It's hard to believe Becky is already three. Seems just like yesterday she was born. We had a great time celebrating her birthday.
She got a tutu and matching shirt in her favorite color, purple, ...
... and a few other goodies.
I made Becky a play purse out of felt from this book...
... complete with lip stick, cell phone, ...
... and a wallet with a bank card. She won't leave home without it any more.
Isaac wrote her this hilarious card
Becky is still little enough to have trouble blowing out candles
For breakfast, she wanted the one thing I try to never serve around here: cereal. I'm not even talking the gross, toxic, sugary, dyed waste that most people think of when they think cereal - she just wanted some "honey hunch and hoats" (Becky starts most words with an "h" these days), and "Handa Huffs". Becky LOVES cereal - she would eat it all day long if I kept it in the house.
After more than two years without one, we finally renewed our zoo membership in time to take Becky there for her birthday. We have been there four times in the last two weeks! :)

The kids paid for their own camel rides: the boys from money they earn each week, Becky from the birthday money she was given by her big brothers, and Miriam was jointly paid for by her generous big brothers as well because they did not want her to miss out on the fun. These kids are so sweet.

What a little muffin!
We had a birthday party at church.
Annika just recently started pointing, and it is so cute.
The party was butterfly-themed, so for one game everyone had to cocoon a family member.
There were sugar cookies shaped like bugs and bees and flowers to decorate (and eat).
Side note: all natural food colors are not as colorful, but they get the job done.
Happy Birthday to our crazy child!
