Last week

Last week was a little crazy, Emma was sick but is getting better. Those nasty colds are really making their rounds. It always breaks my heart when she's not feeling well. Here's a photo of her on her tricycle and a couple of her with the boys from this weekend.

Emma on the carousel

We had a good afternoon today with Grandma and Grandpa Briggs. We went to the mall in Springfield and Emma went on her first carousel ride. She was so excited about it. When we were buying the ticket she had pretty much wormed her way out of the stroller before I could unbuckle her. She just couldn't wait to ride on it. She was all smiles the whole time. She thought it was so fun, in fact she wanted to ride it a second time. As we walked away she was yelling horsey, horsey!

Bubbles & Hercules

Here's a photo of Bubbles & Hercules... two of our pets.

This is Bubbles one of Emma's "she-shes" aka fishies.
Grandma Cook got the fish for her before they left for Arizona.

This is one of our Great Danes, Hercules, we usually call him Herc-e. We finally got Emma to start saying his name. She has been calling both of them Harley.

I'll try to post some photos of Nemo & Harley soon... stay tuned.

Daddy's Little Helper

Here's Emma helping Daddy touch up some paint on the living room wall. What a good little helper!

Emma's Party

We had a Mickey Mouse party for Emma's Birthday. Here's a few photos from the party. As you can see, she wasn't so happy when we all started singing Happy Birthday.

Here's a photo of her in her pedal car from Grandma & Grandpa Briggs. She loves the bell.
This is Emma and her friend Amie... so cute!

Opening gifts...

Here she is on the tricycle that we got her.
The girl made out with some loot! It's like a toy bomb went off at the house...still trying to find just the right spot for everything. I think one of her favorite gifts was her "lip" (that's what she calls chap stick) that she got from Amie, she couldn't put it down after she got it.

Emma's 2nd Birthday

Can you believe it? Emma's TWO! On Emma's Birthday we celebrated by going to the Children's Discovery Museum. She had a great time exploring the different exhibits. After the Museum we went and had lunch with Grandma at work and then did a little shopping. When we had cake later that night, she kept blowing out the candle before we could finish singing Happy Birthday.
