Sunday, October 20th was Mercy's 3rd birthday. I can't believe she's 3 already. Time is going by too, too fast.
We only do "big" parties for birthdays number 1, 5, 10, etc. Not every one. So this was just our family and Mike's dad. We had church in the morning and then Grace had CCD and then we all just ate dinner and presents and cake. Here's a photo story of the evening.
|Waiting for presents. Happy Birthday kiddo!|
|Normal photo op for the girls. Sillies.|
|I swear she constant thinks she's adopted.|
|Opening gift from Grampa|
|CARD! Mercy was way more excited about cards than presents. In fact, she's been carrying cards around the house, and to daycare, ever since her birthday. She said she wants birthday cards for Christmas.|
|Opening gift from Grammy & Pappy.|
|And another card! WOOT!|
|Yelling at Grace cause Grace wanted to help her read the card.|
|Screw the present. She had a card!|
|Holding it up for everyone to see.|
|Finally to the present.|
|Wooden "paper dolls"|
|Her own Barbie from Mom & Dad|
|We interrupt this birthday for a call from someone (Maybe Grammy & Pappy, I can't remember) to sing happy birthday.|
|Candy Land from Mom & Dad|
|She wanted a pink cake. That was all the direction she gave me. I think it turned out pretty good!|
|Singing to the birthday girl|
|Making a wish|
|Oh and I made the cake "ombre". I did cheat and use a box mix and pre-made icing. The icing was gross. Ugh. But everyone liked it!|
Now we enter the wonderful 3 year old phase. And I'm totally not being serious. Three-year-olds are the devil. Wish us luck.
