Santa come tonight!

Can you believe it is almost Christmas? The time just flies. In a few more days the whole year will be new. Emeline is such a great little lady. She loves helping me with her little sister Ava. Ava has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia and requires a lot of extra care. Emme is my nursing assistant on most days. She knows exactly where everything is and what it is all called. That is amazing because there are a LOT od supplies!

Emeline is awaiting Sants tonight. She is very happy with all the presents she has under the tree. Our many good friends, and strangers (we call them angels) have been very generous this year and has sent the girls many presents. I don't think our tree has ever had this many gifts under it ever!

You all have a Wonderful Holiday season!

"Happy 8th Birthday Emeline!"

Yesterday Emme turned the Big 8! I do remember the short labor I had with her, from start to finish is was 5 hours. It was quick, fast and very furious! She was such a cute baby. She came out with very dark skin. We were all a little shocked. Brian's and his Mother both have an olive tint to their shin so I guess that is how she came to be so tan. She was so precious. Here is a picture of her at 2 days old. She really wasn't a heavy baby she just was solid. She almost loooked like a china doll.

We celebrated her birthday with her big sister Lexis (Lex b-day was friday.)at Gators restaurant. They had a ton of presents to open. Here is a few pictures of the party!

I still can't believe my "Cute" is growing up. Gee time goes by way too fast. It is so important to tell your children you love them and teach them how to be wonderful loving human being! You never know how life will turn out. I'm so proud of Emeline. She is such a hard worker and a very helpful little young lady!

Bad toothache!

Emeline started complaining on Saturday that her tooth hurt. This is not typical. Something really has to bother her really bad for her to even mention it to me. I called the dentist and they got her in yesterday. They took xrays and found out the tooth they had caped several months back become infected. BAD news....they were going to have to remove it. It was a baby tooth. I knew as soon as I walked up to the denist chair that the news wasn't settling good with Emme. He had already told her. He offered to get it taken care of right now. I said that was fine. I asked Emme if she was going to be okay. She nodded yes. They gave her nirtic oxide and she did well. This was actually the third time she had been given laughing gas for dental procedures. I felt so bad for her. This would be the 5th tooth they pulled out of her mouth. I always joke she has her Dad's mouth!

I let her take the rest of the day off. Her sister Lexis had come home earlier for coughing and fever. She was diagnosed later that night with pneumonia. I hope no one else gets it!

Emeline was very tired so she slept most of the afternoon. This morning she felt so much better. She always just goes with the flow of life. I couldn't ask for a better, well behaved kid.

I did have to ground her last week for leaving on her bike and not coming home for 3 hours. She goes to play and she forgets to tell me where she is going. That scares me. She does leave notes now so at least I know where she is playing.

School has started.

Emeline started back to school and she loves it. We went to the open house but got the time messed up so her teacher had already left for the night, so I didn't get to meet her. Emeline heard through other students that her teacher was mean. She was very afraid. I told her not to worry it would be okay. The first day she was beeming at how much fun she had. Her first words were, "Mom she was super nice and I like her a lot."

We've been walking her to school in the mornings. Ava loves to ride and the girls enjoy walking.

Emeline enjoys third grade. She likes to do reading, math, english, language arts, spelling, science and social studies. She expecially loves recess and spending time with her friends!

"Smile Pretty!"

Emeline is a natural when it comes to taking pictures. I can't ever remember her ever taking a bad picture. She is such a pretty girl. Her skin tans very well despite the fact of me constantly putting sunscreen on her. Oh well some are just meant to be gorgeous.

Now do you see how she got her nickname "Cute"?

How much fun can one girl stand?

Me and my baby sister Ava are getting ready to enjoy Adventureland.

Water + slides + sun = FUN!

This was such a fun ride. The guy made us say "Ribbit" the whole ride.

Can you do this?

Here I am touching a starfish. Me scared NO.

My Mom dared me to stand this close. My Dad told me it would peck me. It didn't!

The fish were going crazy over the food I was throwing! A few times a fish would get stuck on top of the pile. That was funny!

This slide was so much fun!

I am enjoying a cool drink of water.

Pizza anyone?

We made pizza today for lunch. The girls did it all!

The sauce is added to the dough with much love!

Pizza gets a thumbs up from Emeline.

I'll have to admit it was delicious. I just have to remember that making is half the fun. It was nice to let them get their hands dirty.

Emeline Rose

It is so hard for me to believe that Miss Emeline is going to be 8 years old in less than two months. Emeline is my thinker. She is very good at keeping everything straight for me. I can always count on Emme to remind me when things need to be done, or what time we need to be there. I love her tender spirit. She is always concerned about the well being of others. I remember in kindergarten her teacher called me one day and told me how Emeline gave this little boy that lost his crayons her whole box. When she asked her why she did that Emeline replied, "He was so sad." She never wants to see anyone cry or be unhappy. My Emme is constantly a step of ahead of everyone else. There is not a second in the day that she is not pondering something. I love that about her.

Emeline is very small but she don't let that stop her ever. She loves the water. The place you will find her in the summer is in our pool. Her and Lexis come up with the neatest shows. They surprise me with what they come up with. This happens all with music going. I will have to video it and add it on here.

One more thing about "Cute", that's her nickname. She is very social. She loves life and she loves her friends. She definately takes after me.

I just cut her hair last night and it is adorable. Since she has been three I have tried to keep her hair short. This summer it became long and we decided once again to take it off. It just lays so perfect when it's cut. She is my cutie-cute pants!


~Pretty Cute~

Here is Emeline's video I made a few months ago. As you will see she grows right before your eyes! She is my "Cute!"
