Mercie is 3!

Sunday, Mercie turned 3 years old! We had a party here at the house, complete with Dora cupcakes and horse rides! One of our friends brought their horses over and rode the kids around. It was a huge hit!

I can't believe she is 3 already! She is a sweetheart. She talks really well, and all the time. She loves 'tats' (cats). She loves to watch Dora. She is hilarious!! Before she goes to sleep each time she HAS to say, "You smell like the rainbows" to me and I have to say it back. Then she says, "You and me are sliding down the rainbows." She starts out in her own bed at night but always ALWAYS winds up in ours before morning. She loves to be outside and she loves to swing and slide on the swingset. She does NOT stay clean longer than 5 minutes a day; dirt jumps on her like a magnet. She loves Silas and calls him 'buddy'. She loves drinking from a sippy cup, and when she's sleepy, she twirls her hair while drinking. She loves to go to walmart. She loves to color and draw (often times, on the wall...or her bed...or the floor...) She's as stubborn as mule. She's as sweet as an angel. I don't know what I'd do without my Mercie girl!

 Her birthday present, and yes she can zoom around fast on that bike.
 Mercie and her handsome daddy.

 Mikaela and Bryton.

               And I wanted to add this one in of Silas. He can now pull up to a standing position!

Mercie has been a great joy for the past 3 years. I love to feel her little hands around my neck and hear her sweet voice whisper, "i love u nana". Ahh. that's just too much!

She has an 8 year old big sister and a 5 year old big brother who ride without training wheels, and she's had several riding toys. She just picked it up really fast! She loves to be outside and do outdoorsy things, so it just came natural!
