Birthday Extravaganza

Emma turned the Big One on Saturday 8th. The fact that she's one still continues to surprise me. On the one hand it doesn't seem possible that an entire year has flown by, while on the other I don't remember what our life was like before Emma-it feels as though she has always been a part of our family. I can vaguely recall what if was like to sleep past 5:30am during the week and 6:30am on weekends . . .but loss of sleep is a small price to pay to have Emma in my life. (Jeremy doesn't suffer from any loss of sleep so I don't see any downside for him! :) )

She had a very big birthday. She was so excited by all of the preparations that she refused to take a nap and was fighting the inevitable crash by about 3pm. She was strong though and held out until 5:30!

Some pics of her party:








The Birthday Girl


The cake . . . Are you picking up on the theme yet? I designed the cake myself, thank you very much, but Ambrosia gets credit for baking it. And yes, it tasted as good as it looked. The leftovers are killing my weight loss goals . . . I have no willpower . . .





Emma LOVED her cake!
