Family Pics and Em's Birthday!

We went up to Jon's family cabin in Oakley over Conference weekend and took some family pictures in the beautiful fall surroundings. It was a lot of fun. Joe, Jon's dad and our photographer, was very patient with all my pose requests! Enjoy!!!

I am in love with my kids! (This picture was actually taken when we got home up MP canyon)

And I love my Hubby! We are coming up on 5 years in December :)

Emmie's BIRTHDAY! She turned 4 on October 12th. Both she and Luke love to wear these monster shirts from their friend, Noah. It fits their personalities perfectly!!

Here's my girl ready for her birthday party! Her family party was on October 11th so she had two days of celebrating.

The pinata was a big hit! pun intended.
Go B!

Emmie has so much family that love her!

"Big Luke" as Lukie calls his Uncle

Everyone spoiled Emmie with all the fun gifts. Emmie has had so much fun with her new stuff :) Thank you everyone!!

Kate made the darling birthday sign below. I love it and I'm saving it for every year!!

Getting fierce with the balloon....grrrr

Puff the Magic Dragon Cake. This was her favorite ride at Lagoon this year--and in fact, every year. She insisted this year on riding it BY HERSELF! And as usual, I made a whole event of cake making and had a lot of fun!

Charley Chew...also celebrated her bday that week. Big 5 year old!!

Emmie surprised me this year with being able to blow up a balloon by herself. That is the first big change I saw from age 3 to age 4...monumental I know.

When Emmie woke up on her birthday, her favorite meal was waiting for her...PANCAKES. Yes, they are waffles, but Emmie calls pancakes, waffles and french toast the same thing...pancakes!

CTR ring!

We love Dora around here :)

On her actual birthday, we went to McDonalds with Noah, Jenna and Curtis. What an American way to celebrate, right?!

Later that night, we had a wedding reception. Afterward we stopped by temple square and gave Em one of her birthday gifts--a model of the SL temple. Emmie has always said since her aunt "Kako" got married in this temple, that she would too.

We love you Emmie Doo! Happy Birthday :)
