Maya Turns 11!

My 11th birthday was on Febuary 10th and it was great! Well first of all the contest prize for my Kidsube Halloween Video Contest was supposed to come on November but it came on my birthday! The prize was a case of Honest Kids Tropical Fruit Punch Juice Pouches and they tasted great! Then I had some red velvet cheescake (Yum!)! Of course I got great gifts from my family. I spent the rest of the day hanging out with my friends. Over all a great b-day!
