3 years old!!

Well, I really can’t believe that Emeline is already 3 years old!  It has gone so fast!  It’s crazy how some days can go so slow but then the year flies past!  Emmy wanted a Care bear birthday party so that is what we did.  This year instead of having all her friends and family over at the same time I decided to do one during the day for all her friends and then have a family get together after dinner! She had a ton of fun at both but two parties equals a lot of pictures…so I hope you all enjoy!

Here’s miss Emmy the morning of her birthday.  She was kind of up with the sun that day because she was so excited!  This was taken just a few minutes before all her friends arrived!

Here is her cake!  Some of you may remember that I did a care bear cake for my sisters birthday too (at Emmy’s request).  That turned out to be great practice for this cake!  Emeline was so excited that it was all pink!  I made this one the same way as the other one only double high so it could feed more people.

As always we got a swimming pool out.  Kath got us this one at the end of last summer so Emeline was excited to try it out this year. The giraffe sprays water out his mouth too and the kids all loved that!  Thanks Kath!

Here is the whole gang!  They are staring right into the sun for this shot but they had a fun time I promise!  haha, what cuties!

Some of Emeline’s friends gave her these pretty dress ups and jewelery.   She was so excited for all her friends to be there and super surprised that they brought her presents!  She still remembers exactly who got her each thing and talks about them all the time.

One of her friends got her this great balloon too.   She had a ton of fun moving it all around the house!  I also put this picture in because I loved the outfit she chose for the day!  Ballerina pajamas with snow boots…very fancy Nancy of her 🙂

Josh and Logan (with the help of their mom of course) knew just the perfect card to send Emeline for her birthday.  It had a picture of princesses and a mirror on it…what more could a 3 year old fashionista want!  She was very excited! Thanks you guys!

Emmy’s Great grandparents also sent her some birthday cards with a little spending cash to boot!  She was so excited to take her very own money to the store and buy something “all by herself”!  How fun!  This picture makes me laugh because it looks like she is shaking it and waiting for the money to fall out.  haha

Here’s Emeline with all her loot!

Max and Kath gave her real walkie talkies!  She loves cell phones so she was so excited to get these!  They are really cute!

Here is an up close look at them!  They are pink and purple and oh so shiny! 🙂 They look just like motorola razors (which I used to have), so I’m pretty sure Emmy thinks she got her very own cell phone!  Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Baker for the really fun gift!

Alex got this shot of Emmy opening her present from Grandpa and Grandma Layman.  She saw this doll at my cousin Stacy’s house back in March and has been talking about it ever since!  It actually crawls and giggles and burps!  Super fun!  A funny thing though was that it couldn’t be shut off without taking it out of the packaging so the bag it was in kept shaking and talking every time someone moved past it!  Hilarious!

Here’s a picture of Alex taking a picture of the doll!  Plus it gives a better angle of Emmy’s face!  What a girl!

And finally, her mom and dad got Emmy her very first bike!  She is finally tall enough to rotate the pedals around so we decided it was time.  She also rides bikes at her school for physical therapy so this helps her to practice at home too!  She had a great birthday!

I just can’t believe it has already been 3 years since we were in the hospital with Emmy.  We are so glad that she is part of our family and doing so well.  She is such a happy little girl and an awesome big sister!  We love her very much!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMELINE!  (even though this post is over a month late)

Emmy’s Bday

Well, Alex thought I posted to many pictures with the last post.  But he hasn’t seen anything yet because I’ve got even more for Emmy’s birthday party!



Here are a few pictures of Emmy’s cake!  I am practicing now for when she is older and requests a bunch of crazy stuff for her birthday cake!  This time she thought it was a toy and really wanted to play with it!


Emmy’s Aunt Beth and cousins came to visit for her birthday!






Emmy opening presents




Emmy’s cousins were really excited for Emmy’s presents too!  I forgot that all of Emmy’s party guests were little boys…but they did fine at the princess party!  Logan and Travis even used Emmy’s doll house as a garage for all their hotwheels!




Here are some pictures of Emmy’s totally awesome doll house!  I arrange all the furniture and play with it at night while she is asleep!  🙂


Emmy and her friends played out in the pool too!  Unfortunately I was inside cleaning up so I don’t have pictures from outside but they are on my sister-in-laws blog.  it’s beth.bethandnathan.com…check them out!




Here is Emmy blowing out the candles to her cake…and me standing around looking pregnant!


Beth got this table for Emmy from IKEA.  Emmy really wanted mom and dad to sit in it but we told her we were too big and that she had to wait for a little kid to visit.  She was so excited for it that she set all her dolls on the floor around the table and waited by the window until her cousin Logan came to play!



She was very excited when Logan and Joshua got there and made them sit down right away!

Emmy’s Backyardigans Birthday Cake


A few months ago, Julia’s friend gave a class on cake decorating, so Julia was excited to use her newly-found skills to decorate a cake for Emmy’s birthday. The cake looks really, really good, and has a picture from Emmy’s favorite TV show, The Backyardigans. (Extra points if you can name the character). Doesn’t the cake look great? She did an excellent job. I’m sure Emmy will be very excited to eat it at her birthday party. Thanks for the help, Angela!
