Emma Turns 2!

It was this little girl's birthday yesterday so the fam gathered at Mike & Lori's for  the celebration.  Can you tell that she just awoke from a nap?

Lori plans a really beautiful party with attention to all detail.  Emma loves "Clifford the big red dog" so it was fun to get the fab four into a picture together in front of him.  It is hard to get them all to look in one direction however.
Bailey loves her Uncle Tim and makes sure to get plenty of hugs until the next visit while he's here!
Cooper & Bryden just enjoy being guys and having each other to play with...
 and gang up on Grandpa!!
More tom-foolery with Whitney and Cooper!
The birthday girl shares a quiet moment with her pretty Aunt Jamie who has a birthday tomorrow.
Emma opening gifts with help from Uncle Tim.

Bailey was practicing her photography and took this one of Aunt Joni & Uncle Tim.....
and this one of Aunt Chelsea & Whitney.

A fun moment between the two youngest members of the family.
Lori's family.....
and ours...minus Joni & Lori who had the cameras!
-the birthday girl and family.  A great day was had by all!!!

Donna, you never cease to impress me with your family closeness and celebrations. That is one thing that I'm guilty of is not putting enough emphasis on celebrations. Everything is rather low key here. I used to celebrate the kids birthday when they were young but it was mostly with their friends. So I'm really taking notice of the SPECIAL place celebrating plays in your life. You're my hero. hugs. JB

Is someone in your family a fashion designer? Your grandkids always look like they just stepped off the pages of a fashion magazine!

I confess to being like Julia, but I do have an excuse; mine are spread all over the world. Having family reasonably close-by is a blessing. Lucky you, Donna.

It's so nice that so many of your family could get together to celebrate such an important event as a two year old birthday.

I did enjoy looking at all the neat pictures. You really do have some great looking kids in your family. The grown ups are pretty good looking too!!
