Best Friends. Big Sister is thrilled and has actually played w/ her American Girl dolls and accessories more now than when she was younger. Go Big Sister – don’t grow up too fast! The day is coming that you will pack them away to wait for the day you give them to your little girl. We love you lots, Emma, be good for Jesus!!!
We finally had cake and ice cream and presents for Big Sister’s birthday on Saturday evening. Cake was very much thrown together at the last minute. I had no idea what I was going to do even when I started putting the icing on. I’d bought life savers w/ the idea of putting the candles in them, but the original idea had been w/ cupcakes. I decided a cake was easier so… this is what we ended up with.
Big Sister had left Thursday with her Grandpa and Grandma to spend a couple days in Holmes County. They got back Saturday afternoon w/ yummy doughnuts and chocolate for everyone. Emma immediately plopped her chocolate E on the cake. Cute addition if I do say so myself!
The birthday girls:) My Mom and Emma share a birthday. It’s always been special for them and they always spend at least a day together to celebrate:)
There she blows!!
And Big Sister cut the cake this year. She is growing up!
American Girl doll ‘Lanie’ from Grandma. We gave her the accessories set for Lanie and the second book about Lanie. Travis gave Mom a new meat thermometer since hers had broken at Christmas time while the guys were trying to get the meat done. I will be making her a new dress in the near (i hope) future!!
Little Sister thought she was pretty neat too;)
