Finally posted

Well, we;re back home and I have uploaded Emma's birthday pictures. I am going to try to make a slide show....we'll see. The party went well, but Emma was only mildly interested in her cake. Needless to say, we don't have any great gooey-faced pictures. They're cute anyway!

Emma woke up from her nap, so I'll add more later :-)

On the road again...

We are still traveling. Now we're in TN. The funeral for my aunt was on Monday in MO. Thank you for all of your prayers and kind words during this time. It was really sad for us to lose her, but we know she is in a much better place. Jody and I figured out we have hit 7 states this week!! After visiting friends in Columbia, MO, we headed to Nashville to visit with Jody's cousin before my family reunion (also in TN). Needless to say, I haven't been able to upload any pics from Emma's party yet.

Thanks to all who gave advice on the party. The party went well. We all had a great time. Emma ate only a little of her cupcake and even less ice cream. But, she definitely enjoyed herself. She LOVED being the center of attention (and looked really cute, too)!! We had about 30 people at the house. Jody enjoyed showing off all our (mostly his) hard work and grilling out. The kids had fun playing the "hot potato/gift" game and hitting the pinata. And of course, eating!!

New things from Emma...when asked what a dog says, Emma says "woof woof" she can also tell what a cow says (although intermittently). When opening her birthday presents, she said "oooh" if it was clothes - she's her mother's daughter!
