My darling Emma turned six. Other than her first birthday this one has made me the most sad inside. It's official now, she's grown up. From this age on, the milestones will be far between. From birth to age 5 the milestones are frequent and give reason for much celebration. Now that she can read and is in school, I feel like the next milestone is driving and dating. I hope I'm wrong. I love watching her discover her abilities and strengths and develop new characteristics. I am so thankful for the light Emma brings to my life and for the very dear friend she is of mine. I am truly blessed to have her.
Here's Emma proposing a toast to all of her friends, I believe it was "Friends Forever!!!"
Pin the leg on the octopus
Pass the fish- with sharkies as a prize
Each girl took home her own fish. They were SOOOOO excited.
We went to Texas Roadhouse for Emma's favorite meal, steak and broccoli.
When we got home we gave her a brand new bike that is more her size. It's called Sea Star and this was money well spent. Emma was one delighted little birthday girl.
I LOVE how appreciative and enthusiastic Emma was about this whole day. It was a lot of work, but she noticed every detail and was over the moon about her birthday party. I want to give a special thanks to those who made a great effort to attend her party, call her, and give her a gift, you know who you are, and so does she, thank you so much from both of us!!!
