Emily's 7th Birthday

{hat made by my friend Jessica - thanks, Jessica!  Emily LOVED her hat!  You can find Jessica's blog here.}

Emily's birthday this year was not like any other so far.  It was going to be an awesome day - Daddy took off work (this is BIG!  Daddy rarely takes off work) and we were going to do whatever Emily wanted all day long.  Unfortunately, Emily woke up not feeling well.  To make a VERY long story short, Emily has had some stomach troubles ever since our whole family got Rotovirus at Christmas last year, and it still plagues her to this day.  So, we tried to make the best of it, but we didn't get to do as many fun things as we had planned.  Here's how her day went:

She woke up to presents, and bunny pancakes (that she only took a few bites of because of her poor little tummy).

One of Emily's gifts was a crayon roll, and in true Emily form, she asked if she could rearrange the crayons into "ROYGBIV" format!  She is an organizational nut!  SO funny.

After presents, Emily wasn't feel well, so she rested most of the day.  Around dinner time, she started perking up so we continued with our plans to go to Olive Garden with our whole family.  Emily only ate a few bites, but she was definitely more of her normal self, and I was so thankful for that.  Before we left, I took a few birthday pictures, including our annual ladybug picture.

Pictures from dinner:

After dinner, we went to Bebe's house for presents.  To say that Emily got a little excited might be an understatement!  Here she is with the little mice Bebe made for her - so cute.

She got 100 $1 bills - she thought she was a millionaire!

This is her, realizing that the computer mouse was not the only present - she got a laptop from Bebe and Bapop!  She was over the moon excited about all of her gifts. 

Even though Emily didn't feel great, she still had a great day with family.  This is one little girl who LOVES her family more than anything.  I was so relieved that she perked up at the end of the day - I spent the day worrying about her so much.

Happy 7th birthday, sweet Emily June!!!  Mommy and Daddy love you so much!

Oooooh, Heather!!! I LOVE seeing her expression in all the pictures! She is so beautiful - just like her mama :) And I love, love, love her full name!

I'm glad she liked her hat and I'm glad she's feeling better!

Happy 7th Birthday Miss Emily June!
