Happy 3rd Birthday, Mercy Girl!

Today was Mercy's third birthday.  It's hard to believe that we have had the blessing and privilege of being her parents for a full three years now.

Mercy's 1st Birthday

Though we aren't really doing a party this year, her birthday is somewhat of a drawn out affair.  On Wednesday evening she got to go out for an ice cream with her cousin Timothy (who she adores) while we were visiting my mom.  Today we did cake and presents.  Tomorrow we'll do ice cream again.  She has a coupon for a free one at a local place.

Mercy's 2nd Birthday

And this year...

 Me working frantically on finishing her Pooh Bear cake on time.  Wearing my new maternity apron from Bon Appetit Aprons.  I love it!  Watch for a review and giveaway soon!

It really works!
