Ruby Turned 3!!!

On March 21st Ruby turned 3 years old - our baby is now a little girl, who seemingly became so almost overnight. She bounces about the house in her pigtails, clothed in pink (98% of the time) and chats up a storm & sings all day.

We celebrated her birthday by having a little family party (just us) and viewing the new film Horton Hears a Who... which was very entertaining and made all of us, from the very small to the very tall, laugh out loud with unbridled glee. My personal favorite line in the film was "In my world, everyone would eat rainbows and poop butterflies." Maybe you have to see it to completely appreciate it??? Anyway, a great "G" rated film that got the Amick "two thumbs up".
Back at home, the kids & I had spent the day making homemade pizzas and... VEGAN CUPCAKES from our new cookbook (see blog previous to this one). Lucky little Ruby was the first to get to choose her birthday delight... which were Cookies & Cream Cupcakes & Gingerbread Cupcakes w/ Lemony Cream Cheese Frosting. They turned out fabulously yummy!
Ruby opened her gifts, her favorites being a Hello Kitty outfit from Grammi, some Monkey hair accessories, a Hello Kitty beginning phonics reading set of 12 books, and a wonderful wooden memory game called I Never Forget a Face. It teaches multi-culturalism to young children in a creative way. Mom way digs it!

She also was given a copy of a book she has often enjoyed from the library called Pinkalicious, a story about a girl who eats too many pink cupcakes and turns pink! Hmmmmmmmm???? There is also a sequel called Purplicious we have had fun reading.

Ruby celebrated her birthday in Sabbath school today, which was great fun. She was one of 5 children I sang the birthday songs to, and had prayer for - it nearly took up half of the program time for the day, but was delightful.
