I can't believe that my little Emma turns three in one week! She has grown so much this year and truly is just a joy to be around. I'm sure everyone feels this way about their own children, but I don't know any other little girl who is as special and well rounded and as delightful as Emma is. I can't wait to share this experience of having a baby with her and I know she will be such a help to me this year in my life and all the years to come.
I just wanted to post my favorite pictures of her from her last birthday to this one. These tu-tu pictures were for her 2nd birthday and the last picture is one I took for her 3rd birthday.

Another day we had Carrie and Addi over for a pink lunch and then we decorated some fancy Valentine's to give to each of their dads. The girls play so well together and it's so fun to have them entertain each other while we can work on projects of our own.

Saturday we spent the day with Kylee and Brody again. The boys watched another movie and Kylee and I went walking with my aunt Lee. It was sooo nice outside (40 degrees) and we really enjoyed getting some actual sunlight on our faces. We hung out there all day just playing games and visiting and it was a great break for the usually boring winter weekends.
Later that night we went to my Aunt Carol's house for games there with two of my sisters and their husbands. We played some serious cards and enjoyed the yummiest home made salsa and caramel popcorn. Ryan and I were the last ones to leave, as usual, and just really enjoyed our weekend with family.
Sunday we slept in and took our time getting ready for our 1:00 church. We sat on the second row which was a first for both of us to be so close to the front. Emma loves nursery and it's so nice to enjoy the church hours and not be stuck out in the hall.
After church we had dinner at 4:00 and then just lazed around the rest of the night. We played a little hide and seek but mostly just vegged on the couch.
Although this week wasn't interesting, it was very typical. I am so thankful to be a stay at home mom and to have such a supportive husband who is also my best friend. Our lives are very simple, but we couldn't be happier.

Also something typical that we do is rent a movie or go see a movie for Family Night. Our local Ogden theater just reopened and turned into a dollar movie and we're so excited. We went and saw Madagascar 2 and loved it. I'm going to miss this time with just the three of us, but we're all so excited for Lydia to come that I don't think it will be too hard to give it up.
