Emily is 5!

Our girl turned 5 years old today. The celebration started Friday with parties in each of her preschool classes. Mommy and Daddy went took cupcakes to her morning class and helped her celebrate. She got a crown from one of her teachers and you'll see it in several of these photos. She wore it most of the day on Saturday and even had it on at church Sunday!

Saturday morning her Aunt BB and cousins Haileigh and Eric came to help celebrate. Em had told me she didn't want any friends, just family, at her birthday party so that's what she had. It was small and quiet and guess what? She told me several times that this was the best birthday ever! It doesn't take tons of presents and a huge party to make this girl happy.

Saturday after a lunch of tacos (her choice) and cake (I made it myself), me, Emily and our three out of town guests went to the mall and looked around. Emily had some birthday money she was dying to spend at the "pink store" (aka Claire's) so after 15 minutes she finally settled on some Disney Princess press on nails. :-) After such a big day we had a quiet evening at home and all had an early night.

Sunday morning we all got up and went to church, then we had to say goodbye to BB, Haileigh and Eric :-(. After an afternoon rest, we went to the park to play (did I mention the weather was beautiful ALL weekend) and stopped for an ice cream on the way home.

The big purchase for her birthday was a new big girl bed. She was still in a toddler bed and was beginning to outgrow it so she now has a beautiful new twin bed all to her own, complete with Disney Princess bedding! It was a wonderful weekend and I'm so glad she enjoyed it!
