Emma's day began as every birthday does in our house....with a pint of ice cream of her choice. It is hers to eat whenever she wants no questions asked until it is gone! She picked chocolate chunk raspberry.
To celebrate, Emma wanted to have lunch with her friends at The American Girl store. She melted my heart after deciding that Elena should tag along as well!

And, Elena got her first AG doll as well....a Bitty Baby that she named Miranda.
This evening we had Emma's birthday dinner. Are you ready for this? Emma asked to have shrimp, sauteed mushrooms, and deviled eggs. I made coconut lime shrimp. For dessert we had homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookie ice cream cake. It was delicious!
It is going to be a big year for Emma. She will be in 5th grade. She is working hard to move up levels at the gym and to master some challenging skills. I know there will be other great things happening this year. I also know that Emma will be challenged, hurt, strengthened, loved, and full of life all year! I know that she is ready for her first double digit year!!!
We love you Emma....Happy 10th Birthday!!!!
