We started off the morning with an all-out sensory arts and crafts time, which included new paints and stickers as a present from Big Brother.
Daddy's way, for the win :)
"Hm. My hands appear to be a bit messy."
"You guys may have lost your minds, but I'm not complaining!"
After awhile, Mommy had the sense to change into one of Daddy's old grubby T-shirts and just embrace the mess! It was lovely :)
Charlie, of course, got in on the action with a Star Wars themed watercolor masterpiece.
And when the Bear got cleaned up a bit, she opened her stickers from Big Brother and carefully went about selection the perfect spot for each one of them on her fresh new picture.
A colorful, artistic triumph!
Next, we got all cleaned up and went out to find some bowling for our family. Emma truly loves it! She sets up her ball on the ramp, Big Brother lines it up for her, and she enthusiastically pushes it down the lane
She watches her ball go down to the pins ... and does a little Bear dance as the pins crash down. It's adorable!
Loves from Daddy
Loves from Big Brother ... who was focusing more on her smile than his own :)
"Ok, Mom! I think the moment has been appropriately captured! What's next?"
Off to find some frozen yogurt!
Emma doesn't eat much by mouth, but she is willing to make an exception when it's something cold and sweet. She LOVES ice cream and frozen yogurt!
And then we headed home for a long winter's nap. She was exhausted!
It was truly a wonderful day. Happy birthday to my Emma! We love her so much, and she brings us SO much joy!
