Kudos to those of you who kept your blogs up to date during December. I barely checked my email, let alone updated the blog. So, here's what we did during December, starting with...
Per Emma's request, I made a Dora cake. It was an adventure. I'll leave it at that. Emma loved her cake which made it all worthwhile.
Opening gifts from faraway family was very exciting. Especially when they put Star Wars stickers on their cards. The girls love Star Wars. Yes, this is Ryan's influence.
By the time her guests were leaving, Emma had collapsed in a tired heap on the floor. Birthdays are so tiring!
she got a flute! Still don't know why she wanted one so much, but she loves it. (Thank you Dollartree!)
Blowing out birthday candles is too fun to do only once. We sang again and enjoyed ice cream.
Happy birthday Emma! Our "baby" no longer. (Oh, man - there's no crying in blogging!)
