Emma's 2nd Birthday Party!

Emma had a great time at her 2nd birthday party. The theme was Little Einsteins, which is one of her favorite shows right now. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us. Emma has been enjoying all of her wonderful gifts and appreciates each one of them.

Minnie goes trick or treating

Helping mommy pack for Jacksonville

Emma helped me pack things up for Jacksonville by coloring on the packing paper and climbing in the boxes. We made it safe and sound and are almost done unpacking. Our house here has it's quirks, but it has lots of space and the more we get settled in the more we like it. The neighborhood is beautiful and will be a great place to spend the next couple of years with our girls. Thanks for all of your prayers and praise the Lord for how he has blessed our family.

Visit to the pumpkin patch October 18th

Here are some pictures of Emma Kate having a blast at the pumpkin patch. She was so excited to go pick out her "punkin". As soon as we got there, Em went right to work moving the pumpkins from one place to the next. Apparently they were not set up the way she wanted. She especially loved playing with the baby pumpkins. When she found the one she liked she gave it a kiss. What a sweet girl!

My favorite picture from our Disney trip!

Disney Trip October 17th

Larry, Emma, and I had a wonderful time at Disney this past weekend. God blessed us with amazing weather; we even had to bundle up in the evenings. Emma Kate's favorite things were: getting to see the Little Einsteins and Rocket, getting to pick out her Mickey ha-moon (which is how she says balloon), and seeing the parade and fireworks show on Saturday night. She commentated the whole fireworks show from daddy's shoulders saying things like "yeah, dad, we did it" and "look, mom, clouds at Cinderella's castle." She called the fireworks clouds no matter how many times we corrected her. It was so nice to be able to enjoy this special trip with Emma before her baby sister Lola arrives.

Downtown Disney

Saturday, we went to Downtown Disney for the afternoon. Emma had so much fun going through all of the Disney toys. I am afraid we are going to have a serious shopper on our hands. We ate lunch at the Rainforest Cafe, and Emma said "Oh no" about a thousand times. She thought somebody was going to be in big trouble for bringing all of those plants inside.

Emma's Big Girl Bed!

Friday night, we put together Emma's new toddler bed. She took right to it, and started climbing in and out. She has done very well the last two nights. The first morning, she was sitting on the floor beside the door waiting for us to come in and get her. Here are some pictures of Emma and the new big girl bed:

My Growing Girl

These pictures of Em playing in the backyard were taken last Wednesday. There were Cheerios in the back of the car; which is why she hung around long enough for some photos. Emma loves playing in the backyard, and she asks us several times a day by saying, "outside, outside, outside." A few other words she can say now are: Emma, mama, daddy, auntie, baby, pop (for popcorn), cup, and several others. She knows the names and sounds of cats, dogs, birds, and monkeys. Today, for the first time, she put both of her puzzles together without any help. Emma's favorite thing to do is still reading. Whether flipping through the pages on her own and mumbling nonsense, or having us read them to her, she loves books. One of my favorite things to do is watch Emma play with her baby doll. She pushes her in the stroller, feeds her, and kisses and hugs her all the time. It is so sweet to see how loving she is.

Emma on the Phone

I guess we are going to have to invest in unlimited talk. I wonder who will be in her Fav 5.

Emma's First Cruise

We had a great time on our cruise. Emma loved seeing the wonderful shows, and she absolutely adored Mickey Mouse. Her favorite toy for the cruise had to be the refrigerator in our room; she had the best time hiding things in it. We went on Em's first bike ride on Castaway Cay. Another fun event for Emma was the Playhouse Disney dance party. It took her a little time to warm up to the idea of it, but by the end of the party she was in the middle of the floor dancing and clapping along with the cruise staff.

December Pictures

We did not break out the camera too much this Christmas for some reason. Here are the few shots we did take on Christmas morning and a couple from throughout the month of December.
