What Are You Reading?

My friend Emily had this on her blog, and I thought it was a neat idea. I am enjoying all of them. For any of you that don't know, I am a multiple book reader. I like to read more than one book at a time. Ask my mom, she knows. I have always loved books, and I have handed that love down to my daughter. This is her in her fort or "fork" as she calls it. How cute! Let me know what your reading.

Emma is 3!

Well, I offically have a toddler. Emma turned 3 on February 5th, and we just had a small party (Thanks to Cam for helping to not go overboard) with some of Emma's friends and their parents. I have a really good friend from Idaho that live in Missouri as well, and she drove about an hour and a half to come to the party with her cutie little girl Aubrey. My parents also decided to view the festivities via webcam. Hope that had a little bit of fun. She got lots of really great stuff, and I appreciate everyone coming out on a weeknight. To ring in her birthday, Emma is getting 4 new teeth. So just one last set of molars, and we are done! I wish I could say the same for Brooks who is in the process of cutting 4 teeth. Don't you just wish you were me?

Suff I am Behind On

First off, we had a kickin snow storm a couple of weeks ago and I would say we got a couple of feet. Unfortunately, it was not snowman snow. Emma couldn't understand why we just couldn't roll up the snow and make a gigantic snowman. I think she excepted my explanation, because she moved right on to her second task which was to make snow angels. Now Emma has never played in the snow before, so as soon as I told her she needed to lay down she freaked out. She eventually relaxed, and she then proceeded to make snow angels wherever there was a space. It was pretty fun, but we got pretty cold. Of course the snow right now is gone, and yesterday we boasted temperatures into the 60's. That is crazy St. Louis for ya.

Next, My sister gave this outfit to Emma for Christmas and I tried to take her picture while she was looking really cute. I have to say that I don't know how professional photographers get the shots they do with kids. I tried to get her to hold still, but alas here are some of the better pictures. Also, Emma is singing a song that she learned from Dora the Explorer. It goes like this. "Arriba up, Abaho down, Abre open, Cerra closed. I speak spanish and english too, I like them both how about you."

Bummer Wummer!

Well, it is sad to say that the Cardinals lost the Superbowl. We were all a little sad around here, and tears where shed (Just kidding). It really was a great game, and the Cardinals just couldn't hold onto it. We had a great party at our house, and we had quite the spread. It was a great time, and here are a couple of pics.
