On a side note...in Sunday School Sunday they stamped their fingers and named their friends on her paper they wrote "Seffy" since that is what she calls him. :) I thought it was cute!
Lovin' each other.

Sweet Emma -
We celebrated your birthday a month early. In lieu of gifts we asked everyone to bring a filled shoebox or items to fill a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. Some even brought you gifts as well. :) We collected 10 shoeboxes to send to Samaritans Purse to be delivered around the world to other children in need. I hope that as you grow you will want to continue to do this to see that it is so much better to give than to receive.
We are so proud of you sweet girl. You are SO outgoing and don't meet a stranger...just like your "great" Papa. I often say that you two would have made great WalMart greeters. I am sure that he is smiling down on you. :) I have more to write on your actual "birth"day so I need to stop now. I love you so much and am so glad God gave us YOU!!!
Every late night, every cupcake, every sore finger (from cutting and gluing), ever penny spent, every minute labored was worth this day and the "magic" in your eyes. I hope your birthday celebration was great for you. After the party you exclaimed "I got to jump with all my friends!" I'm so happy you had fun, sweet girl.
I love you!!!
