She's 4!



Friday was Emily's 4th birthday (and my Aunts and her mother's and Leah's..Happy Birthday!)
How cute is this cake? I showed Mary A. what I wanted and she duplicated it! It looks just like the picture. It was super good too. Thanks Mary, I LOVE LOVE LOVED it!
Emily only ate specks of the icing. She still doesn't eat chocolate, candy, ice cream, etc. Crazy!
She got a checkup and shots on her actual birthday:) (Ava did too). That night she opened presents from family. I'll post another time all that stuff and a picture of the really cool crocheted things my Aunt Karen sent her and Ava (made by Tina)!
Yesterday (Saturday) was her party at the store. Everyone painted pottery, then she opened presents and had cake. She received lots of dinosaur things from us and her friends.
Hard to believe I birthed that little angel 4 years ago.
I can't put into words how much I love her. It's just not possible.
Before I had children I always said I only wanted girls.
I wanted to do for them what I lost out on, with my mom dying when I was 5.
I got exactly what I wanted.. twice!
I am the luckiest girl in the world:)

Happy birthday Emily! Your babies are darn adorable and it shows how much you love them in all your posting about new things you made for them and places you take them etc. They're very lucky girls to have a mommy like you.

It doesn't seem possible that she is already 4. (going on 24) You're a great mom, the girls are darling, it's nice to be able to say life is good! I am happy for you and Jon and wishing you many more happy kid raising years.

Happy birthday, Emily! I can't believe she is 4. Time really flies. Looks like it was a great party - more fun than anything I probably had for a birthday party growing up. The girls are so lucky to have you as their mom. They may not know it now, but one day, the will be amazed at how hard you worked to make growing up so special for them. =)

The cake is so cute! I bet it was delicious. If only I'd known it was a dinosaur themed party I would've brought her something more reptile like, but I'd had the gift months before her bday, just to make sure I wouldn't forget to pick something up later! But, the party seemed to have made a great turn-out and looked like everyone was enjoying themselves.
I didn't want to forget to give her the gift, I should've given to you last Thurs, but I thought she'd mentioned it was Saturday, so I figured we'd stop by your shop and deilver it before we headed to the theater eventhough I had no idea what time you were throwing it. So sorry to have showed up unexpectedly and crashed the party! Was hoping we'd make it before hand so we wouldn't have interrupted. Oh well...
BTW- how much is it to paint pottery there? Do y'all have any ceramic napkin holders? I need to get(or paint) a black one to match our dinnerware...or i'll just look for something else. :) See ya soon.

That video made me cry. Selfishly, I have to say, I can't wait for you to move back. I know, ladies, you will miss my little sis (and her adorable babies), but now it's my turn :)
