Marlee becomes an adult


My baby turned 18.
 
Crazy!!!
 
 

 
I made her a Reese's candybar cake & got her the first four seasons of Fringe, our latest obsession.
 
But what she wanted most for her birthday, was to go skydiving.
And somehow I ended up getting talked into doing it too!
 
 
It was insane! And we both want to do it again!
 
 
But on her actual birthday, she did this....
 
....on our way to Disneyland,
 
 
and had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory when we got there.
 
 
I try not to focus on the fact that she will be gone in a few short months. That the days of having all of my kids at home is coming to a close. Gone forever. Chapter closed. It's freaking me out!!!
 
Happy Birthday Mars!!
 
I'm SO proud of you & your many talents & accomplishments. You've set the bar high for your sibs & I'm glad. You are beautiful inside and out, and I'm going to miss you like crazy when you leave our nest. I love you!  Love, Mom

Happy Birthday Marlee!
I LOVE the cake!

You are a better man...er mom than me. I don't think I could jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

How is it possible that we are old enough to have seniors?!? It seems like just yesterday they were going to preschool with Teacher Vicki (who we bump into from time to time) and playing dress up.

You deserve mom of the year for jumping out of an airplane! It takes all sorts of interesting remedies and the promise of landing in Cabo to get me to board a plane voluntarily.
