Emma’s Birthday

We had Emma’s friend Birthday party on December 1st because I knew that things were going to be crazy after Cash was born.  However, we still made time to celebrate her Birthday on the actual day with family.  Thankfully Nana offered for us to celebrate at her house.  It was a good chance for all of us to get out of the house and her house was much cleaner than ours. :)

Here are some of the gifts waiting for Emma…

Before diving into Birthday festivities the kids got to open a Christmas/baby gift from our Cousin Carolyn who lives in Arizona.  She got the kids each Big Brother/Big Sister ornaments, an ornament for Cash, and some new pacis for Cash.  She is always so thoughtful…. we love our Carolyn.

One of Emma’s gifts from us… a Chinese Barbie Doll… we thought this would be a cool gift since Emma is learning to speak Chinese at school.

Emma’s Birthday cake was an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins… she picked it out on-line.  Daddy talked her into getting oreos n creme ice cream… she originally said plain ‘ol vanilla and we just couldn’t have that!

In true Emma fashion, she blew out the candle mid-way through us singing “Happy Birthday,” she is a non-conformist!
