....Birthday season in the Pierson house!! Between April 19th and June 18th, we had the birthdays of one adult (not me) and three children! That means:
Three special birthday meals at home and one birthday meal at Dewey's Pizza...
One birthday cake and three cookie cakes...
Four dozen sugar cookies for classroom celebrations...
Three kids' birthday parties, complete with two dozen cupcakes (each)...
And lots and lots of planning, shopping, wrapping, preparing and cleaning up!!

* When Gregory and Ruthie were in a school performance, they were on stage with a huge group of kids. Mary couldn't find them on stage. She turned to me, very worried, and said, "Oh No! Our kids are missing!"
*Mary and I went to Gary's office to meet him for lunch. On the way, we talked about what we were doing, but when we got off the elevator, Gary walked toward us, and Mary said to him, "Hey! What are YOU doing here?"
*We met a dog at the local coffee shop. Mary said, "Hi Doggie. Do you do tricks? Because I do tricks." She then proceeded to spend the next 5 minutes showing the dog all her tricks!
*Her favorite expression is, "What the heck?" I have to tell you, it's so funny, coming from a 2 year old. Sometimes now she shortens it to "What the...?" and that's even funnier!
*When we ask her to do things (like give us hugs) and she doesn't feel like it, she says, "No, I can't. My batteries are broken."
*When the sun is in her eyes, or water from the bath gets in them, she'll squeeze her eyes tight and scream, "I can't see my eyes! I can't see my eyes!"
*Yesterday she wanted to go to McDonald's for dinner, and she said, "Can we got to Old McDonald had a farm?"
Mary's a hoot and we all adore her! I'm so thankful that she is the child who completed our family!

(May 23rd was Ruthie's 8th birthday. I was having trouble with this blog, so just today I'm posting my gratitude post from last Friday.)
Monday was Ruthie's birthday, and I'm so thankful that the Lord saw fit to give her to me!! I'm not sure if you read my post about Gregory, but as much as Gregory is like me, Ruthie is not. Ruthie takes after Gary to an unbelievable degree! She's quiet and pensive. She's long and lanky. She prefers vanilla over chocolate, and she calls Mary "honey", just liker her dad and grandpa! She's also as low maintenance as the day is long (a good balance to the other two!!)! She's a beauty in every sense of the word, and I am so blessed.
Happy Birthday, dear sweet Ruthie!! I love you!!
