New Favorites... for Grammie :)

Hi mom, I know you'll be checking this tonight, here's some new pics of Emery. Thought you might like them.... I love this one because of the little look on her face and the simplicity of it.
And I love this one because of her little stink pot face she's making... that's Em!
And I couldn't resist this one, she's got her typical "owl look" accompanied by her owl noises... but I think it's also a combination of the bow (woo hoo! I finally put one in her hair!) the ruffly skirt, and the agile tights that just make it a complete package! We miss you guys!

Crazy Fun Up North...

So, January is birthday month for my side of the family- my mom, sister, brother-in-law, and favoritiest nephew are all January babies! So we have a lot of celebrating to do!! We kicked off the trip with a surprise visit at 10pm to my sister's house the night before her birthday. We tied some balloons to Emery and rang the doorbell! "Surprise Aunite Danika, here I am!"
Here's my little stink-pot, not cooperating while I put her pants on... did you notice both of her legs are in one side of her pants... how come my legs don't do that? :)
The day wouldn't be complete without an "apple & cheerio" picnic in the dining room would it? These two twirps warm my heart, thanks Lord for them both!
Don't ever get big Em, never ever.
And before you know it, it was Owen's turn to turn 4! He had a "Handy Manny" birhtday theme (Handy Manny is a fix it man, if you weren't familiar with the likes of him... he has a lot of tools, the latest being "Flilcker the Flashlight" featured here with this birthday cake my sister, her friend, and myself made. ) Turned out cute huh?
And, Owen's very own "Pin the tool in the tool box" party game... my sister's one creative gal huh?
Some party attenders, my "little brother" Scott and my fabulous mom, we call her Debs.
A quick pic of the girls, me, my sister Danika, and my sister-in-law Lisa.
The birthday boy and his mom!
Sneaking some yummy blue frosting from what's left of Flicker... no one's watching but Grammie, but she doesn't really count does she?Bubba and Em hanging out during present time!
Bubba, Lisa, and little Em getting some rays... sure was beautiful weather for January!
Love this age, doesn't get any better....

More smiles at the park with cousin Owen swinging right by her side!
Sweet Auntie Lisa gave these two a fabulous ride in this stellar Radio Flyer wagon :)

Goof balls. That's all there is to it. All you need is mom's scarf and your imagination!

What's new around here...

Why are little feet so cute? You never think they can get any cuter, and then you find a pair of shoes that just make you shake your head in amazement--- "They just got cuter!" Thank you cousin Owen for passing down the red converse goodness :) So here's something new, Emery has been making this face a lot lately- crinkling up her nose like a big sass... who knows where she picked that up!
And, this is new in our neck of the woods, Emery has been standing up and pulling herself up on things, but to be honest, she's still perfectly content to sit in the middle of the floor and watch everything else going on! Late bloomer I guess!And one last new tradition that has begun, Bubba & Emery and Buddy & Griffin (Bubba's brother & his son) have started to go out to breakfast on Saturday mornings... a daddy and kiddy adventure while the mommy's get a morning to themselves! Cool huh!? (we'll see how long it lasts!)
