This past Thursday was Emma-Lyn's sixth birthday. She was so excited!! She has been counting down since the beginning of January! In the morning, we decorated the kitchen and baked her birthday cake. We had Grammie Peric and Auntie Linda as well as Anna and Honey join us for supper. Emma-Lyn wanted to make mini pizzas and everyone enjoyed their own creations.
Emma-Lyn had hoped that her friends Abby, Hannah and Sarah could come for her birthday, but I had to tell her that they were just too busy and couldn't come. What I didn't tell her was that we had already arranged for their family to come over on Saturday to surprise her. She was so thrilled that afternoon when their van pulled up and the girls came tumbling into the house. Oh the squeals of laughter and delight that ensued! All the children had a blast... Except for Levi, who slept through most of it. And while the children had fun bouncing off the walls, the parents also got a chance to sit down and play a game--that is after we got out a movie for the kiddos to watch. Then on Sunday Auntie Linda picked up Emma-Lyn and took her to see Frozen. I think this was Emma-Lyn's second time at the theatre so she was enthralled with the whole experience. And to top it all off she got to spend the night at Auntie Linda's.
