I'm 2 now!

Here's a play-by-play of the birthday extravaganza...

The party was held at Grandma and Papa Gaston's. Mama and Papa Hypes came as well as Uncle Jeff, Aunt Pam, and cousins, Jeffrey and Rachel. Aunt Shell and Aunt Laura also came as well as Mom, Dad and Emily's big brother, Ryan.

We had a smorgasbord of food... hot ham & cheese sandwiches, chicken sandwiches, relish tray, escalloped pineapple, baked beans, chips, salsa, finger jello and much more. Of course there was also cake and ice cream!

I'm this many.

...she standing on her head just like Elmo
at the left side of the picture.

Mama and Papa taking
a break for a photo op.

Totally unprompted, Emily immediately found
a new hat as she was unwrapping her presents.

Also unprompted, Emily immediately decided
this stroller was for her instead of her dolls.

We needed a little assistance with blowing
out the candle... and if you look closely, Emily
dug into the icing as soon as she was close
enough to the cake.

We're doing much better with using a spoon...

...except every now and then we get
food in our hair and it make for a
great hair sculpture.

Emily had a wonderful birthday party and it was great to be able to celebrate it with our family. Thanks everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes, cards and gifts. We have been so blessed to have Emily as our daughter.
