Emma knows how to celebrate in style! She didn't just have a birthday, she had a birthday weekend. On Friday, her mommy treated the three of us to a yummy breakfast
followed by Disney on Ice! This was mommy's gift to Emma.
As usual, we HAD to take silly face photos.
On Saturday, Mommy gave Emma a Parisienne tea party. Eight little ladies joined us. They were wonderful and sweet and very well-mannered. Let me just say that sequins and sparkles and the color pink were the honored guests.
First, the little ladies made fancy head bands.
Then they dined on tea and fancy finger sandwiches (cucumber and cream cheese, turkey and swiss cheese, and Nutella and Fluff).
Brittany made such pretty place cards, flowers, and cupcakes.
Here's the sweetest thing of all. Brittany and Emma sponsor a girl in Brasil via World Vision. It just so happens that this girl, Leny, was born on the same day as Emma. Of her own accord, Emma asked her friends to bring gifts for Leny instead of for her. Emma and Brittany are mailing them to Leny. How incredibly sweet and thoughtful and mature and selfless was that? Sniff sniff. Such a proud Giffy am I!
We enjoyed a family celebration on Sunday. Brittany told Emma that we could either go out for dinner or she would make Emma's favorite meal. Emma opted for the latter. Her request: a burrito bar and an ice cream cake. Y U M.
Quite a celebration, wasn't it?
Happy almost weekend!
