Emily's 8th Birthday

Emily was so excited to celebrate with her friend, Regan. We all went to Pump it Up and then to Stevi B's for dinner.

I made a chocolate chip cookie cake, per Emily's request. Jonathan enjoyed snacking on some chocolate chips while the kids helped me make the dough.

She is growing up so fast!

She wanted a pink Wii remote sooo badly. Thanks Papa and Nana! I don't think the boys will want to use this one, which was her plan all along, I'm sure.

Emily will be baptized this Saturday!

Sleepy McSleeperson

Jonathan is my sleepiest baby. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, but he still takes two naps a day and sleeps well at night. There are few things as sweet as the sight of a sleeping baby. Here he is in the car on a particularly crazy afternoon of taking kids to all of their activities:

Daniel needs a nap during the day, but he refuses to take one--at home, anyway. If he knows we are doing a lot of running around in the afternoon, he will insist on taking his pillow with him in the car because he intends to take a nap. It's pretty cute. This is a picture I took one evening after I laid him on the couch because he had fallen asleep in the car. I love those rosy cheeks!

Daddy-Daughter Date Night

Every February for the last three years, Michael has taken Emily to the Daddy-Daughter Dance at the YMCA. This year, however, Emily decided that she wanted to go to dinner and a movie with her Daddy. Michael was happy to oblige! They went to see Yogi Bear in 3D and then to a buffet for dinner. Emily calls it "the best night of the year!"
