Emma Turns 5!!!

On the 15th, Emma turned 5 years old!  We celebrated with a birthday party at the Forever Home.  I have to tell you, this isn't the first time the candles were lit!!  As soon as they were lit the first time, I didn't even get a chance to take a picture when she blew them all out at once!  She knew exactly what to do after the candles were lit, but forgot one little detail--wait until we sing "Happy Birthday" first Emma!!  You'll have to see the video below.  That is the 2nd time we lit them and she still couldn't wait for the song to be done before blowing them out :)  She's such a cutie!!

As is traditional here, she cuts the cake as Elizabeth helps.

Elly doesn't care much for cake but sure enjoyed the ice-cream!

Holly thought they were both pretty yummy!

Sylvia, well......needn't we even ask?!  Her smile tells all, doesn't it?!

Mollie too loves chocolate cake but didn't particularly want her picture taken--she was too busy enjoying her chocolate cake to take a picture!!

Emma LOVES chocolate cake and ice-cream too!

This was one of her presents.  You know how the girls all love to dress up.  

Another favorite of Emma's is play phones!

We actually got her an electronic drum that she can play and plays music too.  She LOVED IT!!


  1. It is SO sweet to see how excited the other girls were for Emma!

    Happy birthday, girl!

  2. I love this video, can't wait to show it to my kids!
