Just like with LB, we took Emma out for CFA breakfast on the day of her birthday. She enjoyed taking a few of her coloring books she got at her birthday party the night before.
The kids have thoroughly been enjoying their gifts. Its not unusual these days for the two of them to work on their coloring first thing in the morning and throughout the day.
Emma likes to have tea parties a lot, and has a happy participant at her table often. How lucky those two are to have each other! I normally mix some grape juice with water for their tea, and then serve them some crackers or fruit for their snack. Always a hit!
The Wedding! Much anticipated family event. And a huge hit! Kids had a lot of fun. So much so, that LB fell and busted his nose. We thought it may have gotten broken. Thankfully at the reception (where it took place), there were a number of pediatricians and dentists (and pediatric dentist) who were able to look at him. It kept us from taking him to the ER that night. None of this was pictured. But daddy Byron's shirt got covered in blood.

Emma got to wear the same dress her big cousin McNeill wore at our wedding 8 years ago as a flour girl. She got lots of compliments.
And we got to hang out with Ames!!!!
A few days after the wedding I took out our wedding album to show Emma our own wedding pictures. When she saw McNeill in the dress she wore at her uncle's wedding, she asked: "Mommy, is this Emma?"
Kids playing with the bubble machine they got for their birthday. FUN!
Only six days after he fell at the wedding and busted his nose the first time, he somehow managed to run into the wall at the house while playing with big sister and bust it again. I did get it pictured this time. Byron and I are amazed how often he falls and injures himself. In the words of Dr. James Dobson, it's a miracle boys grow up without killing themselves in the process.
Dinner at our new home normally ends with the kids in one of our laps. LB likes to get himself comfortable... quite comfortable! I guess when you live out in the country, lots of things are now allowed.
