*Happy* Birthday Emma!!

Guess who turned 5 today? Our little Emma Katherine!

How time flies! It seems like just yesterday that Emma was a chubby little toddler taking her first steps. But now she's a little girl full of joy, energy, and adventure.
Instead of rattles and teething toys, she runs and plays outside with Caleb, Abigail, and Grace, looking for adventure and...horses. Yes, if you know anything about Emma, you know that she is nuts about horses! And not just any horse...it must be Trigger. Yup, Roy Rogers' horse. You might also know that she is so full of imagination, energy, and enthusiasm that she doesn't know what to do with it all. You might walk into the living room and find her crawling on all fours with William behind her doing the same.

"What are y'all doing?" You might ask.
"We're playing horses." She'll reply.
"Horses." William echoes.
"I'm Trigger." She explains.
"I'm Black Booty (Beauty)." William adds, as they continue with their neighing and galloping. :)

Emma is such a little joy and it seems so absolutely impossible that she's growing up so fast! Happy 5th Birthday, Em!! I love you!!
