After everyone got home from school we had a little family birthday party for Emma. Emma requested chicken in the rolls and corn for dinner. We also enjoyed cupcakes and chocolate dipped strawberries to go with our dinner. I also had some jellybeans and some other fun treats on the table for everyone to snack on.
This year Emma got a lego set and the Koala family from Calico Critters from mom and dad, a fun festive shirt and some money from Grandpa Al and Lorene, a magic kit and a lego set from Grandma Anne and Grandpa Franz, marbles from Abby, and some cool Pokemon cards from Andrew and Peter. She was so thrilled about all the gifts but was surprised by the generous gift from her brothers. The one thing Emma wanted more than anything for her birthday this year was to get her ears pierced. I took her a few days after her birthday to get them pierced. She was all smiles afterwards. We ended up picking the 3mm white gold cubic zirconium studs. She looked just darling.
