Mercy's 3rd Birthday

Our precious little Mercy turned 3 years old on Thursday, November 15, 2012. She had been talking about her birthday for weeks and telling us that her birthday was tomorrow. She was sooo excited about her birthday! Daniel took her to pre-school in the morning and they stopped at Wades grocery on the way to get Doughnut holes for her to share with her class. She was wearing a cute paper crown and was on cloud 9 when he brought her home. Since I was still not up to making a cake, Daniel was able to stop at Dairy Queen after work and get her this small ice cream cake. She was quite excited about it!
Nana was also staying with us and got to help Mercy celebrate her special day!

Licking her candles, YUM!

She was so excited about getting her present from us.

It was a set of brunette bitty twins that Mommy
found on ebay for her.

I can't begin to describe just how precious you are. You are tiny and sweet as you can be. You have really found your voice this year and have become very outgoing. You have begun to realize that you are part of a big family and will make sure that you are heard. Your vocabulary is great and despite your small size, you are so very smart and mature for your age. You talk so good and have such a sweet voice. You are very obedient and play so well with your siblings for such a young girl! Your favorite color is currently purple and you play with dolls more than your other toys. You also spend quite a bit of time coloring, changing outfits and playing whatever your older siblings are playing. You love playing hide'n seek with them. You started sharing a room and sleeping in a bed with Grace this year. Your hair is very long for a girl your age and Mommy loves putting bows in it. You are such a good girl and everyone who meets you adores you, especially your pre-school teachers, Ms. Lisa and Ms. Jo. You are very babied at pre-school because of your small size and the older girls love leading you around and sometimes even toting you around:-).  You love to pray and do so everytime you get the opportunity. Your latest prayer is to pray for everyone you know to grow up and have a baby:-). Your Daddy and I are so proud of you and are so thankful that God gave us the gift of raising you! I love you with all my heart! Love, Mommy (or Mom as you often call me:-)
