Emmy Turns 3!!!

{Happy Birthday, Emmy!!!}

Our lives were changed forever three years ago when we welcomed this beautiful, spunky, entertaining girl into our lives . . .

Emmy's birthday started out w/ Jake and I going into her room with some balloons and singing Happy Birthday to her.  The balloon we got her is a HUGE princess castle balloon.  She had seen it at Walmart last week and shown it to me.  So I had to go back and get it for her!
We let her open one present when she woke up.  We got her Snow White and this was her reaction when she opened it:

She watched her movie and was immediately singing like Snow White.  Today at church, while they were passing the Sacrament, Emmy started singing, "aaah ha ha!  aaaah ha ha!" like Snow White.  It was hilarious.  We never know what song will come out of her mouth during church.  Sometimes its Phantom, sometimes it's the ABC's, today it was Snow White :)  She is our little singer!

We just had a family party this year.  My friend, Jessica, made this adorable cake for Emmy.  Thanks, Jess!  Emmy loved it!

If you've read my blog for a while, you know that Emmy loves The Phantom.  She has a slip-dress that she calls her "Christine dress".  I decided to get her a better "Christine dress" for her birthday.  She loved it!  She had to put it on as soon as she opened it.  Today, she told me she wanted to put on her "Big Christine dress" as opposed to her little slip.

Emmy got this princess castle tent for her bday, too.
She shared her new dress and let Ella wear it :)  

Emmy loves playing Doctor with random objects.  It was finally time to get her a Doctor's kit.  It was a big hit!  She and Ella started playing Doctor on each other and on Kate.

Emmy kept saying she was "Dr. Darlene" - she's the Nurse Practitioner that works at the Pediatrition's office that Jake works at.  Notice the frosting on her face?

We ended the day at Grammy and Papa's house sipping hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows.  What a fun day!

Hot chocolate w/ a straw -why not?

Emmy has filled our lives with so many challenges, but so much joy!  She found a place in our hearts and we will never be the same.
Happy birthday, sweet girl!  We love you!

And I had to add this last pic because I got a new 'do!  I was really sick of my hair and so my sister cut bangs for me!  I really like it and got a lot of compliments at church today - that always reassures me when I do something drastic :)

Haha! "Dr. Darlene!" Emmy is such a spunky little girl. She looks just like Kate in that first baby picture. I want to hear her Snow White impression.
