Happy Birthday Emily!!

Today is Emily's 9th birthday!! I can't believe how much she is growing up! Even just since last year, she looks (and acts) so much older!

Here are 9 things about Emily:
1. She LOVES to read - sometimes she sneaks extra reading when she's supposed to be sleeping! :)
2. She loves animals, especially our cats. She wants to take horseback riding lessons from our neighbor.
3. She has lost 12 teeth - 4 of which were pulled all at the same time! And she has never had a cavity! Her smile is beautiful!
4. She is a very good helper to her mom. It is so fun to see her play with her younger siblings.
5. She is a very good musician, and can sight-read songs from the Primary book on the piano. She is also learning to play the violin, and she loves to sing.
6. She is a great friend to everyone, and she goes out of her way to be nice.
7. She is full of energy and imagination and can have fun doing just about anything!
8. She is very persistent and doesn't give up - whether it's school, learning a new song on the piano, or even trying to get out of punishment!
9. She is full of creativity and blesses us almost daily with cards, pictures, and great ideas!

Here are 9 fun pictures of Emily, starting with the day she was born!

We love you so much Emily!! You are such a wonderful and important part of our family! We are thankful for who you are and your love for life! May all your wishes come true this year!

Love, Mom, Dad, Josh, Rachel and Caleb
