Evening Watching the Sun Go Down…

On Wednesday we had a blue-sky day and we couldn’t stand to stay in the house any longer so we loaded up the Suburban and headed up to the park for a bit…IMG_9439-Edit IMG_8151-Edit

Littlest, little girl…

Her birthday celebration was complete with rainbow cake made specially for her by her most favoritest person, Sammy!

It is so hard to believe that 4 years have already passed us by and Emma is now 4 years old.  It is just amazing how quickly it passes!  Here are few pictures of her first days.  The first couple of weeks after Emma’s birth is such a blur due to the complications that arose right after her birth, leaving me in surgery for eight hours and weeks to recover.
