It's All Over

Emily's party is all over now! We had a great time - even if it was over 100 degrees outside (and it definitely felt over 100 inside too!) She got a billion presents and I got quite a few too! Words can't express how blessed I feel to have such wonderful, caring people in my life! I was so touched at the turn out and touched that people that couldn't attend even sent gifts. That is so nice! I didn't get as many pictures as I would like but we did get a few! Emily was so distracted with all the pretty presents and all the people that I don't think I got any of her looking AT the camera - but that's okay!

YAY for 1st birthdays!

YAY for swimming! It was sooooooooooooooooo hot!

Not sure I like this birthday cake stuff...

Okay...changed my mind...I love it!

The three of us...battling extreme heat...(notice the hair is turning fluffy/curly from all the sweat! LOL!)

After the kiddie party was over - some of the adults stayed for drinks and Catchphrase. I wasn't feeling too well (I think it was the heat) but had a blast regardless! I laughed a lot and can still see our silly shenanigans while playing that game!

I have been recuperating from some sort of flu/bug - something...the past few days! Today I was FINALLY able to keep food down so I am assuming I am on the mend! I was just looking through all of Emily's and my gifts and I can't express how touched I feel. Like I said earlier, we are SO blessed.

To everyone that attended or sent cards or just well wishes...thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart! It means more than you'll ever know!

I'm so bummed I couldn't make it but I'm so glad you had a wonderful time! I did however pick up a few cards for both you and Emily. A couple for Emily cause they were so cute, just the idea of what the cards are, I couldn't pass up. You'll see what I mean. I will be sending them tomorrow. Sorry they're late though.

I had so much fun!!!! I would put money on the fact that your flu bug was a bit of heat stroke. It was HOT!

I swear I almost peed myself multiple times playing catchphrase! I am SO running out & getting that before my next party (well, not K's b-day party, but MY next party!)

Happy Birthday! :)
