Emma's 4th Birthday

Our little Emma turned 4 in March! Can you believe this little girl is in preschool? She is growing up to be such a little character. She is all girl! She loves everything pink, sparkly, and frilly. She loves sweets and could eat anything bread all day long! She loves preschool and is always on the lookout to make a new friend any chance she gets.
This year for her birthday she requested a "Disney's Frozen" cake. But to be a little different from the princess Anna and Elsa we went with the little snowman from the movie instead. Here's her  Olaf cake:
this cake was a lot of fun. The outside is made with KitKat bars that I scored with a fork to make them look like wood. I just love Olaf's little melting friend too.
For Emma's birthday we had a little get together with the neighbor kids, Grandma and Grandpa Glenn, and "Uncle" Ben and "Aunt Kara. The cousins couldn't come since they were sick. But we still had fun.

We'd better watch out! If she gets this excited about shoes now what's going to happen when she's a teenager?!

I made her an Olaf hooded towel and she loved it! I can see this thing being used for much more than bath time.

Emma plays with these magnetic dolls EVERY time we drop her off at preschool. She was so excited to get her very own set. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Glenn!


And look who else came for a visit! This is my adorable niece Alexis. I loved having her and her mommy come stay for awhile! I really hope one day we can live close.

For Emma's birthday we went to a hockey game for the Silvertips. She still talks about it. I don't think she had a clue what was really going on during the game but that didn't matter. She thought it was the coolest thing to be in a private suite (hosted by Dan's work) where she could wander and eat as many chips, popcorn and goodies as she wished. 

She looks happy now but this girl wasn't much of a fan of the game. Whenever we scored a point the sirens and cheering were very worrisome for her. Luckily Dan's co-workers who shared the suite with us brought some of their kids' soundproof earmuffs.
much better. "Huh, what did you say mom? I can't hear you"

The cake didn't get eaten as much as I had hoped. So to prevent us from taking the rest home I invited all the teenage boys in the suite next to us to come and eat cake too. It disappeared in a hurry after that.

Happy Birthday Emma. You are such a sweet little girl and a cherished member of our family. We love you!
