Happy Birthday Emberly!

My little girl turned six last week, and I can't believe how fast these six years have flown by! Unfortunately, the poor girl had strep throat all week, and her actual birthday wasn't that exciting. We spent a good chunk of the day at the doctor's, then at the pharmacy, and the rest of the day curled up on the couch watching movies! (Thanks Chloe, for the stack of dvds!)

Here's our sick birthday girl, wrapped up in her new flannel sheets, fresh out of the dryer, with her new little animals!

The new snow outside was pretty exciting, that's always a fun birthday present!
Posing with one of her gifts, a squishy mattress pad to make her bed more comfy, just like mom and dad's! It goes nicely with the new flannel sheets!

A sushi birthday cake! :) This was her requested dinner, but her poor throat was so sore she choked on the nori and had to spit it out and ended up crying through the rest of the meal! The ice cream for dessert went over better. We also stocked up on popcicles and juice, much easier on the throat!

I know she looks pretty chipper in the above pictures.....this is what the rest of the day looked like. Poor little girl. We've been celebrating all week though, to make up for the sick days!
