Happy Birthday Emily!

Yesterday was Easter yes, but it was also my baby girls' 15th birthday!! I know we all say this, but "where has the time gone".........................
A family tradition - your choice of breakfast on the celebrate plate! The choice - Chocolate chip pancakes! That's my chocolate girl!
Saturday she had a group of friends over for a barbeque and movie! Great group of kids!
This is her opening a present that she thinks she knows what it is!
This is the look on her face when she realizes that she got what she really wanted - which she didn't think we'd ever get her. Her generous brother Nathan paid for half so we could swing it.............
AN IPOD touch!
I know Emily does not read my blog, but I just need to say, Emily Claire - you are growing up to be such a beautiful young woman inside and out! I love your independent spirit, your ability to make people feel comfortable and accepted, your musical talents, your love for animals, your spunk and your ability to think for yourself and have opinions about what's right and what's wrong. I am blessed to have you as my daughter!

PS I guess I'd better update her age on my sidebar profile!

Okay...Auntie Tanya just teared up reading this post. I still remember getting the phone call that Emily Claire had arrived. I left half cooked chicken on the stove top for my dear friend Becky to find. I was just so excited to go see this beautiful baby girl I didn't take the time to finish the chicken. Wow...time is going fast!
