Emma's Day

Today is my baby girl's 7th birthday. She started her celebration early this morning. Apparently, she got up at 2:30 and asked Chloe if she could sleep with her.

When I walked out of our bedroom this morning at 6:30 to start breakfast, the loft t.v. was on. They got up at 5:30. Needless to say, my special breakfast surprise was ruined. Oh well....


Emma put on the Birthday Crown and we all climbed on my bed to open her birthday gift.



She was given movie tickets for the "girls" to go see Horton Hears a Hoo. (daddy bought them yesterday for us to go see this afternoon after school) She also found her very own copy of Charlotte's Web. She was very excited.

Hanging out waiting for the movie to start.....still wearing the crown.



Mom and the birthday girl and big sis sneaking into the picture...


Dad and Emma...notice she still has on the crown.



We had dinner at our favorite Asian restaurant...they have a Tiki Hut in the restaurant and we were able to sit in there tonight. The two owners were both in the restaurant tonight and one happens to be the chef. Both of them make you feel like part of their family. They brought Emma this HUGE dessert and once again, she and Chloe devoured it.

The chef brought this out to Emma. You can't see it in this picture, but this dessert came with a flaming saucer of Saki. Emma looked like she was just about to dip some cake in there when Chad moved it off the plate...Then he gave me a look as if to say, do you want to try this? No. I did not partake. I am Baptist......



A warm(er) spring evening in this family includes some bike riding. So that is what we came home to do.

I'm off to make a grocery list and plan for her family party on Saturday. We have all 6 grandparents coming in, so I've got some work to do! And I just may be drinking Saki before it's all over!!! JUST KIDDING....

Thank you so much for your comment! We're actually looking in Gwinnett county. My husband is going to be working in Duluth and we are interested in the Sugar Hill/Buford area, but open to anything around the area that's nice for families and has a decent commute. Is there anything you could tell me about that area? We'll have to check out your church when we get there too! We're moving at the end of July.

By the way, your girls are adorable!
