Happy Birth-o-ween Emma!

Seven years ago today I was giving birth to our very prompt little girl--right on her due date! We continue to delight in her red hair and happy personality that coordinate so well with her fun birthday.

Having a birthday on Halloween has become part of how she identifies herself. She loves that her birthday is so easy to remember and that everyone seems to have so much fun on her special day! From a mother's perspective, I have to admit that it's always a very hectic day anyway and throwing in birthday excitement is always an adventure!

So as per our tradition, Daddy got up extra early to make crepes for her special birthday breakfast. Since Halloween afternoons and evenings tend to be a little over-scheduled she also gets to open most of her presents at breakfast!

Then it was off to school for the big 1st grade Halloween party where I got to help 80 kids make some cool 3-D spiders.

Then it was back home for Ellie's nap, then back to school AGAIN for her individual class gathering out on the playground, where they had pumpkin relay races and lots of healthy snacks.

And last, but not least...trick or treating!

Despite the craziness, it was a very fun day for all!

Happy 7th birthday to our sweet little M & M and Happy Halloween to all of you!

Happy Birthday to Emma! I didn't realize she was born on her due date too. There must be something in the name....Emmas must be punctual!

Happy, happy birthday Emmakins!!

Grandma and I just got back from Mexico with Heather and just saw your pix and your mom's story about your very special 7th birthday.

We love you and can't wait to see you at Christmas.

Love, Grandpa and Grandma
