Happy Birthday!

What an amazing day for a birthday! The weather was so wonderful, and I got to spend time with all the people I love. Burger and the kids made me amazing wall decorations and Burger bought me a book. Smart guy! We had lunch at Perkins. The evening was spent with my parents at the pumpkin farm. It was great! We bounced on the giant air pillow thing and it was super fun! Then we ate at Fazzoli's. And even though Emrick ate half my food instead of eating any of her own and the free birthday cookie they gave me tasted disgusting, I still feel like we all had a good time.

Toddler Troubles

Emrick is definitely her own little person. She is so cute and innocent that sometimes I forget just exactly how naughty she is! Then, we have a week like last week and it all rushes back to me. Last Tuesday she decided to give herself a little hair cut. That's what I get for washing the dishes, I guess! It was awful. Nearly down to her scalp. I decided that I better call the hair salon and see if they could help me. I ran to the basement to grab the phone book and when I came up Emrick had colored her legs red with marker! We got the hair 'fixed' as best we could, but it's still a little interesting looking! Then at lunch on Wednesday she decided to see what corn would taste like. Up. Her. Nose. Luckily we were able to get it out and all was well. She didn't care for it much at all so I'm thinking she might not stick anything else up her nose for a few days, at least. And today while we were visiting a friend, Emrick decided that their living room walls would look better in red marker. I'm not sure if we will be getting invited back...
