Today our Mary Genevieve turned six years old!
She is a spitfire who keeps us on our toes. In every way imaginable, Mary is always climbing to the top . . . of any tree, building, or accomplishment! If there is any reason to invest in stocks in the paper industry, our little Mary's prolific production of drawings and letters every day is a good reason!
|Yesterday, when I replied back to the love note Mary left me on the white board, |
she asked perplexed, "But how did you know the note was from me?"
Mary's grandparents had come for a visit and everyone started off the day with a breakfast of bagels and strawberries. Then Mary opened her much-awaited gifts.
. . . and pink kitten slippers! Does it get better than that?
But you know she's also still just six when she turns the box into a robot and plays with it for an hour!
Grandmom and the girls spent an enjoyable time together making her famous applesauce before we headed to the ice rink for a couple hours of skating.

For her birthday dinner, Mary requested fettuccine Alfredo with Mama's homemade sauce, sweet Italian sausage, and salad, and, for dessert, baked pears with vanilla ice cream. (Looking at her birthday blog post from last year, I see she requested almost the identical dinner and the very same dessert then too!)
|Mary blew out her candles the instant we handed her the dessert, while we were still singing.|
|So excited, she can hardly stand it!|
