Happy Birthday, Emily!

Here are a few things you may not know about Emily.
  • She is in the Horizons class at her school. She is very smart. (Before she started kindergarten she could coung backwards from 100!)
  • She is super creative. Her "projects" are always awesome.
  • She can do pull-ups!
  • Her sisters have designated her as the "peacemaker" in the family. Sometimes she wishes she didn't have to always be the peacemaker. :)
  • She loves to climb things.
  • She doesn't like nuts. Even in ice cream. (It's our tradition that the kids get to have ice cream for breakfast on their birthdays. But unfortunately both kinds of ice cream we had in our freezer today had nuts. So, Emily was easy-going and was willing to have a yummy cereal for breakfast. No tears or fussing at all!)
  • She likes being the "middle child." It makes her special.
  • Summer is her best buddy. Chloe absolutely adores her.
  • She is a kind and loyal friend. (One time some boys were teasing her friend Canyon about her name. Emily stood up to them and told them that her friend's parents were very creative and that they should be nice. Go Em!)
  • Instead of cake for her birthday she wants me to make lemon squares. I'm happy to oblige!
We love you, Emily!!!

Happy Birthday Emily. It's fun to keep up with your kids and get to know about them through your blog.
Love from one Middle child to another. I always loved being in the middle.

Happy Birthday Emily! I am sending a big hug to you for your birthday! Then when I get to see you for real, I'll give you another big hug with a kiss to go with it!

Keep being the peacemaker and keep being the wonderful young lady you are!

Jessi-
Thanks for stopping by my blog (I did a guest post on Nurture Mama today). It was so fun to have a visitor that actually left a comment! I hope you don't mind that I visited your blog also! How wonderful to be the mother of 5 girls (they are beautiful!)! I grew up in a family of 5 girls (all in a row- with two brothers on the end) and it has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. I decided that we may be kindred spirits when I saw the picture of the stack of Betsy Tacy books on your header. Do you own all of them?! I have been slowly collecting them as they come back in print or when I find them used. It was fun visiting your blog!
