Though the celebrating started on Friday, Merry's actual birthday is today. Here are some scenes from her big eight.
|During children's church, the kids sang Happy Birthday to Merry. Travis seemed to enjoy the experience more than Merry.|
|Mama was feeling bad so Merry's birthday lunch morphed into burgers from Wendy's.|
|Merry's very first Lego set, a gift from big brother David.|
|Laura, Travis, and Patrick gave Merry a carrier for her new doll. Jim and I gave her a custom-made pony and a Hello Kitty toothbrush.|
|One of the fun things about living in the hood is the tradition of pinning money on people for their birthdays. Merry received $21 this way, enough to buy an outfit for her new Ayla "Our Generation" doll.|
