Happy Birthday to my Baby

Emma turns 5 today! I can't believe how quickly she is growing up. Emma is the greatest joy of our lives. She loves to sing and laugh and dance, and she loves to make others laugh. Her smile is contagious, her sense of humor is hilarious, her heart is tender.

Emma is such a Daddy's girl. She loves to play in the garage with him, go biking with him, do yardwork and watch hunting shows. And yet she is such a Mommy's girl. She loves to dress up pretty, help cook dinner, go shopping and make cards. She's our "pirate princess". (I borrowed that phrase from somewhere....)

We are so grateful God blessed us with Emma Michelle. Happy Birthday baby! (She said I can still call her "baby" even though she is growing up.)

I will post some pictures from Emma's special breakfast, cowgirl birthday party and other birthday moments later on. Until then, here are some pictures of Emma in Texas and her new birthday bike.

Happy Birthday to Emma! I saw her Sunday morning on the way to take Maren to nursery. She looked so cute:)
I'm glad you are doing okay! You are in my prayers often:) When you're feeling up to it, we should get together.
