Little Miss Emma turns 6

We celebrated Emma's happy birthday on Friday, October 1. She is such a joy to have in our family. She is always so obedient and because of that, she and I got to have a special date last week to go see "Ramona and Beezus", which she loved! She seems like she is so much older than 6 and is so mature and knows exactly what she wants. She is a great help with whatever we ask her to do and is a wonderful older sister to Kate. She loves to play the piano and is doing amazing! (I don't think I could play as well as her at age 6!) We love her so much and are so happy that she could have such a special day!

Modeling her new outfit and her Littlest Pet Shop house- she could play with them for hours. Fortunately, so can Daniel, and they play LPS so great together!
Part of Emma's party was spent painting faces and nails. Here are Hailey, Hallie, Sydney (she's 10- not freakishly tall!) and Madeline.

Emma was so happy that her cousins who live far away were able to come- thanks, Emily for driving the girls down! Emma and cousin Gracie.
The girls decorating cupcakes. The weather was so nice and it was so great to have the party outside!
She was okay with a cupcake to blow out instead of an actual cake. (Truthfully, I forgot about a cake!)
She loved dinner at Chili's and felt extra special when she got this free frosty chocolate shake and got sung to. She MADE me tell the waitress it was her birthday!
And, of course, Grandpa Kevin! He came for the last part of her party to "participate", which Emma loved! Then he joined us for dinner and took Emma birthday shopping after. She had a great time with him, and her birthday wouldn't have been complete without him! Thanks Dad!

She DOES seem a lot older than six! What a cutie. I want to hear her play the piano sometime. :-)

Yay!! Happy Birthday Emma! I'm glad that she had such a fun day and that her party was a success. She is looking so much older and she is really thining out!! Oh, and for the record i'm sure that you played that well when you were 6, where else do you think she gets it from! Can't wait to see you soon.

What a great party! Maybe she and Cam can cause a piano ruckus like we used to one day.

P.S. Check my blog - I responded to your comment. You're great!

What a great party! She does have a certain maturity about her but as a look at the pictures she also has a special LIGHT in her eyes, she is quite the special girl---you are so lucky!
