Emma turns 6 years old on December 18th but we decided to have her Friend Birthday party a little bit early this year since Cash is due on December 12th. I was really praying that Cash would wait until after Emma’s Birthday party to arrive… and he did! Yippee! Emma’s party was on Saturday, December 1st at The Purple Glaze Pottery Studio. She invited several friends from school, church, and our neighborhood. It was good little group of girls and I think everyone had a good time… although I was exhausted when it was over!
Emm and BFF Aubrey with their aprons on… all ready to paint!
Foster waiting for the party to begin. He loves to paint so we let him participate. Nana was in charge of helping him during the party! :)
Here are some of the girls waiting for instructions after picking their ceramic pieces to paint. Emma picked a tiny star box to hold a special piece of jewelry.
One of the workers explaining to the girls how to paint the ceramic pieces that they chose!
The girls listening to the instructions… they look kind of scared!

Aunt Judy was a HUGE help during the party!
Foster painted a pretty horse, or “mustang.”
Apparently Foster decided to taste the paint briefly. No big deal, Nana just wiped it off of his tongue with a paper towel!
After the girls finished their pottery they moved to another table for cake and ice cream. We had a “Lalaloopsy” theme for the party. I used to think the dolls were kind of weird and creepy but now they have really grown on me!
Emma got really really shy when we sang Happy Birthday to her. I really had to push her to blow out her candle!
Emma got so many nice gifts! It’s always funny to listen to the other girls’ comments with the Birthday girl opens her gifts. :)
Here are the finished pottery pieces!

A few of the girls hung out for a little bit after the party to color some Lalaloopsy coloring sheets. Emma LOVES to color!
We had a great time celebrating Emma’s Birthday and now we have a few days to recover before Cash’s arrival and a few weeks to recover before Christmas! We love you Sweet Emma! We are thankful that God blessed you with sweet friends who love you as much as we do. :)
