    Birthday and Baptism

    My baby is 8. 8! I know I said that about Gretta being 6 months, but this is my baby baby. Emma is very special. She made me a mom. She completed the family we began when we got married. I never thought I'd have another baby after her. Guess I was wrong about that. Here is Emma with her birthday cake. She frosted it, and sprinkled it, and put the candles on it. Yellow cake with chocolate frosting, her favorite just like dad.
    Sean baptized Emma today. He got a little emotional, and Emma felt the spirit very strongly. She was ready to get baptized, and knows how important it is. We are very proud of her.
    Emma with her Troy and Gabriella dolls from High School Musical, her favorite movie. They sing. A LOT! But she loves them. She also got a necklace and dress for her baptism, Heely's, and a $20 gift card to Wal-Mart. She's all about the gift cards.

    Reasons we love Emma:
    10. She is very bright and fun.
    9. She has a good sense of humor.
    8. She makes friends very easily, and loves them all.
    7. She loves her sisters so much.
    6. She shares even when it's hard.
    5. We hardly ever have to ask her twice.
    4. She does the right things because she wants to.
    3. She's very responsible.
    2. She takes care of her things.
    1. She is the love of our lives because she's just the way she is. Perfect!

    I can't believe she is 8 either! Seem like just yesterday Sean was in his "moon suit', for the first time that is...

    It seems like a great day and a great memory. I'm sorry we missed it!
