Birthday Week Part 1

birthday Emma

Can you believe it Emma is 3 years old! Where has time gone! It is crazy to look and back and see how much she has changed just in this past year. She is the sweetest, loving little girl I know... who also loves to go "Rrrroar" at you. She makes me laugh everyday and says the sweetest things to me. (The other day she gave me a big hug and told me she missed me, even though I was only away from her for a minute.)

To Celebrate our sweet Emma Jane's birthday we decided to keep it simple and fun... so we had a week long celebration hahaha!

We have been wanting to go check out Fairytale Town in our area for some time. So we figured why not for her birthday. We invited Emma's friend Jack and his family along for the fun. Jack (a.k.a Marci) was the best and got Emma some sunglasses her her birthday. She was obsessed! Haha it pretty much made her week.

Fairytale town was so much fun! It is pretty much like a glorified park. Each fairytale had a slide or animals, or play structure for the children. There was the crocked trail that went up and done and curved around. I think we followed the path at least 5 times. They even had the White Rabbits hole. The kiddos would race to slide down the hole then run back up to do it again. Jack little brother Phillip would often get trapped in the whole when all three of them would try to come down at the same time haha!

They even had a garden that the kids could go to and water the garden. Those poor plants! I have a feeling that Emma may have tried to drown them. She was just having to much fun using the watering can.

As we were leaving Fairytale Town, Emma came up to me and said "Mommy can I hold Jacks hand Please?" I then told her she had to ask Jack. So she promptly went over and said "Jack, hold your hand, Please?" Hahaha so we walked the rest of the way to the car with these two little friends holding hands the entire way. They crack me up so much. I just love how good of friends they are.

For lunch we asked Emma what she wanted to do. She surprised us all when she declared she wanted to go to Costco and have Samples. Not a Hot Dog, but Samples. LOL! I love how the simplest things make her happy. So of course we had to go to Costco and fulfill her wishes. That evening we had Pink pancakes for dinner. With Sprinkles! Best dinner ever hahaha! Emma was so excited. It is the only thing she has been asking for for her birthday. Then we packed up our bags and headed to Grama and Grampa's. When we got there they surprised us with a huge, yummy cake for Emma and Jake. (Jake's birthday is three days after Emma's) It was the perfect ending to the perfect birthday day!

This past summer we were able to go and visit my family in Idaho. While we were there Jake took family pictures for my sister Sarah. To say that she was a little obsessed with her pants is a understatement. Haha She was walking around saying RED PANTS!!!DSC_0584   And I have to admit, her "RED PANTS!!!" were pretty awesome. DSC_0460 So when I was digging through Emma's closet today I was super excited to find a pair of red pants. Even better news, they fit! Now Emma can walk around saying RED PANTS!!! Best day ever!

Jamba Juice

Emma Family

We took Emma to try something new... it was of course Jamba Juice. A couple of weeks ago we were visiting Ben, Lonie and their family. While there they came up with the idea to go and get a smoothie. Emma's cousins where of course pretty excited and Emma was too as soon as she tried some of the goodness. It made Miss Emma a believer in Jamba Juice. Silly me thought that I could share my drink with this munchkin. Hahaha that was a funny idea. My little Girl drank up the juice so fast! Luckily for me she allowed me to sneak a few sips.

She is such a silly little Duck. We had such a blast visiting Jake's Brother and his family. It was so cute watching Emma play with her two little cousins. One of the nights that we were there they took us to go and see a concert of a violinist and pianist. The best part was that is was outside. The weather was perfect for cuddling under a blanket as we watched the performance. Emma was so enthralled with the music that she didn't move a muscle except to clap and dance a little. My sister-in-law even made us all popcorn and treats to eat while there. She is simply the best! It was the perfect evening to spend with our family.

I can't wait to get together with our family again and have more fun. What do you like to do with your family?

Emma’s Birthday

birthday Emma

Its long overdue, but I am finally getting around to writing about Miss Emma's birthday. It was a day full of family, food, laughter, and of course cake. I have to admit I couldn't wait to see Emma eat her cake and get frosting everywhere. It was the craziest, busiest, but best birthday that we could ask for. So many family members came out to celebrate Emma's big day. We started the day off by exploring the Farmers Market and getting the last few items needed for the party. We then came home and got the food out and everything ready to go. DSC_0097 DSC_0096 Then it was the dreaded waiting game. I hate waiting. So what to do while waiting. Why crochet, be silly, and in Emma's case give you the puppy dog eyes. Seriously how do you say No to that little face. DSC_0093 DSC_0100 But soon enough family started showing up, and kept showing up until our home was completely packed with people. If I counted right there was about 17 people in our tiny living room. Its a good thing we all love each other. Its not very often that both sides of our family has a chance to meet together. It was perfect having so many people who love Emma there with us. DSC_0107DSC_0131 DSC_0108 The rest of the party was full of eating, opening presents, laughing, and of course eating cake. It was so fun watching Emma with her other cousins. DSC_0162DSC_0106 DSC_0113  DSC_0147DSC_0164 DSC_0169  DSC_0171 I love that messy face. I think the cake was a success! And can I say that I am super proud of that cake. First time making a fondant cake whoo hoo. The whole party was super fun. After the party broke up, we ended the day by going to the park with my parents and grandparents. DSC_0237 DSC_0194 DSC_0201 It was the perfect celebration for the cutest little girl. I am so glad that so many family members traveled so far to celebrate with us. Now to start planning her next birthday... (just kidding ;) )

birthday Emma

I can't believe it! Emma is turning ONE. It must be a trick. It couldn't have been almost a year ago that I had her. Time is just going by to fast. But, I have to admit that I am so excited for her birthday party. Thanks to Pinterest I am full of way to many ideas that I want to do for it. Its going to be great. I was going to wait until her birthday to do the grand reveal of her party, but then I thought why not bring you along on my adventure! So as I create and plan, I'll keep you in the loop. And if this makes you want to throw a party for a one year old,.... well its not my fault. I blame Pinterest ;) First up.. the Theme Okay so there are a million of ways that I could have gone with Emma's first birthday a3e0fc620bb8c7967d123c90a72763f4  4a09e16d82dd898f7efcf7495ca0b197 368cd918f40f1d6d3c6c5883a856dfe0 Tea Party                       Little Ballerina                                   Pinwheels How cute Emma would have been in a little tutu. Or it would have been so special to use her tea set that her Grandma gave her at my baby shower. And those Pinwheel are just too cute. I love the colors that they used! There were tons of other ideas that I came across beside these three. But what I loved most of all were all the Hot Air balloon ideas Here is what originally inspired me. 80060435f61971b4bd532a9b3312dde4 5122fce86998049784e69a9f19a8b2bb Source                                                 Source Are not those the cutest ideas ever! I am so in love with the little cake pops and the hot air balloon center piece. I love any excuse to pretend that I am going on a hot air balloon (its a dream of mine ...and I am sure Emma's) Ever since I saw these two pictures, I have been bursting with ideas. I am not sure two weeks is going to be enough time to make everything lol! Jake is getting excited about all my plans... I think that it is because I am doing a practice cake this weekend. Then again, I'm excited for the practice cake. It's going to be delicious. Between now and the Cake the goal is to finish all of Emma's hot air balloon birthday cards. They are turning out so cute. I can't wait to show them off. But that will have to wait until tomorrow. What would you do for a little girls first birthday?
