8 years ago today......

...welcomed the most beautiful little girl into our family.

Emily Amanda..

She is now a beautiful, strong, confident, soccer-playing, ice-skating,swimming, energetic 3rd. grader.

Wow! Time files..

And 'Mr. B and me' will be there for the birthday week-end. Haven't missed too many of these..(it conveniently falls near the Labor Day week-end...)

So this year, we are celebrating her birthday with a private party on Friday night after we arrive. She will later have her "girly-girlfriend" party (other little friends are usually not around on because of the holiday, so Emily has her birthday PARTY the first week-end in September)

This year, they will be going to a "paint-your-plate" place in the mall.

Decorating dinnerware.. huh,,,sounds fun!

Last year, they all went and got manicures. totally F.U.N

Her Mom, my little-grown-up girl, April, has always done really fun and unique things for the birthday parties.

Cakes with Teddy Grahams in bathing suits, frolicking in a jello-blue pool on top of a chocolate cake..sleep-overs, skating parties, you name it.

So, Happy Birthday Emily...G-ma & G-pa love you very much!!
