Happy Birthday Emily


Today my baby turns 15! Nothing magical about 15 other than making me feel REALLY OLD! But she is totally excited.


Emily is my active sportsy type girl. She also can ride a unicycle and juggle. She also LOVES to make balloon "things". I am hoping she doesn't decide to join the circus! Her dream is to move to Alaska and raise sled dogs. (She made the penquin and Bart this weekend).




She wanted a 3 layer funfetti cake for her bday tonight, so I got it all made yesterday, and her choice for dinner is going out for Olive Garden! Woo hoo on that one - I don't have to cook or do dishes!
I went to the movies with my friend yesterday afternoon (right after Emily figured out Bart) and look who I ran into!


Happy Birthday Emily! Even though you won't want to admit it - you'll always be my little princess!

All little girls are their mothers' princesses! Happy B-day Emily and happy being a mother day to you too Dawn. She's beautiful. Oh -- and joining the circus isn't so bad -- I have an uncle who was a clown with Barnum and Bailey's for several years in his 20's. He still talks fondly of it!

And congratulations on raising such a fine young woman. Bet she just loves that last photo!

What an absolute doll she is! And I, too, want to move to Alaska and work with the sled dogs. After seeing them when we were there a couple of years ago, I wanted to buy one so-o-o bad. Husband is such a party pooper--he thinks they cost too much!!! But they are precious.

Great photos ! They grow up TOO fast !! One minute you're pureeing the food - the next minute they're rolling their eyes at you and calling you sad - or maybe thats just my kids !!
