Emma's Birthday

So, we didn't do a big birthday party for Emma's birthday...we didn't do anything really "big" as many would call "big." But I made her a birthday skirt and a special birthday cake...and at the end of the day, she told Ben and me, "I felt loved today." Which was what we had both been praying for anyway. When Ben asked her what made her feel so loved..."All the presents!!" Her big present from mom and dad: a hula hoop. Or as Caleb calls it, "A hulee hoop."

I did make her a birthday throne, by decorating a chair with streamers and balloons. is great to be five. Here is her skirt and her cake. She got to pick the fabric for her skirt, which is a print with ballerina outfits and shoes on it.

Okay, I'll try this again...

You didn't do anything "big?" Making a skirt and a doll cake is "big" to me because I can't sew and lately I haven't been into baking. Cute skirt and cake, you go mom!

Caleb's picture is too much...with the tool belt. I chuckled!

I can't believe the girls are 5. Just today Amber Shea said, "Mom, Emma and I look very alike." I agreed, remembering when they were babies and people used to think they were twins. Lisa, where has the time gone? Sniff, sniff.
