Love Overflowing

A fun party

Fun, but exhausting. For me anyway. We had originally planned on having Emily’s party at the park this year but Mother Nature didn’t think it was a good idea. Of COURSE, it was nice and sunny Saturday morning. It was chilly windy though so it’s a good thing that we made the call on Friday to move the party indoors. It was fun, just a bit crowded.

I hope all of the kids and adults had a good time! I know we did. Almost everyone that Emily loved was at the party. Some family couldn’t make it but that’s understandable. She had aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and some of her favorite friends over to celebrate her big day.

It was a “Pinkalicious” themed party. Emily wanted pink cake, pink ice cream, pink jelly beans and pink lemonade! The kids read Pinkalicious, played a game and decorated pink cupcakes. What more could a little girl ask for?!

I do have to say that Emily, Stephen and I have the best friends and family in the whole world! They are always so much fun, kind and generous. We couldn’t make it through life without them. Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate Emily’s 3rd birthday! The love was definitely felt on Saturday.

Operation: Lizard

Stephen brought home Emily this cool lizard from Arizona. It’s one of those that grows when you put it into water. In 72 hours, this orange lizard went from about an inch and a half to filling up the pitcher! Emily LOVED it! Every morning she would say “Daddy!!!! Look how big our lizard is!” It was a fun little project for them.
