Emily Turns 10!
It's hard to believe that 10 years ago, I became a new mom. I'm amazed at how fast the time goes and also how many changes occur in 10 years. We celebrated Emily's birthday in great fashion. Carla and Kayla Rudie came to visit us, and they helped us celebrate Emily's birthday. Kayla, Emily, Carla, and I went to the top of the John Hancock for dessert on Friday night. I knew that Emily would love that experience and she didn't let me down. She exclaimed to Carla in a hushed and awed voice as they were looking out one of the windows, "This is the best night of my life!" On Saturday, Emily's actual birthday, we all (minus the scholarly fellow that I live with) went to the Children's Museum. Emily opened her presents that night and was so excited about getting a new Bible (which thrilled this mother's heart). Then we ended the day with cake and ice cream.
