't wait until the next time we see her. Happy Birthday, Mary!
