not quite wordless wednesday...

We have the best friends!!!!

Due to the loss of Steve's job we had to cancel Emma's birthday party...

We just had a small family one!

But our friend Vanessa wanted to give Emma a bigger party.....

So she and Gena gathered some friends together after church services on Sunday....

and they surprised Emma with a party!!!!!
There was a FANTASTIC Candyland cake~~~made by Mrs. Vanessa... There was a VERY happy little girl....There were sparkler candles~~that took ALOT to blow out...
And there was the best gift ever~~~the PINK LEAPSTER!!!
and Leapster games, a purse filled with LOTS of goodies, and an aquarium!!!!

We are truly blessed with great friends!!!!

  28. MAGAZINE HELP!

    Hi,
    I'm Rebecca and I'm currently completing my masters in Magazine Journalism at the University of Sheffield.

    For my final dissertation, I am creating a parenting magazine for mothers with daughters aged 2 to 10.

    I came across your blog and was wondering if you would be willing to help me by sharing with me a funny/embarrassing/touching moment you had with your daughter(s) in just 50-100words.

    It will only be used for academic purposes and not for publication.

    I can be reached at rebecca.yapmy@yahoo.com.sg

    I look forward to your reply.

    Many thanks,
    Rebecca
