Though we are naturally decaffeinated, we've got plenty of spunk (some good, some bad!).

Emmy's 9th Birthday:
What?! That can be right with how many fingers she is holding up . . . so crazy that my Emmy is 9.
Of course she didn't waste much time in opening her one-present in the morning!
We went swimming at the Ouray Hot Springs and it was fun!
The kids (and parents!) got a special birthday lunch: Nutella and banana sandwiches on homemade white bread (which is such a "treat" for us!) and raspberries. Yum. The weather got stormy and so we left - but we had fun and were ready to go anyways. :)
Emmy opened all her gifts when we got back.
Here she is working on her lego plane. :)
She finally finished it - maybe after a tear or two was shed and some help given. :) She loves it. We ate a yummy dinner of tilapia (she had 3) and rice. Then we watched "Mrs. Doubtfire." It had a few more cuss words and crude remarks than Ben and I remembered, but it was a pretty good movie.
We stopped at half-time for cake and homemade peanut butter ice cream (Emmy doesn't love PB but she wanted that for ice cream. And guess what?! She didn't really like the ice cream. :) It was kind of different . . .)
Emmy picked this cake out with me during a pinterest search. She was so excited and didn't tell anyone about it. She LOVED how it turned out and was so sweet and super excited about it. It was a nice thanks for me. :)
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you . . .
