Happy Birthday Emily

That's right, we've got a teenager in the house!  As per tradition, Emily is making her own cake and this year she is graciously letting her siblings "help."  Oh yes, this takes much patience and kindness and I am so proud of her as I look at these pictures.


Can you hear Isaac?  "I help? Please?"


Great job kids!  Love this so much.


Another birthday cake on the books.


Emily had big plans for a pool party with her friends and grandparents.  Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and the girls only got to swim for an hour before a torrential downpour.  It's was fine though, we just headed back to the house for cake and presents.  The girls ended up playing Emily's new game, Name 5 and there was a lot of giggles and smiles so we'll call it a win!


If I can pull from my memory the presents included the new Harry Potter book written in movie script form, new Edge Chronicle books, a stuffed animal, a rosary bracelet, a How to Train Your Dragon book... yes, books still make her happy.  Not much has changed!




And the live action... just like you were there!  And many more,,,,
