Happy Three-And-A-Half-Birthday Merry!

Today we made our first attempt at celebrating Merry on a day other than her actual birthday.  It’s going to be interesting for her to share her birthday with the day we celebrate our Lord’s birthday!  We celebrate her on her “real birthday” and had a neighborhood cupcake party today with cherry lemonade and jumping in the jumphouse.
This is our attempt at making sure she doesn’t get lost in the holiday shuffle.  We want to make sure that over the years she knows that when God decided to bless our family with her, we were excited indeed!

Merry is indeed reason to celebrate!  She is growing up into quite the lady.  I asked her if she wanted spaghetti for her half-birthday dinner and she said, “no, I want pasta.”

Today during our history lesson we were talking about Adam and Eve eating the fruit off the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and she points to the picture of the serpent and informs all of us that Adam and Eve ate it AND the serpent ate some too.  Interesting.  Of course she’s getting her theological stance from the pictures in their history book.

Here’s a picture of her I took of her holding a HUGE zucchini I got out of our garden today, and below that, posing with her new friend and Jesse (her toy from Toy Story):
