We had Emery's birthday party on January 24th and it was a lot of fun. I took her to the store so that she could pick out what color plates she wanted. She had such a hard time deciding but finally decided on yellow and green plates. All of her grandparents, aunt, uncles, and cousins were there so I think she definitely felt the love and we had a full house. Grandma and Grandpa Clark brought some games for the kids to play in the backyard and we were able to just enjoy being together and celebrating Emery. I always forget that most places would not dare have an outdoor birthday party in January and I was worried that people might have to wear a sweater--definitely a perk to living where we do.

At this point she had opened the blue chair and sat on it for the rest of the party.
We are continually reminded at how lucky we are to live so close to family so that we can all celebrate these happy occasions together.
