Emma's Kindergarten Class

This is Emma's Kindergarten class and the teacher she loves so much!

Emma's 6th birthday

Emma turned 6. I can't believe it! She is such a sweet girl She woke us all up on Saturday and said "guys I am 6 years old. I can't believe it, I have been waiting for this all week long!"
After cake and presents (her favorite was the Tangled Barbie) we took the kids to Texas Roadhouse and ate a yummy early dinner.
Spencer fell asleep in the car on the way & he was so tired he slept through almost the entire meal.

I am so proud of my daughter and my husband. They braved the cold weather and ran in the Jingle Bell Jog! Steve ran the 5K and the 1 mile fun run with Emma. Emma got 3rd place in her division (Kindergarten-girls)! Go Emma!

Early Christmas for me

Steve has finished my entry way table! I love my Christmas Present. I get it early because we are having a party here Sunday night for all the Primary leaders & teachers. Now I just need to decorate it. I will put a new picture up here when we have the final decor in place. But for now I just love it!

I am so grateful for this man & this boy!

Many weeks ago my husband ran the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Dallas. I am so proud of him for making this a yearly goal. He beat his time from last year! YAY! Go Steve!

Many Faces of Emma

I absolutley love this little girl. I love every moment with her. She is so full of life and love for others. Every night I put her to bed and we usually spend lots of time talking about her day and reading together and praying and singing. This is my favorite time of day, she said the other night, I am going to fast for my Aunt Kelly ( my sister). I don't want her to be sad. If you don't know my sister is going through custody/ court with her ex-husband. On sunday she fasted for Kelly, it was her first time to fast. I walked in on her kneeling in the living room beside the recliner and I said "Emma get up and get dressed for church." I did not realize she was praying until she whispered "mom your interrupting my prayer- I am fasting for Aunt Kelly." I was so touched that she wanted to do this "hard thing" for her Aunt whom she loves so much.

Yesterday I was in the kitchen doing the dishes and I asked if she would help me dry the pots & pans. She said Yes and then when she was done she started sweeping the kitchen floor with out me asking her. I told her thank you for helping mommy. I love you.

I often tell her I love you, because she just warms my heart. She usually says that she loves me more than anyone in the world and she loves me all the way up in space.

I love volunteering at her school and getting to see her in the middle of the day. Spencer and I also love to go eat lunch with her. When we drop her off in the morning Spencer always tells her "I am going to miss you Emma" and today she was in a hurry and she did not hear him say this, so he started to cry because she did not answer him. Sorry kids I guess you got your tender feelings from your mama.

Halloween Begins in 2010

Yesterday we went to Steve's work to trick or treat. As always they did a great job decorating for the kids. They had a pirate Peter Pan area, an under the sea, Neverland, Toystory sections and a few more. So Fun! I love that we can participate in this tradition! Emma was Hawk Girl & Spencer was Flash, both from the Justice League. Super Heros to the Rescue!
