Our Bubbly Birthday Girl

I cannot believe my sweet baby Emma is 5!

I was in a bit of denial about this birthday, but Emma insists she will still be my little girl no matter how old she gets.

So far she is as sweet and cuddly as ever, so I guess I will let her keep growing.

Emma's actual birthday was a couple of weeks ago, but we will celebrate her party with friends this weekend.

Isn't it comforting that the more things change, the more they stay the same?

My sweet girl still loves her sweets, so we have a sweet celebration in store for Emma. I am eager to share all the fun with you here next week. In the meantime, stop by tomorrow to see a furniture makeover -- finished in time for the party.

Hey Melissa, Your blog is still looking good! Can you do me a favor and update my links on your side bar and button? If you could just change the .blogspot to .net that would make my day!
