Emmi didn't like the cake...not even a little bit. But she made sure Jake got a taste!
Our family...ironically an accurate picture of our personalities. sigh.
Rachel...did I do ok on the decor?
My B-day girl just lounging in her favorite chair.
Emmi's party was a huge success thanks to Jake, Emmi, and our dear dear friends here in Atlanta. Jake helped me recover from the melt down over the "1" shaped cake being backwards and Emmi was a total mellow partier which made for an easy evening.
One of the party highlights was our "How well do you know Emmi" questionnaire.
My favorite question was:
Where did Emmi get her red hair from?
C. The Milkman
D. Who knows?
Surprisingly...we got a lot of milkman responses. Hahahaha.
Happy Birthday Emmi Dear!
*promise this is the last of the Birthday posts. PROMISE!
(my little squirt...who'd a thunk her hair would turn out red!?)
(she IS sitting in that pumpkin)
Oct 24 at 11:34 am you made your grand entrance. Your life in the last year has been amazing to watch. You gave us a scare at the beginning, but we should've known you would be fine; you're stubborn like that. You are so unique to us and your personality has really started to shine. You are my little pumpkin head. You are my thinker, my ponderer, my LOVER bug. In the years to come I know you and I will be so very close. You are my stalwart oldest child and I can already see you being my sidekick as we venture to expand our family. Thanks for willing to be the first kiddo. I'm sure when you drew that short stick you were still so willing and happy to be the "trial and error" kid. Your dad and I HAD a parenting plan, but we soon realized how much we didn't/don't know. Heavenly Father has blessed you with so many gifts, and melting our hearts is one of them. I tripped over your gosh darn baby gate last night and you immediately crawled over to me and gave me a hug and wiped your snotty nose all over my shoulder. Thanks Pumpkin. You understand emotions so well and you love to make it all better. Never stop giving us hugs...ok?
Thats about all I can say for Emmi's pictures from the pumpkin patch. She experienced it. She would not smile for me. Not even a little tiny Emmi grin. Maybe its all the teething, because most of the pics she is sucking furiously on her tooth. She was laughing hysterically on the car ride there because of her pal Owen, but I think the sight of so many HUGE orange things made her skeptical.
Fun fact: Owen was the first person to ever make Emmi laugh when she was a tiny baby and he still can get this girl to belly laugh.
I've had that Klondike jingle rolling around in my head for days. Emmi had the flu for days. Sooo...I sang "what would you do-oo for a long nap?" or "what would you do-oo for a poop-less diaper" etc. etc.
This is what we di-ii-id for the sick week.
And when sick week was over I let Emmi rock her birthday shoes. She loves them. When shes in her carseat she claps her new shoes together and says "Yay!"
My big little brother proposed to his awesome girlfriend last night and she said.............YES!
Another sister from another mister for me to love! woot woot. So excited and proud of you two. Pretty sure I cried three times before Paul actually proposed (and I wasn't even in the same state or time zone. I was watching my clock waiting for the text that said "SHE SAID YES")
Cassie Broadbent....mmm I love the sound of it. Now all I need is to convince them to move next door to us here in Hotlanta.
I was browsing the Banana sale site and stumbled upon these lovelies...
All I gotta say is "can't touch this". I may be too young for the MC Hammer era, but I got older brothers and I know exactly what MC Hammer pants are when I see em. I coveted my oldest brother's pair of 'No Fear' Mc Hammer plaid jammy pants. I think I ended up cutting them off to be shorts when they finally came down the hand-me-down line and landed in my drawer.
The customer REVIEWS on these bad boys made me shutter. Are people nuts?
"It is really a great pant making u shinning, outstanding. Even, it make my legs look longer. Also, it is easy to wear any kind of blouse and suitable for any situation. I'm glad i have one."
"I love the pants! The pants are like saruel pants, very trendy! Those can be wear in any occasions because those made with shiny fabric and have flattering design! It will make you better looking if wear with high heels! The fabric is very soft and smooth to touch! My friends kept touching the pants :) I wish I could get those in another color, too (was sold out in my size…)."
"The cuts look pretty elegant...I have yet to find a top to match with it though..."
Thats right shopper number 3, there is no top on this planet that would bring the sexy back for these pants.
I have been running around like a crazy person, so please excuse the MAJOR lack of blogging.
Life is just busy, and its all I can do to stay on top of things. I'm pretty sure this a general trend in the blogging world right now.
In light of this, I think I'm going to start a new post called "Funny of the Day". This funny thing might be something that happened to me, a movie quote, a TV episode quote, a funny thing someone said. Anything funny to just remind me to laugh.
So here is today's "Funny of the Day".
I caught Emmi putting the toes of her idle AVA (who is 4 years old), in her mouth. I said "Emmi!" she looked at me and laughed and continued to put Ava's toes in her mouth. Emmi worships Ava, she follows her around and can't get enough of her. Apparently, its gone so far as to putting Ava's toes in her mouth. Ava is very sweet with Emmi and continued to watch her movie while Emmi kept attempting to eat her. Nice.
